Windows 7: Darken background & enlarge fonts.

13 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Darken background & enlarge fonts.

Hello all, I'm looking for some help or suggestions of how to find out.

For quite sometime now, I've been looking for a way to customize the colors and font size, of the backgrounds within programs. For example, the web browser, is white, which really hurts my eyes. I understand I can increase the fonts and that is fine. I use the AVS products for converting VHS to DVD and I would like to change it's white background and small fonts. To be able to do this would make things nicer, as it stands now, it;s the cause of many headaches. Hopefully my attachment will make it more clear if I didn't explain well.

Thanks for the help
