How To Make Text Bigger (or everything for that matter) On Your Windows 10 Computer

As I age here at “What’s On My PC”, my eyesight does not get any better. This tip here is most often requested by people (in my age group) whom I have assisted over the years.

To make the text bigger (or everything for that matter) on your Windows 10 Computer, do this:

To make just the text on your screen bigger, select Start Settings Ease of Access  > Display , then adjust the slider under Make text bigger. To make everything bigger, choose an option from the drop-down menu under Make everything bigger.

Did you know that Chromebooks have an auto expiration date?

When buying a Chromebook it is a good idea to determine the “Auto Expiration Date”, for the model you purchased. The “Auto Expiration Date” is the date when you may stop receiving important updates (for new features and crucial security patches). Typically, Chromebooks have a minimum 5-year window of updates; but, I am now seeing that some of the new Chromebooks, produced in 2020, will have a minimum 8-year window of updates. I am also seeing various models, produced in the past, where Google has extended the window of time for receiving updates.

When a Chromebook reaches its’ “Auto Update Expiration” date you will receive a notification saying “This device will no longer receive the latest software updates. Please consider upgrading”. The Chromebook will continue to function but could become a security risk at that point.

You will often see older Chromebooks at bargain-basement prices, so be wary and check for the “Auto Expiration Date”.

So, how do you go about checking the “Auto Expiration Date” on a Chromebook?

The best answer I can give to that question is this. Visit Google’s “Auto Update Policy” site where you can look up your Chromebook Model to determine the expiration date; OR, If you are using a Chromebook with “Chrome Education Upgrade or Chrome Enterprise Upgrade”, the AUE date is available in the Google Admin console. According to this site, Google publishes a model’s AUE date on this page after its release, giving buyers time to make purchase decisions.

In closing, “Please check the AUE date when making a Chromebook purchasing decision”.

To help out a former tech blogger who at one time managed the site “Teck-Line” (back in 2008), I have placed here on the blog, links to his NEW site called “Soulja of Hope“. You will notice here at “What’s On My PC” the following type of link and graphic on the pages you visit that will get you to his site. This former tech blogger and I recently crossed paths, once again; but, this time it is a crossing of paths where Technology and Christianity met. So, be inspired; visit “Soulja of Hope” and encourage this man to continue his journey in his walk with Christ in helping others see that there is hope and that we are all equal in the eyes of God.
