MS accessibility and font sizes

  harrisonclan 15:34 25 Feb 2005

hi there
I am partially sighted and use accessibility to help. I use 800 x 600 to increase overall size of icons etc, but cannot find any way to increase the font size of filenames within folders any futher.

any ideas gratefully received.

on Mouse or Keyboard,Hold down Ctrl And Scroll to a bigger font. It does not alter font size in document. Also it does not work in all applications, but does in Word.

Alternatively try Ctrl + [ and Ctrl + ] to increase/decrease font size. Again does not work in all situations. Just try it out

Hi, right-click on desktop go to Properties>AppearanceTab then look at FontSize change to Extra Large - then click Apply and OK.

Not sure if this affects Folders but will increase font size on desktop.

In your Browser Click View, Text Size, select a larger text size than you are currently using
