    I JUST GOT A NEW COMPUTER AND LOADED AOL 7.0 AND THE SIGN IN SCREEN TOOLBAR AND ALL FONTS ARE EXTREMELY SMALL AND I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO CHANGE THEM. I AM RUNNING WINDOWS XP. THANKS

    You can try the settings in AOL: Settings / Preferences / Font, Text, and Graphics. There's a radio button in there to set the text size to small, medium, or large. It *might* work.
    :D

    Thanks but that doesn't do it. Aol says the problem is that my screen resolution is too high (1600 x 1200) but when I reduce it, the font size stays the same while the entire screen shrinks in total size.

    Under Display Properties / Settings / Advanced/ General (at least in Win Me/NT, I don't have XP), there is a setting that says Font Size. It controls the font size based on the number of dots per inch, and so would be affected by screen resolution.

    You might try making this say Large, or choosing Other, and setting the value manually. (It will probably be a tradeoff between AOL and other applicatoins)

    Let us know, please, if this works.

    Thanks for your reply, however, that doesn't do it. I don't know if this is an aol issue or not but it appears that is where the problem exists. If I wasn't clear before, my problem is as follows: On the aol screen
    America Online header---ok
    File-edit-print--etc----ok
    Mail--people--services--settings--etc---tiny
    Font in sign-on window--tiny
    Sign-on window--tiny
