Increase Font Size In XP

Some people may want to increase the default font size in Vista, possibly to help overcome visual impairments. Vista makes it simple for users to increase the font size to suit their individual preferences and physical needs.

In a previous tip, I showed you how to increase the font size in Vista. If you are an XP user, you can still increase the font size but the steps to do so are slightly different.

To increase the font size in XP:

  1. Right click a blank part of the desktop.
  2. Click the Properties option.
  3. From the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.
  4. Click the Advanced button.
  5. Click the drop down arrow under DPI setting and click the Large size (120 dpi) option.
  6. Click OK twice.
