The other day I was at my Mom’s house and she asked if I could take a look at her MacBook. Everything was working fine, but she found that the fonts were a little small. I went poking around and was able to enlarge the fonts in the Finder and on the Desktop, but that seemed to be the only places, other than individual applications, where I could alter the font size.
So to all my Mac gurus out there, I have a question. Is there a global font option to enlarge all fonts system wide?
In Windows there an option called “Font Size” under the Display Properties that allow you to set the font size for the entire system. Is there a similar option in Mac OS X?
Michael, other than the Finder/Desktop view options, there is no system-wide font size control that I’m aware of. I do think that apps will remember the default font sizes you set for each, though.
I have the same problem. Apple doesn’t seem to realize that the small font size makes many applications practically unusable for many users.
I suggest that we put together a list of users sharing the same view and approach Apple directly.
