    News App


    When I open the news App in (Sorry) Metro, the type is to small for me
    to read.

    How do I make it full screen?

    Yours doesn't open full screen? All Metro apps usually do. Any story one clicks on opens in 80% of screen with black columns on each side. The print isn't the biggest, but not the smallest either. There's no settings for font size in app settings. Right click in black right or left column to view in browser (bottom right option) The print is bigger there. Did you try global magnifier while viewing in the app?

    BTW, right click in main screen to personally customize news. That's quite nice.

    Remember we're using touch here. Mouse pointer (or finger) to top -> Pointer changes to hand -> Drag to bottom to close. Closes any Metro app. Alt/F4 to close any app/software also.
