    New so please don't shoot! Help with itunes anyone?

    Hey all, please be gentle. I'm pretty new to this, and have my carpc just about built. Jetaway 1.5 motherboard, 1gb ram, 8" LCD touchscreen monitor, Windows XP pro SP2, GlobaSat BU-353 GPS Unit, iGuidance 3.0, RoadRunner, and a ton of other software. My only question as of now is......does anyone know how to increase the font size in iTunes to that I don't need binoculars to view my music on the screen?

    Again, new to this so please put your weapons away.

    There's 3 ways I know of. First delete itunes and never use it, problem solved. Thats what I did. Anyways jokin aside you can change the font settings in windows by going into the display setting\appearance tab. There you can change font sizes and if you hit the advanced button you can customize a bunch of stuff. The only problem with this is it changes all the sizes in windows. the third way is to follow this

    I like this idea the best.

    That single statement speaks volumes.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    LOL..... I'm with you on the "delete" part. I almost deleted it, but decided to hold off in case you guys had an easy solution to this. I downloaded the hex editor, but looking at the pic you posted, it looks like only the font on the song title was increased. Does this program allow you to change the font on the rest of the iTunes window?

    My big problem is that I'm looking for a music organizer that allows me to search for music by <artist> <title> <genre> and <rating>. And I need the program to be "VIEWABLE" on an 8 inch touchscreen monitor. I've tried MediaMonkey (which I love and have used for years on my desktop), and iTunes, but both have very small fonts. I've lowered my screen resolution to the lowest settings, increased the font size (also used normal, large, and extra large icon settings), and any other combination you can think of but these two programs still show really small fonts on my screen. I've resorted to using Windows Media Player 11 and have been able to edit the fonts to a good size. Somewhat happy with it, but don't love it. So if you guys know of program that allows me to better organize and retrieve my music, PLEASE let me know!!!!

    I've finished building this carpc, and getting ready to do my custom install in my Tahoe, but this is the only thing holding me up.

    What's the best program for this dilema?

    Thanks guys! I feel better already.

    Well, I've given up on the iTunes idea. Still looking for a great music organizer with large fonts. Any input?
