    I have changed my display to 1028 x 768, but I cannot change everything to a larger type size. Some will change in 'Properties > Appearance' and 'View > Text Size', but some will not change within applications and web pages. I have also tried 'Programs > Accessories > Accessability > Magnifier', but it is too ackward. Is there another way that I am missing? Thanks, Bob

    You can use

    Start>Settings>Control Panel

    Click on Internet Settings and then click Accessibility.

    In the box that comes up, put a check mark on 'Ignore Font styles.....' and 'Ignore Font Sizes.....'.

    You can also select a different font and size from the Font settings in the Internet Settings box.

    You can also click "View, Text Size" on your browser and make it larger.
