When I chose help->tutorials, a separate SolidWorks Tutorials Window was opened. The words are too small to read on my retina MacBook PRO 15". Is it possible to make the letters bigger without changing the size of the font in the SW main screen?
The tutorials are in CHM format which displays in the Microsoft CHM viewer. The viewing technology is based on Internet Explorer, so generally, those functions that work in IE work in the CHM viewer. The shortcuts for changing the zoom factor in IE are Ctrl-middle wheel scroll or Ctrl + or Ctrl -. So, you can try those to change the scale. Note however that Macs are not officially supported so there is no guarantee that these things will work on that platform.
Sorry I don't think that is do able even if you change SW fonts. You may have to play with windows font settings or screen resolution to get bigger fonts.
You could actually print them as PDF and then keep them on the side. And in PDF you can simply increase the vie size

These doesn't work on the tutorial pages, tried already
So was suggesting to use PDFs.
Are you testing on a Mac Deepak? I tested on Windows 7 and it works properly (otherwise, I wouldn't have posted it).
Windows 7 x64. I could not make it to work on my machine. may be needs to be checked again. Though I had been pretty sure that it should work but it didn't and I had to give suggestions for PDF.
Do you mean you need to try again? I've tried on two machines and it worked fine. You are talking about the Tutorials from the Help menu, correct?
Yes and I would check on another machine also to be sure.
OK, it does not work for me on 2014 and 2015 (both mouse and keyboard) on my M6600 (not sure why ).
I was able to get it work on a different desktop workstation, so can confirm this works
Thanks Deepak and Jim,
Following your suggestions, I did some testings.

Zoom in: control + shift + ^
Zoom out: control + shift + -
