# Beamer - How to make URL big?

Consider the following example. I want to make the website address very big. I have tried things like \Large etc. but to no avail. I think because of the URL command. How can I keep the formatting of the URL command, which I like, but make the font size bigger?

For your information, I have included my full preamble before beginning the document in case I need to add packages etc.

Thanks

• try: \Large{\url{WWW.URL.COM}} Feb 2, 2018 at 13:18
• Where exactly have you inserted \Large and friends? I added it in side the center, works just fine. Given the font size used in this MWE, you probably need to use a larger side, .e.g. \huge to notive a change Feb 2, 2018 at 13:18
• That did not work unfortunately. However! I tried messing around some more, it seems if I put \LARGE before a word, it does work, including the URL. But "large" has to be all caps otherwise it doesn't work. Is there a reason for this? Maybe a package I'm missing? Feb 2, 2018 at 13:20
• @naphaneal, it's {\Large whatever}... \Large is a switch, not a command. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7312/… Feb 2, 2018 at 13:53

\large\url{..} works fine, but the difference between the font sizes is not very big. However if you place booth variants below each other, you'll see the change.

\documentclass[t]{beamer}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\url{WWW.URL.COM}

\large\url{WWW.URL.COM}

\Large\url{WWW.URL.COM}

\LARGE\url{WWW.URL.COM}

\fontsize{48}{56}\selectfont\url{WWW.URL.COM}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


• At this large size, you may need to add kerning around the dot.
