Windows XP: How do I darken text?
I recently had a new hard drive installed on my computer. Now I notice that the normal text on webpages appears too light and too small, making it difficult for me to read. Even the "File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help" headings at the top of the screen appear too light.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who can tell me how to enlarge and darken (or make bold) the text. I sure there has to be a simple solution. Thank you.

If you are using Firefox,you can go into tools>options>content and change the fonts.
You can also right click on your desktop and select properties>appearance>advanced>and click on the Item box and select font changes in there.
Hope some of that helps.
