    Begin by right-clicking on the Desktop, and choosing Properties, then
    Appearance. You will see the Item: scrollable box, where various Windows
    objects are itemized, and the Font: box, where various installed fonts are
    available, and the Size" box, for the available font sizes. Choose a larger
    size for the several Windows objects exhibiting the small size now.

    What happens when you change the test size with IE-View-Text Size?

    If i change from the browser TextSize->Medium is default. I set to larger,
    increasing a bit only. But previously it was medium and i can able to print
    and see exact size what i specified.

    Not only in browser, all windows has the same problem.

    thanx

    "All windows" is a bit broad but have you tried changing the Item:Icon
    in Control Panel-Display-Appearance tab? ("Icon" controls much of the
    windows text as well as the text under icons.
