Windows 7: Change font size without changing anything else

Change font size without changing anything else

In WinXP, there was an option in the display settings where I could increase the font DPI. This ONLY increased the windows program fonts and affected little else. So the text under the icons was small, as was the text in various dialog boxes. However, it would have NO effect whatsoever on web pages. Images were unchanged, fonts were unchanged.

Is this possible in Windows 7? I want to see web pages at their original resolution and change them individually if I want to.

It looks a bit of an easy solution but have you tried to set the percent of dpi through the web pages loaded, at the right bottom
