is that where you get the option to go small/medium/large on the display size..??

I tried that
- it works on everything but the items I mentioned above
- they remain miniscule what ever size I choose there....

it's not that DPI thingy is it..??

it is probably something specific to those Betas. But since I do not use them, I cannot tell. Maybe someone else who uses the Betas would know.

this looks like the same sort of problem:

Help: Adjust Font Size (dpi) issue - Vista Forums

- yeah, I know it's Vista - the problem's the same though..

- isn't there an interface somewhere, where you can adjust these properties?

hunting through the Tutorials I found one that advised changing fonts etc here.
font size is small in IE9(BETA) and Windows Explorer (SP1Beta)-windows7fonts_etc.jpg

- to get here I had to select a non-aero theme..

then I noticed that the aberrant system font sizes had been restored when I tried the non-aero theme in IE9
- the tab font-sizes were also restored, as was the right-click context menu, etc..

- seems that just switching from aero and back out again solved the problem..

..which is a bit spooky..



- PROBLEM SOLVED??
