Change The Windows XP Font Size

If your Windows XP computer's default font size seems a little small for comfortable viewing, you can easily make the font larger.

Here's how:
  1. Right-click an open area of the Windows Desktop and then click "Properties" to open the "Display Properties" window.

  2. Click the "Appearance" tab.

  3. In the drop down list labelled "Font Size", select the desired size.

  4. Click "OK" to save the change and exit the "Display Properties" window.

Change XP Font Size

There are three font sizes to choose from, these being, "Normal", "Large Fonts" and "Extra Large Fonts". As the name implies, "Normal" is the Windows XP default size. To return to the default font size, follow the procedure outlined above and choose "Normal" in the "Font Size" list.

The change will alter the font display in Windows title bars, dialogs and menus. It will not normally alter the font in documents such as word processor files or web pages.
