Windows 7: Changing font size... not the icon

I think this is different than the other things you've tried, it makes everything larger including the text in Word docs, it even makes the docs themselves larger and the text in webpages, it even makes the logon text larger, control panel, display, set to 125 or 150.

If I'm off base with this I'm sorry for wasting your time.

I already went there but, as stated before in one of my posts, there is no option to increase the size on the "Active Window Text"... and if there is, I have not been able to find it.

See, that's just it. ON my RC Win 7, I had it at 125% dpi and it worked a treat... NOT so much with the RTM version though.

As I explained before, that was the first thing I did, go from Normal (100% dpi) and increase to 125% dpi... anything over this setting and everything gets screwy (mouse won't hit the hyperlink correctly while browsing, etc, etc).

Your not wasting my time though and I appreciate all the help, really I do, its just frustrating and annoying at the same time to think that, One minute, with one Windows 7 (RC) I am as happy as a pig on, erm, well... you know and the next, with another version of Windows 7 (RTM), I'm annoyed and frustrated by the same Windows OS.

To the best of my knowledge, I have no more or no less installed on this RTM version of Windows 7 that I had not installed on my previous RC Win 7 version. As a matter of fact, I could swear and bet good money that I did not even touched or made any changes to the RC version, it suggested it to me and I thought... WOW, this thing is so intuitive is not even funny.

It is because of that suggestion of the RC version that I knew what to do when the RTM version did not suggested or do so. Oh well... I have survived this long with less I guess.

Too bad that wasn't the solution you were looking for.
