How to increase font size on Win7 Date & Time?

I cannot read Date & Time. I can left click and choose "Adjust Date and Time" then "change date and time" then "change calendar settings" to get the format I like, but I can not find any place to increase font size. Any help will be appreciated. bleeda

Hi bleeda, all I know is, if you unlock the taskbar it can be dragged up to display like this. Sadly, it does not increase the font.

Thanks Roadrunner, I found that one too. I use the old on a 32bit but it will not work on this new 64 bit that I just built.

That`s an easy one, me thinks.

Right click the desktop, choose personalize, click display and set it to Medium 125 %.

Now you can see everything, no problem.

Many thanks AddRam, but it sure gave me an AH-HAA moment. As in: AH-HAA I should have thought of that!! Just another one of those many things I used to know but could not bring it back without some help.
Thank you again. bleeda
