    Font size for selected programs

    Is there a way to change the font size on selected programs?
    I already have my font set at custom scale 144 DPI.
    Two programs that I use have extremely small font for my senior eyes.
    Secunia PSI and AVG PC Tuneup. Ctrl + - and Ctrl mouse wheel do not change the font on these programs.
    If I increase the font above 144 it will be too large for other applications.

    Hello, i found a couple of things for you, one is a hotkey that you have to set up . Look at this : ScreenMagnifier

    Then , if that is not good for you, i have another idea . Maybe a screen attachment to use , magnifier. These cost money, and i do not endorse the products and do not want to appear to be spamming . but, i did google that and saw several that might work. Just a thought.

    I almost forgot. In windows , start, accessories, in the ease of access, is a magnifier program built in. check it out, i find this the easiest way.
