Changing the font in Taskbar?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

How do I change the font size in the Taskbar?

I just got a 19" LCD and am running it in its native resolution (1280 x
1024) but find that the font size in the Taskbar is extremely small.
Thus far I have been able to locate where to change other desktop
elements, such as menu bar size, fonts, boxes, etc., including those
that control all Win XP apps, like Word, Quicken, browsers. However, I
have had no luck finding where the font size control is for the Taskbar.
Anyone?

    Hello Paul

    Try this, it will actually make all your text bigger and easier to read, but
    see if you like it.
    Right click on the desktop, go to properties, click the Settings tab, then
    click the advanced button. Under the general tab you see a drop down menu
    that says "Normal size (96DPI)" change that to Large size (120DPI). Click
    apply and see how you like it. Or you can always click customize and make a
    size somewhere in-between.
