Grow / Shrink Font

As you format a document, there are times when text size should be increased or decreased for effect. MS Office has a nifty feature to address font size.

Open the document
Go to Home tab / Font group

The quickest way to change font size is to click the Grow - Shrink icons.

To grow the font: Click on the letter A with the small triangular shape facing up.

To shrink the font: Click on the letter A with the small triangular shape facing down.

Click several times to enlarge or decrease the font size.

An alternative is to click the Font size box
Click the blue triangular shape facing down
Select the font size from the drop-down list.
