How to adjust(enlarge) size of font, icon , etc without changingDPI

Screen resolution of my monitor is 1920x1200. Is there any way to
enlarge font, icon, etc. without changing the default DPI of 96?

True this was the second time, but I could not see my post so I thought
it was not registered for some reason. I searched at the newsgroup's web
site but no hit except the one sent for the second time.
Could you kindly point to where I can find the thread?

Sure, search the newsgroup microsoft.public.windows.vista.general for
churin. You'll find all your posts.

I suppose you could change to screen resolution setting for the display to,
say, 1024x768.

That doesn't change the icon and font sizes. A 32dpi icon is a 32dpi icon
regardless of monitor's resolution. They just look bigger.

To change the Icon size:
Right-click on empty desktop>Personalise>View>Classic, Medium or Large Icons

I do not see "Classic" in View's pull-down menu. Extra Larg Icons, Large
Icons, . . . are in View's pull-down menu, but they are all grayed.
What I want to do more specifically is this: For example, in the window
in which to do the above, I want all text fonts and associated icons be
enlarged.

Quite correct even if pedantic. I rather suspect it is the effect the OP
wants when the question, "Is there any way to enlarge
font, icon, etc. without changing the default DPI of 96?", was asked.
