I run Win XP and would like to enlarge the words connected to the Desktop icons also the taskbar wording including Start.The taskbar seems reluctant to widen using the double-headed arrow method.Suggestions welcome.

Right click an empty part of the desktop - select properties - Appearance tab - Font Size -change to large or Extra large - Click apply

Maybe try right clicking the Taskbar and select properties.

If use small icons is ticked,Untick it .Apply

Untick lock the Taskbar and you should be able to drag the taskbar upwards making it bigger.
