I need to enlarge my font size, what can i do?


To enlarge your font size:
For XP OS:
Right click on your desktop background, and select properties. A window will come up showing you the various system properties. At the top of this window click on appearance. At the bottom you would see the options to change the font size.

For Windows 7:
Option 1:
Click the start 'Windows button' at the bottom, the type either 'Appearance' OR 'Font size', then enter. You should be able to see the options for adjustment of font size.
Option 2
Right click on your desktop background, then choose 'Personalization'. this should take you to a window where you can edit different appearance settings. At the bottom, you should see font size. You can also edit your themes as well. Most time themes, change everything about the system including font sizes. Thanks

I made the font on web pages bigger but how do I make the font on yahoo messenger bigger?


Yahoo! Messenger allows you to personalize your font settings by changing the default font and color for text that appears in your instant messages.
To change the default font settings:
  1. Click the Messenger menu and select Preferences. The Yahoo! Messenger Preferences window will open.
  2. Under Category, click Appearance. The Appearance options will display at the right.
  3. Click Change Fonts & Colors. The Message Text Style window will open.
  4. Change the settings for the font, font style, font size, and font color.
  5. Once you have them the way you like, click Use Default, to set them as your default font settings. (Click Cancel if you don't want to use these settings.)
  6. Click OK. You'll be returned to the Yahoo! Messenger Preferences window.
    • Note: Click the checkbox option for Always use my fonts and colors if you want to only see your font settings. (Your font settings will override your friends' font settings and you'll just see yours.)
  7. Click Apply, then click OK.

I was able to download this zip file about a xp theme and i was able to unzip it already, but there's no executable file to istall my new theme. please help me.. thanks,...


Prepare Your Computer
  1. Because Micro$oft wants you buy everything from them, Windows XP wants theme files to be digitally signed. If they aren't then XP won't let you use the themes. You must first patch your uxthemes.dll file in your C:\Windows\System32 directory. This can be easily done using the Uxthemes Patch which you can download here. The patch supports Windows XP, SP1, SP2, XP 64 bit and Windows Server 2003. Run the patch, it will "fix" your uxtheme.dll file so you can use 3rd party visual styles. Disregard any warnings about files being changed, that is what we want to do. After you run the patch reboot your computer. Note: We recommend you create a restore point before running the patch just for good measure. We did not author this file we have used it our selves with no problems, use it at your own risk.
Install the XP Theme Files
  1. Themes are usually downloaded as a .zip file which must first be scanned using a virus scanning program, then unzipped to a temporary folder you can create on your desktop. Inside that folder you will most likely find a wallpaper image, .msstyles file, a .theme file and possibly a font file. it all depends on what the author has chosen to include in their theme package.

  2. If your theme package contains one or more font files (.ttf) copy them to your C:\Windows\Fonts\ folder.

  3. You may also find one or more .theme files (like axis.theme. Copy it/them to your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder. You will see a folder called Luna already in there, leave that alone, it is your existing Micro$oft XP Theme.

  4. Locate the .msstyles file, create a folder in the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder, I usually name it what the .msstyles file is named (like axis.msstyles so the folder would be axis).

  5. If you find a file called ShellStyle.dll, create a folder called Shell inside the first folder you created. Create another folder inside that called NormalColor. Copy ShellStyle.dll into the NormalColor folder.

  6. Most of the time you will unzip the file and everything will be properly ordered and only need to be copied to your C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ folder.

  7. To install the wallpaper copy the wallpaper image file to your My Pictures folder.

How to Use the XP Theme
  1. While in your My Pictures folder that contains your wallpaper, click on the wallpaper file once to highlight it. In the menu on the left side of the window you will see at the top Picture Tasks. Click on Set as desktop background. You should see the wallpaper on your desktop.

  2. If the wallpaper needs to be stretched to fill the screen close the My Pictures window. Right click on the desktop, select Properties. The Display Properties window comes up, choose the Desktop tab. Your wallpaper should be highlighted in the list, using the Position box choose if you want it Tiled, Centered or Stretched.

  3. While in Display Properties if your theme had a .theme file select the Themes tab and select your theme from the list. If your theme only had a .msstyles file go to the Appearance tab and select your theme from the Windows and Buttons list.

  4. After you are done making your choices you can go to the Themes tab and save your theme by clicking Save As..., and then name it something.

  5. That's all there is to it and all without buying any programs.
