How to configure Dell 15" UXGA laptop screen to larger text size?

    Hi all!

    I just got an Inspiron 5150 from Dell, it has a 15' UXGA (1600x1200)
    screen. Running it at a non-native resolution makes it look bad but
    running it at full resolution makes everything too small on the
    screen. I am running Windows XP on it and I do know of the font size
    "normal, large, extra large" setting in screen properties panel. The
    problem is that it really only increases text on the desktop and not
    in every program menu. is there some sort of a screen profile for
    dells with their huge screen resolution???


    Thanks

    Right click on the desktop, choose 'Properties', then the
    'Appearance' tab. Press the 'Advanced' button and
    set each 'Item' to the size, colour, etc. that you want.
