How do you make the font size larger for the browser headers and toolbars? I'm using Windows XP/IE6. I know how to increase the size of the print on the screen, but my specific concern is the stuff across the top that's part of the browser's program. I'm sight-impaired and finding that it's so small it's giving me headaches. I know it can be bigger, as it was fine on my last computer.....Since I'm using new hardware, it's almost half the size.

Right-click on the Desktop > Properties > Appearance tab, set it to "Windows Classic Style", then click in "Advanced".

You can set the size of many parts of the Window and also the type, size and color of the fonts. The ones you should set are "Active Title Bar", "Inactive Title Bar" and "Menu". But there are also a few others you might want to customize. I like to set my fonts to Bold to make them stand out a little more.

This will change how all windows look, not just IE, but you might prefer it that way. When you have everything how you like it go to the Themes tab and save it. If you reinstall Windows you can save off the .theme file and reapply it after the new install and get your old theme back.
