Windows 7: Resize calculator

Resize calculator

Is this possible? I see that the window edges cannot be dragged to enlarge them. It would sure help my aging eyesight to make the standard calculator about twice its size.

I'm afraid not. Even if it would allow you to resize the window itself, it would require that the various controls (buttons) would also be resizable. I found a program called Sizer that allows changing the calculator's window size but the buttons and display boxes still stayed the same size.

You could temporarily change the screen resolution which would make the calculator bigger on the screen but that isn't a particularly elegant solution.

You could try searching for an alternative 3rd party calculator that is resizable but I personally don't know of any.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Maybe this is something MS might consider in the future. How does one suggest this to MS? Thanks, strollin.
