    I am trying to enlarge the font and bar size in: File-Edit-View-Favorites-Tools-Help. Also the address bar right above could also be enlarged a bit. Does anyone know how to do this? I've enclosed a screen shot so you can see how small the fonts are on my PC.

    Thanks: Dave

    I am not sure exactly what you are trying to enlarge, but if you go into the Settings menu > appearance you can adjust the size of fonts there. If you want the webpage to display larger then you use the Zoom options.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. I'm trying to enlarge the 2 bars in the upper left corner of the pic I supplied but no other fonts. I have all my fonts set to my liking and sometimes when you change one, others change somewhere else. The job would be a lot easier if I knew the names of all these bars like task bar address bar ect.

    Are you talking about the size of text in address bar and the menu items? I don’t understand what you mean by enlarge the two bars.

    After considerable reading I have determined that what I'm trying to do is NOT possible. Thanks for reading my post. Dave

    Have you tried going to Control Panel - Display - then under "Change Only the Text Size" select Menu Bars and increase the size there? Before making any changes write down what they are currently so you can put things back the way they were.

    I'm not sure if I've tried your idea yet? I'm not seeing "Change Only the Text Size". Screen shot attached. Thanks: Dave

    Perhaps it's because you are already magnifying at 150%. What is your operating system?

    Have you tried resetting IE? It appears that you have made some customizations. It's not normal for the menu bars to be transparent from the end of the part you see to the far right side.

    Yes I made many customizations. After a reformat, I have all my personal settings back except those fonts in the menu bars. The trouble is, that if you change things in one area it seems to have an effect on other areas as well. So I've sorta given up on my quest. LOL

    Yes, that's probably what's happened.
