Changing the system font
Mon, 01/12/2004 - 22:35
I set my monitor resolution higher, thus giving me more screen real estate to work with.
But, now i find the fonts on the system a bit small. For example, the fonts for the bar across the top of the screen (mac OS 9.1) and the fonts for other menus etc. how do i make them BIGGER??

In OS 9, those font sizes are adjusted in Control Panels --> Appearance--> "fonts" tab. While you're in there, here's a quick list of my favorite OS 9 settings, and why they make life better:

True, that particular option is not there. To change the system font size, try this third-party shareware control panel, AppearanceHopper:
I've never used it myself, but it purports to do what you ask. If you try it, I'd carefully monitor the stability of your OS 9 system, since these third-party mods sometimes cause conflicts and instability. There may be other apps like this out there, too.
Please report back here how it works for you! This is a very popular request and others would like to know if it works.
For OS X users, this (and more) can be achieved with Tinker Tool:
