    Hi, Also- at least in higher versions of Internet Explorer, you can change the View settings for text sizes....this will not change all the text you see to a bigger size, but for most it will help.l
    There are four or five levels....go to: View> Test Size up top of any IE screen, select size that helps.....
    For the size of fonts: Screen resolution will help, but font sizes goes along with that....Right click empty spot of desktop, select Properties>Settings>Advanced.....change to Large Fonts ((Though, you should be using at least 800x600 resolution or your screen area will be too small and text too large...so check Resolution first, then adjust font size.
    What color depth settings are you using? Windows 98 should be at least 16-BIT color depth, or more, if monitor and video card support it. Most newer will.
    If you only have 16 or 256 colors and cannot raise color depth to 16-bit, you need to get the correct video drivers loaded.
