Joseph, You can go into the control panel and click on the display icon. From there choose screen resolution and lower the number on the bar. Save the changes. This should make the screen and fonts a bigger so that you can read it.

When you are on the finder Click View, scroll down to 'show view options' and from there you can change the font size looks on the desktop. You can even make the folders bigger.
To make the font bigger for folders open the desired folder you want and go to the view menu and like above goto the "show view options' option and when the window pops up you can adjust the font size.
I also suggest dropping your screen resolution to a lower number. That can be found by clicking the apple, going to system preferences and click displays under the hardware header. From there move the resolution down to 1280 x 800 or 1024 x 768. But for screen legibility and such I would not drop the resolution any farther than 1024 x 768.
To change the text size you will need to right click on a blank part of the screen/desktop so you get display properties or click start then settings then control panel then display. When you get that window up you can click on the appearance tab along the top. In this window along the lower left is font size. You can increase the size of the font by clicking on the box then selecting the size you want. This will change the size of the font as soon as you click on apply. This only changes menu text sizes.
To change everything overall you want to click on the settings tab then the advanced button lower right. It should come up to the window we want but if not it is under the general tab. Under DPI settings (sometimes will show as text size or font size but all are the same setting) the default is set to 96 try selecting the 120 size. This will increase the size of the text used. You can also select custom and enter any number. You will probably have to reboot the computer after changing this unless you have it in the section below to apply without restarting. Hit apply and reboot if required and your text will now all be bigger. If the text is too much bigger than stock some programs or windows may not look right or the text is not aligned. Thats typical if the text is too big or the window it is in is a fixed size and can't change. If this happen you can try the custom setting to find a bigger size that won't cause problems.
You can also use the visually impaired utilities one of which is a magnifier. That just enlarges an area around the mouse so it isn't quite as easy for daily use.
I'm stumped on the % icon thing. What normally is there is the clock. Unless this is a icon that shows battery charge or something like that? You can usually get these to display again by starting the utility from the start menu - all programs and then look for a setting that says display on toolbar.
you have to change to a different font type to change the size
You can use this method to change the Font size; from the standby screen; press menu, settings, display & light, font type, select desired font type, then press save.
If there is an option for to change the font size for caller ID it should be in the "screen/keyboard" option menu if not see if you can get a smaller picture size for your contacts then maybe the font would be bigger.
