The address bar in Internet Explorer and other text and fonts on the desktop can be enlarged a few different ways. First, try RIGHT clicking on a blank area of the desktop, choose "Properties". When that loads, click on the "Settings" tab. Now move the "Desktop area" (Resolution) slider to a "smaller" number. (something like 800 X 600 is usually appropriate). Now click on "Apply", then OK. and depending on your settings, choose "yes" if it asks if you like the settings. If the fonts still aren't to your liking, RIGHT click on a blank area of the desktop again, choose "Properties", then the "Settings" tab. In the "Font size" line, choose "large Fonts", then click on "Apply", then OK.
Hope this helps.
this has not been fun! Now the next problem I have is can hardly read the address line when I am on line. Font is way to small. Seems like I fix one problem and then cause another. I may have to break down and have someone come to my home and show me what I need to be doing. I feel like I am spinning my wheels and not getting anyplace. I use Windows 98.
