    Can you provide the community with a minimal working example (MWE)? Your request depends heavily on the document class you're using, so it would be helpful if you could supply that as well (in the form of a MWE, of course).

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

    Please add that code in your post window, not as a comment. And it should be MWE ( (meta.tex.stackexchange.com/q/228))

    @user59079: A minimal example gets rid of unnecessary packages and % comments in front of \setlength commands basically not used

A redefinition of the internal \@makechapterhead:

\usepackage{mathptmx}%% Instead of times which is obsolete
  {\parindent \z@ \raggedright \normalfont
    \ifnum \c@secnumdepth >\m@ne
         Chapter~\thechapter\quad%%%%  Or \par instead of \quad
    \vskip 40\p@

  • Replace \Huge with \fontsize{25}{26}\selectfont. Similiar for \large. That's all
