How can I change the font size on this computer?
I have gone to universal access under system preference, but there is no where to enlarge the type.
It is too small for my liking

mac book pro 17', Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    Click on the Desktop and on the top menu bar select View/Show View Options

    In the window that opens use the selector to increase the Font size up to 16 Point

    Two Options More.

    1. Lets say you have safari open and you want a bigger font - Press the apple sign and + to increase font size or apple and minus to decrease. You can do this for any application that your using.

    2. Click on the MacHD icon on the desktop. Click the settings icon on the top of the finder window and go to "Choose View Options" Change font inside to 16pt and then click the "Use as Defaults" button at the bottom.

    Hope this helps.
