I find (with age) that the lettering of the descriptions under the Desktop
Icons is getting smaller and smaller.
How do I enlarge the lettering?
I tried Screen Properties but there is nothing there and enlarging the Icons
did not enlarge the lettering! Thank you all!

    From XP HELP...

    [[If you want to increase the size of text on your screen to make it more
    readable, use Font size on the Appearance tab in Display Properties.

    Open Display in Control Panel.
    On the Appearance tab, in Font size, click a new font size.
    Notes
    To open Display, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and
    then double-click Display.
    This option enables you to enlarge the fonts used in window headers, icon
    labels, and menus. For information about enlarging all items on your screen,
    click Related Topics.
    The font size options are based on the current theme, visual style, and
    color scheme. For some themes, styles, or schemes, you may only have one
    font size option. ]]

    To increase or decrease the size of objects and text on your screen
    [[To open Display, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and
    then double-click Display.
    On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
    On the General tab, in the DPI setting list, click the dots per inch (dpi)
    setting you want to use.
    If you choose Other in the DPI setting list, you can set custom options in
    the Custom DPI Setting dialog box either by selecting one of the percentage
    options in the drop-down list or by clicking on the ruler and dragging the
    pointer to specify a setting.
    Restart your computer when prompted. ]]
