How do I ENLARGE the "System Preferences" window when it shows up on the desktop?   I am a iMac newbee and just pruchased the 27" iMac.  So many questions so little time.  Thanks for any suggestions.    ART

iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)

    The System Preferences window can't be made larger by clicking and dragging a corner (as you've discovered). What you could do is hold down the Control key and stroke up/down on the Magic Mouse to zoom in/out.

    HI Paul,


    Thanks for your response.  How ever your suggestion did not work.  (BUMMER)  The Magic Mouse does zoom in/out on your post.  The ZOOM will not work on any windows opened from the DOCK.  Maybe there is another way?  Not being able to increase the window size is tough on my OLD EYES.  Really appreciate your helping this old timer newbee.
