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!

[[If you want to increase the size of text on your screen to make it more

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Appearance tab, in Font size, click a new font size.

then double-click Display.
This option enables you to enlarge the fonts used in window headers, icon
