How do I change the sizes of the fonts in my display? I have Windows 95 on my computer. When I restarted it, all of the fonts in my display are bigger and chunkier, and it looks like I've got a computer for the disabled reader. Not that there's anything inferior about a disabled reader--my eyes are fine, though, and this magnified version of everything is really too much. Can I fix it?

go to start/settings/control panel/display/settings tab, what is listed for screen area and colors.
Do you have any options available under colors.

You want to increase your screen area.
If you have a 14 or 15" monitor, it may be best to set it at 800 x 600 pixels.
If you have a larger monitor, 1024 x 768 pixels (or whatever your preference).

Go to the Appearance tab.
These are the default settings below.

Then look down and see the box that says "Item:"

Click in the drop down and pick "Icon"
It should be size 32 and below that the "Font" is "MS Sans Serif" size 8.
