Windows 7: New theme causes strange zoom out effect

New theme causes strange zoom out effect

Hello,

I tried applying the dark high contrast theme that comes with Windows 7 in order to minimize eye strain. I love the look of it, but now the text in my browser URL bar and the tabs in the browser seem much smaller than they were on the old theme. I may have done some customizing of that a long time ago because I sit far away from the monitor, but I don't remember exactly how to change the size of those elements.

Any thoughts on how to figure this out?

Thanks,

Dean

Getting size & appearance right can be a bit tricky.

Just bookmark that site to know the default settings if you ever need to go back.

Btw, you're welcome.

Is there a theme without the lens flare effect on taskbar items?
I find the standard Win 7 themes, with the high amount of white-on-white text in the task bar from the 3D lens flare effect, to be very difficult to read, and the mouse hover adds even more white, making it even worse. The only alternative I've seen so far is the high-contrast theme, which is...
