    I have an HP deskjet 5150 and I would like to have the printer use larger print than the default size. Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can do this?

    In your program, adjust the font size, if that's what you mean. Or click Print/Page Setup in File menu, set it up to increase the size.

    Thanks for the response. I know how to change the font size on the screen - what I want to do is to print anything so that the printer will print a larger font than the default size.

    Any ideas?

    What I usually do is copy/paste the document into Word (or WordPad/Notepad). Select all and change the font to a larger type.

    This is what I do as well. The printer itself does not have a default font size.

    it would probably be better to change the font size in your file (at least you will know if it will fit on a page). see if you have this setting (screenshot below) "% of size" (of course that will change the size of everything)? g/l, sos

    ^^^ That's what I meant. Either change your document font size or use that properties window to resize the output, but it may be too large for a letter.
