how can i change the font size in the menu bar
(when using high resolution displays the menu bar is quite small)

powerbook pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 2,6GHz, 4GB RAM

    In short, you can't. I think you could hack it but you would be asking for a lot of trouble. The menu bar is only 26 pixels high, so you really can't go with a font size any bigger.

    Sorry, just have to vent (and did to features request). This seems like it should be a pretty basic preference setting. I've been trying to figure this out since switching from PC in December. Thanks - at least your post allows me to stop looking.

    The only other thing I miss is being able to resize a window from any corner or side as opposed to just the bottom right. The spaces feature makes up for it most of the time, but when I'm plugged into a larger monitor it would still be nice.

    Hello gtstange!

    It is possible. You had to use the Freeware Tinkertool (not TinkerTool System which is not free).
    With this tool you are able to chenage the fonts and tweak also the size.

    I don't think TinkerTool can change the menu bar font or size, & even if it could it would be hard to to overcome the problems of too vertically large a font size to fit.
