You need to chooseClassic Theme from Personalization screen for that kind of look by the way I like to get Fonts inBlue/yellow contrasting colors in Start menu as well as Desktop's Taskbar and Notification Area for my eyes.
Right- click on a blank spot on Desktop
Click Personalize from drop- down context menu
From the box under Change the visuals and sounds on your computerscroll down toWindows Classicand click
Now you will get the familiar dialog boxsimilar toAppearance> AdvancedinWindows XP
This seems incorrect to me. You do not need to disable Aero to fine-tune icons and system font sizes.
Go to Display > Personalization > Window Color (In Aero, this is the little, colored, square icon between "Desktop Background" and "Sounds.") > Advanced Appearance Settings...
This will give you the traditional display settings adjustment window that you (and I) are used to and love. Personally, I also went this route. I hate that the DPI switcher makes my high resolution look fuzzy everywhere... I mean, what's the point of having a high resolution if your screen doesn't look, well, high res?
Keep in mind, however, that other text sizes, like the size of the text in your browser's tabbies, will not change. It also doesn't seem to work too well when you adjust button size or scrollbar. I recommend using a combination of DPI switcher and custom settings if you need those fonts to be larger too... or maybe someone has developed a plugin for that on whatever browser you use.
