Screen Saver Text Font: Can I make it BIG?


F

Fred 2002

I would like to create a custom text screen saver with HUGE font that can be
seen from across the room. When I tried to do this, by right-clicking on the
desktop and selecting properties, the screen saver tab, the 3D text option,
the settings button and finally the choose font button, I am given the
choice of many fonts but no way to size them. Is there any way around this,
or is that just the way it is? I am running XP Home. Thanks in advance!

Use the Marque screensaver or slide the Size slider in 3D Text.

I have the slider at max already: still too small. The Marquee is better:
thanks! I would still like it larger than the Marquee maximum, though, if
there's another way.

Use the Marque screensaver or slide the Size slider in 3D Text.

Thanks! I have not made any Registry changes yet. Might as well get my feet
wet!

Can you also use the Marque screensaver to make the 3D text screen saver fonts large in Windows 7 Ultimate as well? If so what is the path for that in the Registry? Thanks.
