Monitor 4K
« on: October 14, 2016, 10:31:50 am »

I am running Peppermint 7 on Lenovo 700ish 27". I am desperate: how can I set up bigger icons, bigger texts and fonts, and bigger apps menus? It's impossible to me to use the Pc: everything is so small. I managed just to increase fonts size in small number of applications but nothing really important to me.

Could you be so kind to help me?

Click on the menu icon in the bottom left corner, then Preferences, then Customise Look and Feel.

In the first tab (Widgets) you can increase the size of the system font to whatever you like, then click Apply. You may have to log out and in again to see the results in any programs that are already running.

Optional: Right-click on the menu button area and go to Panel > Panel preferences. You can change the size of the panel if it's not right on the big screen.

Does that fix most of your issues?
