If your vision is getting weaker and weaker every year (like my eyes) or you want larger size fonts on your large size monitor, try the below (only for Windows XP workstations).
To increase font size, simply: - Select Start - Control Panel – Display - Select Settings - Select Advanced - Select General - Select DPI settings - Increase to 120 DPI (which is 125% normal size of 96 DPI). - Then, select OK. - If prompted, restart your Win XP workstation.
Give this change a try for a few days, then go back to 96 DPI (and give it a try). After 5 days, decide which font size works best for you.
For me, I like the 120 DPI (for my new 23" monitor) – for my weaker vision.
An alternative method with more constraint. If you bump up your Font size with the DPI settings and you would rather not have the rest of the screen affected, you may also go this route. This will bump the font size up without increasing the size of any of the other items on your screen.
Go to: Start Go to: Control Panel Go to: Display Click on: Appearance On the bottom-half of the menu, select the pull-down arrow for Font size. You may select either Normal, Large or Extra Large. -- Vic
