    Within a browser you can adjust text size in view (zoom).

    I think that he's referring to the size of text on his desktop icons.

    I won't be on a Win 7 machine until later to confirm but on XP this is how to do it (Win 7 should be similar):

    Right click somewhere on your desktop and select Properties on the popup.
    Select the Appearance tab
    Select the Advanced button
    Select the Icon selection from the Item dropdown box on the Advanced Appearance popup
    Set your font settings to whatever you want.

    Windows 7 is a bit different.

    Right click somewhere on your desktop and select Personalize on the popup.
    Near the bottom left, select Display.
    On the next page, select "Set custom text size".
