    Can someone please tell me how to make the text in dialog boxes and on things such as tabs in message windows bigger? My wife has vision problems and finds the very fine text in those places too small to read. I have increased text size and heaviness in those Windows boxes etc that are changeable from the Display Properties dialog but those changes do not affect message boxes etc.
    WinXP-SP3 with 2Mb RAM.

    Click Advances in the Appearance tab of the Display Properties dialog box.
    Click on the message text in the little sample dialog box.
    Change the font size.
    OK your way out.
