Windows 7 font size in some windows - Personalize

Some fonts are not accessible from the "Window Color and Appearance" dialog. Example is "My Themes" is very small on my 1900 x 1080 even at 125%. Is there a way to change the the size of this font? Thanks....

Maybe hold down control and scroll with the mouse wheel (if you have one)

That works on icons, but not a window.

I don't know of a solution off of the top of my head, maybe another member does, but I'll look into it

I'm honestly stumped on this one. The best advice I can give you is to use magnifier. Just press the windows key and plus sign:
