Perhaps this will also be of help to you with your moniter set to 1024 x
I increased the Windows font size for my Vista laptop to help prevent
eyestrain. This can also be done oin XP altough XP gives less choices
My 15 in. monitor is set for 1280 x 800.
Right click on the Desktop and chose Personalize
Under Tasks, click on Adjust font size (DPI)
If the User Account Control screen pops up, click Continue
On the DPI Scalling screen, select Larger scale (120 DPI)
I could have also customized the font size and made it larger but 120
DPA works perfectly for me on this monitor.
The Magnifier can still be used if needed.
In RM 3.2.6, I shrunk all the expandable screens to their smallest size
so I can see parts of the screen behind them.
I may or may not need to make adjustments to the Windows font size for RM4.

I am using a 17in monitor with my settings set at 800 x 600 pixels so
I can see whatever is on the screen. A lot of web pages I go to is so
wide, I have to scroll across to see everything. I try to avoid those
pages if possible.
From what I have seen of RM 4, it looks like some of those windows
are so wide that a person will have to scroll across it to see
everything. I would like to know if that is likely before I purchase
the program. I have tried changing my settings to 1024 x 768 and
everything is so small, I cannot see it even with maginifying glasses
on. I can change the font size on some things but on RM 3 explorer, I
could not find anywhere to change the font.
