Coordinating program menu font size with display resolution

by nondaj / August 3, 2004 2:48 PM PDT

When I make the font size on the menu program so that I can read it comfortably, a large chunk of the programs are not visible when the whole menu is accessed. Trying differing resolutions on my system compromises some programs when they try to run. Any solution to this dilemma?

Making the font size on program menu a six puts all my programs visible but I have to lean up to the monitor, squint, almost use a magnifying glass to read them.

look on the internet for a program called Liquid View.
It came free with my LCD monitor and it works much better than the built in Window options.

Have you tried increasing the size of your fonts through the display? You can access either through the control panel or right click on the desktop. You can increase the size at the appearance and settings tabs.
