Question about Samsung Syncmaster 2033SW Monitor
How do I increase the font size without effecting the pixel clarity so I can see smaller print easier and clearly
The first step for optimal readability is to set your PC's graphic output to the native resolution of your monitor.
The Samsung 2033SW is a little unusual in this regard since it provides a matrix of 1600 x 900 pixels, which is not very common.
If your graphics board has DVI output, I'd also make sure to use a DVI cable to connect to the monitor instead of VGA.
Windows XP and above support a font rasterization technology called "ClearType", see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ClearType. This page also provides references to the ClearType tuner PowerToy for XP, which is available to Windows users at no extra charge. Windows 7 has a control panel for ClearType out-of-the-box.
If you still need to increase font size, you can increase it from the Display Control Panel, too, "Medium" font size scales to 125'%, "Large" fonts to 150% the normal size.. Changing the DPI (dots per inch) setting in the monitor control panel cannot be recommended since some software cannot cope with alterations here (dialog boxes or user interfaces with text in wrong places or sticking out of the window... yeeks.)

Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.
Choose one of the following:
Smaller - 100% (default). This keeps text and other items at normal size.
Medium - 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.
Larger - 150%. This sets text and
other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your
monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.
To see the change, close all of your programs and then log off of Windows. This change will take effect the next time you log on.
