Text Sizing

The text size in Maine.gov is automatically based on your default browser text settings, but is resizable to fit your viewing preferences. If you find the text too small or too large, you can easily change the text size using your browser resizing function at any time.

The easiest way to change the text size is to use the shortcut keyboard commands of Ctrl+ or Ctrl- (Command+ or Command- on the Macintosh) to increase or decrease the text size.
