D2L - Changing Default Font Size (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

Each user is able to control the default font size of the D2L display. Changing this setting affects the NavBar, in addition to most other D2L features that appear in text.

Important: If you use a Large Font size, there is a possibility that you will not be able to see all NavBar items. When the font size is increased, and/or too many tools are added to the navbar, it can "push" items off the screen -- making certain menu options inaccessible.

Increasing/Decreasing Font Size

  1. From within D2L, click on your name in the upper right corner to open the drop-down menu, and select Account Settings.
  2. For the option Font Settings select a Font Size (Note that the default size is 14, but font sizes can be set to other values: Small, Medium, Large or Huge).
  3. Select Save and Close to save this preference.
