I am running Windows XP/ SP2 & IE6. 1024x768, Large Fonts selected.
My O/S fonts have become very small recently, probably an size 8 or so. Try as I may I cannot increase that overall size in windows such as the Control Panel category page.
Changing the font sizes on web site pages or any other pages displayed seems simple enough and I have done that, however, the basic Windows O/S pages are way too small.
I have tried rt.clicking my Desktop/Properties/Appearance/Advanced/Windows Text, but when I click on Windows Text the selection area s for fonts and size do not appear.
I have customized all other fonts in the categories that appear in the drop down menu, but I just cannot increase the sixe of my font in windowssuch as the Control Panel window.

Have you tried playing with the Advanced settings of the Appearance tab in the Display Properties applet?

Start >> Control Panel >> Display Properties >> Appearance tab >> click Advanced

There are two radio buttons to the right of the Windows and Buttons | Color Scheme | Font Size pull down menus. That is where you can customize the font settings, colors, and border sizes for all windows, dialog boxes, etc. You can customize your windows to your liking and change font colors, sizes, etc.
