Tried this and now am involved in note saying changes would not take effect unless fonts are to be installed as new; also will be involved in using XP disc and not sure what decisions will have to be made there. Do you know? Sounds like any changes re DPI is going to necessitate more decisions which I am not sure I will know what to choose. Any further suggestions re this route?

Hi again,

I've never heard of that problem before. After increasing the DPI on my XP computer just now, it gave me the same message! Funny that!

I clicked okay, and then another box appeared telling me the files were already on my hard drive. I clicked okay, closed out of everything, restarted the computer, and...

Everything was larger for me. (Text, Icons)

If for some reason, it decides everything you need isn't on your hard drive, you would only need to insert your Windows XP disc and it will then copy what it needs from there.

Cheers

I finally went ahead and just chose the largest size rather than custom and it has worked most places. But here on this forum even though I have the view size to largest, I can hardly read the text it is so small. Seems to be some sites that just will not enlarge for some reason. So maybe have to use the custom setting which involves pixels per square inch. It is now set at 125 so not sure how much to mess around with this and what it would do to my other settings that I have labored to finally get into shape. Any ideas?

CTRL + will enlarge the text in-browser.

(Pressing the CTRL (Control) and the + button at the same time).

Hmmm must be doing something wrong - have tried Ctrl and + nothing happens
Have tried highlighting and then Ctrl and + nothing happens
Have tried Ctrl and shift and + again nothing happens.

My browser is IE 6 not 7 so maybe that is the catch?

Try looking in the view menu, then. There should be an option somewhere to increase the text size.
