How to Enlarge Solitaire Cards on a Computer

If you have a computer with Microsoft Windows 7 installed in it, then you should have Solitaire present in the games section of the operating system. Whenever Microsoft launches a new version of Windows, it never forgets to add some games that users can enjoy playing without paying anything, and Solitaire is one of them.

When you launch the game, it may be difficult to view the numbers present on the cards, especially if you have a small monitor screen, or you have weak eyesight. The game does not offer you to increase the size of the cards, as there is limited playing space. However, you still can increase the size of the card numbers, which will allow you to play the game with ease and comfort.
