Hey Guys,

I have been searching and I still cannot find out how to increase the title bar font sizes. Coming from XP it is located in the appearance preferences; all you need to do is click on what you want to increase/decrease and chose the size, from text to title bars to the buttons. I hope someone can point me in the right direction! Sorry for begin a Newbie!

When you say title bar, I assume you mean the menu bar across the top of your screen? I don't think OS X gives you a way to adjust that - it is part of the Mac "look and feel" and they want you to stay with it.

There are a number of third party "tweaking" tools that might help. Can anyone say if something like TinkerTool might allow modifications to this font?

Yes, Tinker tool will allow you to do this

Edit: I just tried it and can't alter the menu bar font

Hi, speaking of font sizes, when opening a new web page the text is always tiny. It can be enlarged with the 'view' option but the next time something is opened the text is small again. This is no huge problem but a bit annoying. Is it possible to save the setting of having a larger text size? Thanks for any help

"Assuming" you're in Safari - open Preferences / Appearance tab

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
