    Post changing font size of file names in Windows Explorer?

    I have my LCD TFT working and now I am trying to increase my font size in Windows Explorer of the text of the file names. I played around with the appearance under the display properties and didn't have any luck. Is their any way to change that font size? I got the size of the menu bars and active windows, etc...all up to a larger, readable font.

    Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced -> General -> Font Size

    this will change the font for everything windows displays.

    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    Thanks but it didn't really help because I can only run my screen at 640x480 and 720x480, and both of those size's leave the font size option greyed out.

    If you go to:
    Control Panel->Display->Appearance tab
    there is an "Item:" section. Have you gone through all of these settings? 8 of the settings have a font size which you can increase.

    Or, under the "Scheme:", have you tried picking something like "Windows Standard (Extra Large)"?

    I'm not sure if these settings will affect Windows Explorer font size, but one of them should.

    I've done all that, still didn't make the windows explorer font any larger. Made the start menu and title bars larger tho.
