Make Address Bar Text Bigger

When your display is set to a high resolution, reading the text in Internet Explorer's Address Bar may be difficult. The Address Bar uses the same font as the icon titles on the desktop, which can be changed through Display Properties. Right-click on the desktop and choose 'Properties' and select the 'Appearance' tab. If you're running Windows XP, click on the 'Advanced' button. In the pull-down 'Item' list, select 'Icon'. Choose a more readable font and click on Apply. If the icon titles are now truncated, change 'Icon Spacing' (Horizontal) and Icon Spacing (Vertical) to larger values.
