IMac Intel :: Setting To Make All The Text/fonts In All Windows Of The System Larger?
I was wondering if there was a setting to make all the text/fonts in all windows of the system larger. I've found how to set the text size in Finder, but the menu bar at the top of the screen text was unaffected.

OS X :: How To Make Text Bigger System Wide
I�m trying to help my mum set up her imac and she has asked me to help make the text bigger on the screen. I�ve shown her how to zoom on word/safari/etc, however ideally I want to make all the text on the computer bigger - eg. menus at top of screen, finder text, etc...

The first thing I tried was adjusting the display resolution from 1920x1080 to 1600x900 or 1280x720, but this seemed to make the screen blurry.

Does anyone know if there is any other way that I can help make the text bigger for all system elements?

OS X :: Make Finder Sidebar Text Bigger?
In Leopard the Finder sidebar text was always too small. Is there a way to control the font size in Snow Leopard, maybe through the Terminal if anyone knows? Apple made everything else resizable in the new Finder but I can't figure out the sidebar text.

IMac Intel :: How To Make The Print Bigger
I copied a newspaper article to TE and printed it. The print came out tiny. I went to the tool bar and clicked bigger, reprinted and it still came out small. Then I went to TE preferences and changed the font to Arial 12, reprinted and the print was still small.

Is there a way to make the print bigger? Also is there a way to put TE in the dock instead of always going to spotlight every time I want to use it.

IMac Intel :: Screen Text / Pictures Size Bigger Than Display?
My home screen text/pictures somehow get set to a size that's bigger than the screen itself. So as you move the mouse the screen shifts around as you get close to the edges to allow you to see everything but it is very annoying. How to reset the stuff on the screen so it doesn't do that anymore?

OS X Leopard :: How Do I Make Everything Bigger
We just bought a brand new iMac. It's the one with the big screen. It just seems like we are not using the screen to it's full capacity since everything still looks very small. For example, this box in which I'm writing only takes up a small portion of the screen. And I feel like I have to strain to see the writing.
How do I make everything bigger?

Applications :: How To Make All Periods In Document Bigger
I'm writing an essay tonight, suppose to be like 7 pages. I'm at about 7 right now, however i've always been one to go...above and beyond.

I know how to do it in microsoft word, however would love to just do it in Pages.

I'd like to find all the "." in the document, which are sized 12 and secretly make them like size 15, or 17...whatever doesn't look too obvious.

In Microsoft word this usually adds me like an extra page, depending how much i've got written down..

Applications :: Make Pages Toolbar Bigger?
I have a 24" iMac and when my mom opens up Pages she can see the icons for Inspector and Fonts and everything just fine but she can't see jack ***** on the toolbar below that - the one with the font, justification, etc. options. I can make the Fonts and Inspector icons even bigger but can't do anything with the toolbar below that. Why? And why can't I find anything at all in Settings or on the Apple site about doing that? My mom isn't even a senior - no clue how anyone over 60 could see anything.

I can change the resolution of the whole screen but that's a pretty clunky solution.

It's absolutely tiny. How do I make it bigger?

OS X :: Shrinking HFS To Make NTFS Partition Bigger
All I want to do is simply shrink the size of my HFS+ partition and make my NTFS partition bigger. I tried CampTune but it doesn't detect my hard drive (common problem). I'm going to try iPartition soon. In Windows, resizing partitions was a snap. Doesn't seem to be that easy in OS X for some reason.

I was gonna try Disk Utility but it says that it may make my Boot Camp partition unbootable. I don't really want to take a chance. I just made my HFS+ partition smaller in boot camp, but it won't let me touch my NTFS partition. I'm thinking about going into Windows 7 and using Disk Management to extend the NTFS partition.

MacBook Pro :: Getting An App To Make Tool Bars Bigger?
All the tool bars are ways too small.  It's painful to read.  I know there're ways to work around this problem such as decreasing the screen resolution, or use the Zoom feature.  These are only workaround solutions because decreasing screen resolution makes pictures look less sharp, and the Zoom feature is not that fun to have all the times on your screen.  It looks like Apple should come up with a permanent fix, as it is clearly not acceptable fix.  Hopefully some Genius will come up with an App that offers a better resolution.

OS X :: How To Make Screen Size Bigger Than Macbook Pro's Monitor
i have a 13 inch macbook pro, and i want to set the screen size bigger than 1280 * 800, to maybe 1600 * 1200 or something. obviously i cant fit more than 1280 * 800 pixels in the 13 inch MBP screen, but I want it to function as kind of a 'cropped' screen - so i'd have to move my trackpad around the corners of the screen to see more of the desktop. i know it will look like crap and be a bit cumbersome, but i don't really care about that. is there any way to do this?

by the way, i don't NEED the ability to use my trackpad to move around the screen. i don't plan on using my MBP like this permanently, this is just for experimental purposes.

Windows On Mac :: Backup / Restore To Make Bigger Partition For Games?
I made my windows partition too small. I use it mainly for games and didn't fully realize the size of games these days. I decided to use a 500gb hd that regrettably is USB. I kept windows on my mac but moved steam and all the games onto the hd. Now everything is slow to load (naturally) and it just isn't a great experience. What would I need to do to backup windows onto the hd, delete my partition, make a new bigger partition, then restore onto my mac?

Applications :: Mail Text And Signature Fonts ?
Today, after using a signature in Apple Mail for the past few months, I discovered that my signature is HUGE when read by non Apple Mail users and that the text in my emails is in Times New Roman even though I set it to Helvectia by default.

Turns out this is a problem in Apple Mail, as setting a default font only affects what YOU see, not what the email recipient sees. This seems backwards to me. My emails have apparently been all unorganized for months now. I've sent out job applications thinking I had a sleek format...

Anyways, researching this, I read nearly every post in this google search, but still don't understand how to fix the problem. Apparently there's one "fix" involving stationary, and another fix where you begin typing right at the beginning of the sig...?

Can anyone tell me how to make my emails that I send from Apple Mail show up for my recipients in Helvectia and have the signature be in the same font size and Helvectia as well ? And no, clicking the "always match my default message font" button didn't do this, just in case.

OS X Leopard :: Fonts Too Small In Safari - Text Overlaps On Sites
Everything on my Imac is too small ,all fonts ,and especially fonts in Safari. Now.. I have tried everything- from simply make text bigger manually via safari/view option - to editing .plist files via terminal commands. The problem is that when I make font even slightly bigger, on many sites the text overlaps and everything becomes a big mess. When browsing on windows machine everything is bigger and it is no overlapping even with bigger font, so obviously this is possible. But how to deal with this problem on my mac? I'm even thinking to move to some other browser..and I'm so used with Safari:(I'm not afraid of working with terminal and unix internals.. I just want everything to be bigger. I have also tried to change the resolution , but then the text is blurred and is not so sharp.
