Increase font size on mac toolbar

Your response to the OP's inquiry reveals seems insensitive to the need here -- that being an accessibility issue. If you are unable to offer assistance with regard to a legitimate need for a member of the user community, I would suggest you either enrich your own knowledge of the issue if you are motivated to respond , or simply pass over the discussion, as opposed to attempting to shame a person whose vision requirements necessitate an accessibility question.

Indeed, the menu bar, for exactly the same reasons as the tool bar, DOES need a scalability option, for exactly the same reason: Page content loaded. Oct 18, Correct it is, but it won't work in the menubar. The size can only be changed by decreasing the screen's resolution or using features in the Accessibility preferences. Apple has entirely turned their backs on anyone without perfect vision? Rather cruel of them. I checked the Accessibility features but do not see one that addresses text size readability. Have I missed something? Apple has never provided a way of increasing the menubar font of OS X.

It's always been that way. Perhaps you should try thinking about reasons why it's a bad idea to change it. Mar 1, 6: Hold the option key and choose one of the optional resolutions. See if one is more usable for you. Everything will change however. Mar 11, 6: The default is set to "Default for Display". Click Scaled and choose a lower resolution. Jul 29, 5: Sep 15, 5: Ive should be kept as far away as possible wrt to user interface design. I consider him vastly inferior to Frog Design for basic industrial design, let alone, a user interface.

How to Increase All System Font Size in Mac OS X

There was a good reason for skeuomorphism. Amen to this thread. This low contrast of the post-Mavericks UI is a serious problem for people with just normal variations in vision, let alone folks with almost any kind of eye problem. With each OS update, it just gets worse.

He just stand back and looks at how pretty the hardware is. The Apple TV gen 4 aluminum slab remote is another one of his masterpieces of form over function. But at least it does not give you glaucoma…. I am no font designer but it seems that not only the size but the darkness contrast? I am not the only Mac user who would like a truly black font. Bring back Chicago!

Sorry but this headline is more or less bs. Otherwise you could also claim that the magnifier is a tool to increase the system font size. I agree that there should be a way to directly increase system fonts without adjusting resolution, but this is the solution offered by Apple, and in the display prefs if you want to have bigger font sizes visible in Mac OS X. NOT the first time Apple has done that.

Bold and larger fonts are easier on the eyes, the micro fonts are hard to read on mac. Also the tiny fonts are not black they are about 60 percent gray. Steve Jobs would never have allowed this to happen.

I agree, the font readability and visibility is terrible on Mac and Apple does not seem to care. Reading the Mac screen gives me a headache. Using a smaller resolution is the only option for the tiny system fonts, it makes them bigger but makes everything else bigger too. You Apple do want me to buy stuff, right? And sure, changing the resolution makes it bigger, but text in every other app looks jagged and terrible. It is OLD technology. Restricting menu font scaling is stupid. Our eyes are getting old squinting at your microscopic fonts.

I just bought my 75 year old mother a Macbook pro with a 17 inch screen, the largest available on a Macbook. Total BS. All hail Microsoft! Its actually perfect for everything for my struggling eyes. When Windows users mention resolution, they are talking about ppi ratio pixel count per area , while this screen setting refers only to the relative size of all the content. I use my Mac as a Plex media server and player, which means I have my Mac hooked to a TV and therefore I want to keep the resolution at so I can watch hi-def videos.

This is not rocket science.

How to make a browser's toolbar text larger

Do you really want me to go back to Microsoft?? Thanks, never got round to finding how to make the font larger just accepted the original setup….. I agree with Chris. Mac has become tyrannical and deaf to the needs of its users. It leads to the loss of much loved features when it forces newer OIS upgrades. The tiny, fixed font size is a good example. I wish I could either have stayed with my old OIS or had a choice of font size and screensaver options. I think Apple wants to force us to move to is smaller devices and anorexic laptops which cannot be opened.

I just bought the Macbook Air. Switched from Windows. I have to use reading glasses to read the text, and push my nose almost on the screen to comfortably read the text. I realize the whole deal is new to anyone switching, but for crying out loud this is I was just asked by my 72 year old ex to increase only the font size on his iMAC, which I encouraged him to buy for the Retina display.

Now, three hours later, I am reading this thread and shocked that Apple has not offered an option to change font size system wide without sacrificing the Retina display benefits.

What a thoughtless bunch they must be. Apple, consult those with disabilities to fine tune your system rather than discriminating against them. Maybe if a few million people complain they will do something about it. It is pretty simple. None of the sreen shots in this article match what I see on my mac: I ran an OS update recently.

Ask Question. Tetsujin, more than a duplicate, it tried to be a refinement notice that this one refers to that or a continuation on a slightly different bias. Nevertheless, if you think it would be better placed under that older question , please, move it there! You mean the menu bar?

There is actually an easy fix for this, as it turns out.

Heck of a first answer - Thanks! I changed the text size to the largest one and now I can read on my 27" screen without risking my eyesight or bumping my head on the monitor. BTW, as you said, it works on the display as a whole all the text is affected by the change. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Sign up using Email and Password.
