Is there a way to enlarge the "Character Map"(start>programs>Accessories>system tools>character map) to see the images better before clicking on them? Senior eyes! Lol I've tried full screen(F11) but that doesn't work.
Many thanks

If you click on the individual character, it will enlarge.

This will take a few more steps but will work.

Start\Run\Programs\Accessories\Accessibility\Magnifer.

Hi Deke

"Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double- click Add/Remove Programs.
On the Windows Setup tab, double-click Accessibility, and then click the Accessibility Tools check box to select it.
Click OK, click OK, and then insert the Windows 98 CD-ROM when you are prompted to do so, and then follow the instructions on the screen to finish the installation. "

If you don't go WhitPhil's route I am enclosing the magnify.exe in a zip file.

Just place it in C:\Windows\System.
