How can I enlarge and/or change the color of fonts in Quicken 2009?

you can not change the font color. you can change the font size only by changing the windows default font size. or the windows screen resolution


to do that go to

control panel / display

under settings tab

you can move the slide switch the higher the resolution the smaller quicken will be and vice versa


if you hit advanced button / under general tab

there is a drop down box for DPI

the larger you make that the larger things in quicken will be


both of these settings effect all of windows however not just quicken. there is no facility to change quicken display directly in quicken

I need an adjustment to Quicken only. The other settings have all been adjusted. I use wide screen monitors and don't want to change the resolution of either of them as they are presently set. I just need the Quicken fonts to be larger and/or darker.

Sorry i did find a way to do that for the register at least


go to edit / preferences

highlight register on the left

there are 2 buttons on the bottom right

font color


clicking either of them will allow you to adjust the fonts and colors respectively
