    Tiny taskbar (XP home - SP2)

    I have a new monitor (flat), and am running 1280 X 1024, which works great for some fine work I'm doing. But, it reduced everything else to tiny proportions which are almost invisible.
    After some fiddling I got the Desktop changed by making the Icons 48, and the Icon text 14. Sadly, that hasn't changed the rest of the things like taskbar, right-click menus, and all the other
    stuff that's Windows. Where can I find the adjustments for the regular text, taskbars, etc.,????
    I've checked Properties and those screens, Windows explorer, but couldn't find anything there, so I'm lost. Thanks for past help.

    Instead of changing individual items, try changing the dpi setting:
    - Open the Display Properties control panel.
    - Activate the Settings tab.
    - Click Advanced...
    - Activate the General tab.
    - Select Large (120 dpi) from the DPI setting dropdown.
    - OK your way out.

    (See Microsoft Windows XP - Increase or decrease the size of objects and text on your screen)
