Text size

Is the text too small? The exact method used to adjust text size varies in different browsers and even in different versions of the same browser. However, the option is usually found under the View menu labeled: Text Size, Text Zoom, Font Size, or Zoom.

You can also use your keyboard by hitting the Control (or Command) key and the + (plus) or (minus) key.

Why is [pdf], [doc], [intranet] at the end of some links?

The main goal of the website is to provide accurate, accessible information to all of our students, staff and instructors. We try to avoid linking to documents that require extra software to open, but sometimes it’s necessary. When this occurs, a label is added to the end of the link describing the type of document you’re opening.

  • [PDF]: Short for Portable Document Format. Some documents need to retain certain formatting, or need to be printed. Most modern browsers can open PDF files, but if yours doesn’t you can download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • [DOC]: Files created with Microsoft Word. There aren’t many of these on the website, but in order to view these files you’ll need to have Microsoft Word installed. Some other word processors, such as WordPerfect or OpenOffice, can open Word documents but the formatting may not be retained properly.
  • [INTRANET]: Some links are only accessible to faculty and staff using computers connected to the PCC network. You will not be able to access these pages and documents from an off-campus computer.
