Font size

I have a Small Samsung tablet with no external keyboard. I am trying to read my emails and the fonts size is way to small to see. How can I get it larger? I went into forum and it says to hold down the Ctrl and the + sign, but can't do that on this tablet as the keyboard is built in. When I bought the Tablet I didn't realize how small it would be. I purchased it in CHINA, so it will be to hard to exchange. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Re: Font size

Are you able to "pinch" the screen in order to enlarge or reduce the screen image?  Place your index finger and thumb in the center of the screen and open them in order to enlarge the screen; conversely, with your thumb and index finger opened, slide them closed to reduce the screen.

Re: Font size

I can enlarge most anything on the web by using my fingers, but can't do it in my emails. Fonts are way to small.

Re: Font size

How are you accessing the email?  On a tablet or what?

Re: Font size

I normally check mail on my PC, but sometimes on my tablet and that is where I'm having issues. I've tried everything and the writing will not get any bigger. I don't have any issues with other web pages, only with my personal e-mail. I hope I can get this resolved soon as my eyes are already bad and this makes it worse. Thank you for any help.

Pinching the screen to make it larger helps with everything, but my e-mail messages.

Re: Font size

Did you try pinching your fingers together, then open them on the glass screen?
