I just upgraded my monitor to a Samsung 20" widescreen digital with a resolution at 1680x1050 pixels.  Under display properties, I was able to customize the font size to bigger, but I notice that in certain popup windows or menus, the font size is still microscopic.  An example is when I right click on the desktop and select properties, the text in the display properties window is still microscopic.  This is very frustrating.  Please help.

-Thanks in advance.

Right click the desktop and select Properties.

Go to the Appearance tab and at the bottom you should be able to change the font size.

If that doesn't help at all, then I'd suggest going to the Microsoft Knowledge Base and see if you can spot the option there. You will most likely have to search quite thoroughly though.

Good luck
