WINDOWS EXPLORER – Is there a Zoom-In to enlarge font size?

I use Windows 7.

I can zoom in to MS WORD to make characters larger.

I can zoom in to Internet Explorer to make things bigger.

Is there a way to do the equivalent in Windows Explorer;

What used to be known as File Manager many moons ago?

    You can decrease the screen resolution, this means less will fit on the screen, but everything will be bigger. You can also increase the text size, but that will seriously mess up the layouts of some programs. To do that, press the windows key, then type "font". The search should show a Control Panel item called "make text and other items larger or smaller". Use that to increase to 125% or 150%.

      Thanks. Btw, Windows 7 requires you to restart your computer in order for the 125% to be applied.

    Yep, press the Windows key and + together. That opens the Magnify facility. For some reason the Ctrl and mouse wheel or Ctrl and + don t do it.

    Press and hold Ctrl and turn the mouse wheel
