How to enlarge the fonts of the taskbar buttons

Do anyone knows how to enlarge the fonts of the taskbar buttons without altering the dpi?

I tried all the items listed in:
Personalization -> Windows Color and Appearance -> Advanced appearance settings

but none of them does the job

Thanks.

try this from microsoft (Google search): Make the text on your screen larger or smaller

at the bottom of the tutorial I think it alters the DPI, so if the top bit alters it, try changing it back, and hopefully the text stays

There is another program for vision/hearing/etc impared that could potentially help you, even if you aren't any of those. It sometimes lets you alter things you otherwise could not, I just forget the name of it in windows 7, I'll have to get back to you on what I'm talking about.

That is in the .msstyle of the Aero theme you need Ave's Windows7 Style Builder to change it.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the maker for the change, if you are using original aero theme I have WSB & will change it for you, you will have to do 1 of these 2 thing to get it to work, Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
