I've downloaded an article from Newstext and it's pure computer gobbledegook! What now?
Articles are saved as zip files,
so you will need to download a free version of

it wherever you can easily find it later.
How to change my screen resolution to get a bigger font size?
PC Users: Go to the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, double click on the icon.
This will open the "My computer" folder. Select the "Control Panel" folder
and double click. Then select the "Display" icon and double click. This
will bring up the display properties of your monitor, click on the "settings"
tab. On the right is an area called "desktop area" and it displays what
your current screen resolution is, for example 800 by 600 pixels. Using
the sliding scale "Less to More" you can either increase the screen resolution
to fit everything on your desktop or decrease the scale. Once you have
decided upon your new screen resolution, click on the "apply" button.
The screen will go blank for a few seconds whilst it reconfigures the
screen resolution. The screen resolution can be altered at any time.
MAC Users: Go to the Apple Icon, select Control Panels,
then select Monitors and select the screen resolution you wish to change
to, your computer will automatically update your screen resolution.
