We all know that font size can be increased or decreased through ‘font-size’ option from home ribbon’s font panel or through font dialog box.In this blog, I am writing two shortcut keys to increase or decrease ‘font size’ in MS word.
Here are the steps and shortcuts keys:
Select the targeted text first and then press CTRL + > to increase the font size or CTRL + < to decrease the font size.
Note: To get the < or > characters, you will have to press SHIFT key too, if you do not press the SHIFT key, the shortcut keys will be considered as CTRL+ , (comma) or CTRL+ . (Dot).
Let’s make it more clear.. press CTRL + SHIFT + > or CTRL + SHIFT + <.
You can also use the following shortcut keys to increase or decrease font size in MS Word:
To Increase font size: CTRL+ ] (closing square bracket with CTRL key).
To Decrease font size: CTRL+ [ (Opening square bracket with CTRL key)
Note: Here no need to press the SHIFT key.
