The current AOL version is based on Internet Explorer, but apparently one cannot directly adjust the text size in the AOL Browser. One has to start up Internet Explorer itself, adjust the text size there, and then switch back to the AOL Browser. (If you think this is pretty strange, I can only agree with you. Strongly. And suggest you might like to try downloading yourself a decent browser.)
Adjust the text size in Internet Explorer
1. Close the AOL browser.
2. Open Internet Explorer.
3. Select View | Text Size and make a choice, five sizes are listed.
4. Close Internet Explorer.
5. Open the AOL browser.
