How can I increase the font size in Vista's Explorer (Not IE)


How can I increase the size of the font used in Explorer's folder pane
(Treeview) and the file detail pane (Listview)?

I don't want to change desktop icon fonts or Internet Explorer fonts
or . . . Just "File" Explorer fonts.

Thank you,

Don

At the top Tool / Menu Bar of IE go to > Tools > Internet Options >Fonts
or right click at the top Menu Bar > Customize Command Bar > Add or Remove
Command.

Thank you Jdr but if you look at my subject and re-read my post you
will see that I asked about Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

Under the Aero them you can't really as far as I know. Other than changing
from 96 to 120 dpi that is. You CAN do it if you use the Windows Classic
theme. That is done just like you did it under XP etc.

Changing the icon text size will also change the text size in Explorer
(not IE). I personally prefer just to make the text in explorer bold.

Right click desktop>Personalise>Window Color & Appearance>open Classic
Appearance>Advanced>scroll down on Item and select Icon. Here u can
change the font size from default 9, and/or select bold Click. OK and
Apply.

Cheers
Graham

Right-Click the desktop. Select Select Per5sonalize, Select "Adjust Font
Size" (In Left Pane), Click button labled Custom DPL, Make DPL greater
than 100% by sliding the ruler or typing in the drop-down box. I use
115% DPI on a screen resolution of 1600x1200.

This increase font size on the desktop as well as the toolbar.
