Windows 7: Access: text (Explorer and Internet)

Access: text (Explorer and Internet)

I have been trying to increase or bold the text on Internet pages and in the Windows File Explorer, and basically everywhere that it appears to be a 9, light grey font that I have great difficulty reading.

I succeeded in bolding and increasing to 10 the title bars and menus. But I can't find a way to increase the general text.

I can see the Information section at the top of this page and even the Do NOT make multiple threads .... lines above -- they appear not to be as light as the ones I'm seeing on Internet and Windows Explorer pages.

I'm using Windows 10. I'm posting here because I haven't found a way to log in to TenForums using my SevenForums password.

I've now updated my system information; I no longer have Windows 7 on either my desktop or my laptop; I wish I did.

A suggestion.

Because you now have W-10 our sister site should be able to better address your request.

Obviously I didn't need that suggestion; my post made that clear.

But then, it wasn't your goal to respond in a helpful manner (as I said, it's likely that a Windows 7 and a Windows 10 would have been the same or highly similar). Flexibility being a characteristic of a laid back bear, you may be less laid back than you give yourself credit for.

A suggestion: A member's SevenForums registration should also work at TenForums. As I said, mine didn't work.

Man you need to calm down Layback Bear's suggestion is what you need to do.

Seven forums registration does not work for Ten forums you need to sign up for a new account.
