    text size in PE11

      I am finding the text in PE11 a bit on the small size ( file, edit and the drop downs etc) is there away of increasing it?  I am running 8.1

          You MAY be able to do something in Windows


          Right click on any open area of your desktop and select Screen Resolution at the bottom of the pop up window, and select the option to change text

            Under Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Display, you can click on "Make text and other items larger or smaller".

            Make sure that there is a check mark next to "Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays." in order to see the options

            for Smallerr 100% and Medium 125%. Try the 125% instead of 100%.

              Hi guys


              Many thanks for your reply's, they were very helpful.


              I have managed to change the settings to 125% and that has helped with the drop down lists but the headings are still a bit small.  If I increase it more I loose a lot of the scream shot.


              I have installed the magnifier and set it to PE 11,as it follows the pointer, just pressing the windows button and the + or - button together Increasing or decreasing the area together helps.


              thanks again
