Default changing text size in dialog box


Please, this has to do with the person viewing and nothing more. All is
well here on five systems.

Perhaps they are viewing their computer from a great distance?
Or they have a visual impairment?
Accessibility Options should be tried.

How far do you view your screen?

Two feet is fine for me. I am picturing the OP buying a large screen so
they could have it further away. Perhaps they like to compute in their
recliner!

If you posted in a size that people could read they'd be able to tell you no. Dialogs are usually hard coded.

I can resize all fonts I need in Display properties--> apperance --> Advanced ..
except the text size in dialog boxes stays the same and is way too small in this resolution.
Does anyone know where do you change that?

thanx in advance.

I'm talking about the system dialog boxes like "Display properties" and "Folder options" not 3rd party software.
that's a little hard to believe, it's near unreadable in high resolution.

So why do you continue to post in a minute size that I can't read?

This is a folder option dialog (the View page) See 8pt is hard coded.

29960 DIALOGEX 0, 0, 240, 230

STYLE DS_MODALFRAME | WS_POPUP | WS_VISIBLE | WS_CAPTION | WS_SYSMENU

CAPTION "View"

LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US

FONT 8, "MS Shell Dlg"

1600X1200 , and the only having this problem.
