Reduce font size

I have a client that needs to reduce the font size on her windows 7 computer to 75%. On XP she was able to do this but on Windows 7 it seems to only be 100% or larger. Any ideas how to reduce font size?

Change the screen resolution to a higher setting and it will make the font smaller visibly. Windows 7 only allows for enlarging the text by default.

You can adjust various fonts this way:  go to Personalization in Control Panel -> click on the icon for Window Color at the bottom of the display window -> in the next window, click on Advanced Appearance Settings -> in the Window Color and Appearance, use the scroll down arrow to select the various Items that have a font associated with them (such as Active Title Bar, Inactive Title Bar, Menu, Message Box, Palette Title, Selected Items, Tooltip) and then click to select a different size.

Thanks everyone. I was hoping there was a way like in the past but apparently in our environment anyway there isn't. The set custom text size also only goes bigger. We'l have to just reduce screen resolution. Thank you all!

Both solutions will work. I awarded more points to the solution we actually used.
