How can I make the font bigger on the windows taskbar

Hello, I want to make the font in (what I think is called) Windows Taskbar bigger.  I assume the taskbar itself would also become bigger because of the "taller" font -- no problem with that.

Please look at the attached screen capture. I want to make the font bigger.  This is for windows xp, but I assume the "fix" would be similar to windows7....

Thanks!

Hi  marahman3001

I realize now that "bar" is from WIndows 7.  Where can I do the same in Window 7.

Thanks

Hi,  Michael-BestP

Open in new window


It's on a computer that has both xp and windows 7.  (Running virtual machines) The top  bar turned out to be the overall windows 7 "bar".  I thought it was an  xp.  I will look at your links.

Thanks!
