    Bigger, Darker Fonts

    BIGGER, DARKER FONTS

    Hola, hello, hi everyone... My first time here so a bit rough around the edges.

    I need bigger, darker fonts. I don't use magnifier because it is too distracting and cumbersome to use.

    I am willing to use custom scaling but the introductory paragraph on the custom scaling screen informs us it is not recommended, warning us about all sorts of (seemingly) insurmountable nightmarish problems we are likely to encounter.Right
    now have set custom scaling at 100. Barely legible. Perhaps if it were darker it would work for me.

    I have not attempted a larger custom scaling setting (e.g., 125 or 150) for fear of precipitating doomsday as I interpret the warning mentioned above.

    My specific questions/remarks are:

    • Is there a way to get bigger, darker font without altering anything else like we were able to do on Windows 8?
    • Does custom scaling alter the way things are displayed when using browsers like Google Chrome and Firefox?
    • Any ideas, comments, suggestions, alternatives, or any whatevers will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Aída

    double post (sorry) but another good way is to sort it by FSB, so that people can look to the top of the list to see the best OC'er in each category.


    possibly sort it out by core type as well?

    Kentsfield (B-3 stepping)
    Kentsfield (g0 stepping)
    Conroe
    Conroe 1333 FSB (e6x50 line)
    Allendale (2M 800FSB)


    its an idea, but the list is somewhat short at the moment so it may be pointless til it gets bigger.
