I have tried using the troubleshooter and everything else I can think of. Why is there not a way to just increase the size of the font on this thing? I'm spoiled from my Apple Computer and this is seriously slowing me down not to mention annoying as H#LL if yoannow what I mean. Geez who is supposed to be able to read this stuff.

Where is forum for ranting?

Why is microsoft selling their product but don't have to provide support?

I have ten million things to do and I can't see and all I get is search for yourself but duh I can't see????

@TS
I am dumbfounded. I have no idea what you are pertaining to.

Are you by any chance pertaining to the display of your desktop?
Are you pertaining to the print outs from a print?
Are you referring to the the browser text size? If that is the problem press the"CTRL" key on your keyboard and scroll up.

Kenn, you can change the font size easily. I found this out by digging through the depths of Windows 7 after I got my new computer a week ago.

From the start menu go to Control Panel OR type fonts in the search box.

Look on the left side of the page that opens and click on Change Font Size.

At this point, you have 2 options.

Choose one of the default options listed, then click APPLY.
OR

Choose Set custom text size (DPI).

Using this method allows you more control over the font size. Using your mouse, drag the ruler to what size you *think* would be good for you. I have mine set at 105. Not to large, but easier for me to see than 100%. After you see the number you want, click OK, then Apply.

With both methods, you will be prompted to log off. After you log back on, check the size. If not right for you, make adjustments. Eventually you'll get the font size you want.

Also, after you log back on, your desktop icons may be re-arranged. After you get the right size, you can put them back where they were before.

edit to add: to get a good idea of the font range, you may want to first set it at 125. If that is to large, use option 2 and adjust between 100-125.

I've done the "easy way" which confines you to 125, 150, etc. and I think I'm too brain damaged to comprehend the other, lol.

If I can comprehend it, anyone can.

Put the tip of your cursor on any of the horizontal or vertical lines, it turns into a hand, hold down the left click side of your mouse, and drag the line.
