Windows 7: font size

font size

I would like to increase the font size on my Windows 7. On everything. I don't want to go here an there to accomplish this but to just change the default font style and its size. My eyesight is getting worse as I get older. The picture you see was taken in 1974 when I was 44.

Right click on an empty part of your desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Then on Make Text and other items larger or smaller.

That's the way to do it.

On a side note, did you retire a LCDR?

I was a mustang officer and did retire as a LCDR. At ten years, as a CPO, I was selected for the LDO program and retired at 27 years.

Congrats on that, that is very good. Mustangs were my favorite officers.

You can also set the browsers to enlarge the writing. In IE, it is on the bottom right, in Opera, you have to look into Preferences. I have mine at 150% (with less than 50% vision). But I have a 22" screen - that helps.
