Which Kindle?

On the Fire while in a book bring up the bottom menu bar and select Aa.

On a Keyboard Kindle, while in a book, press the Aa button.

You're welcome.

I just got a Kindle Touch 3G which includes the ability to access the Internet via wi-fi (sort-of). The problem is that the font is so small on the web pages that I can't read it. I know it's possible to change the font size in books, but is there any way to do so if you are not actually in a book. If not, the browser function is pretty much worthless.
Thanks.

Change Fonts, Line Spacing or Margins
You can change the fonts, font size, line spacing, or margins of the page display for a Kindle book.

Note: The text size of menus and other screens is fixed and can't be modified. You can't change the text appearance of PDFs.

While reading, tap the top of your screen to show the reading toolbar, and then tap Aa.
Change the text display for your eBook:
Font size - Select the size of the text.
Font type - Select the font of the text.
Some books offer a font specified by the publisher. If this is available for your title, you'll see the Publisher Font option.

When i tap the aA it only allows changing font size not the actual font for a different look. Is it possible only one font is available for this particular book?

Is it possible to darken the text?

Michael: have you tried adjusting the brightness of the light - that will change the contrast of the text with the screen.

And yes, it is possible that there is only one font for that book - set by the publisher.

Tap/touch the top of the screen. It will appear.
