My old eyes are getting tired. Is it possible to change the font size on BOINC?

Good question - initially it seems no but you could try digging into your screen acheme personlisation & adjusting individual elements like icon & tooltip properties.

I don't think there is. I looked briefly last night and didn't see anything like that.

You could, of course, modify the source code and build a version that uses larger fonts, but I don't recommend it.

What I do recommend is bringing this up on the BOINC forums. Don't forget that SETI@Home started in the late '90s and therefore many of the SETI developers and also many of the BOINC developers are almost 20 years older than when they started this, so I can pretty much guarantee yours aren't the only old eyes dealing with this problem!

It might be a feature they would build into a future release.

You can increase overall page size or just Font size if you're running Firefox. Click on view then zoom. Then either Zoom In or Zoom Text Only. Just in case you needed know that as well.

NeoMetal that sounds like for the browser, think the OP wants to adjust Manager itself.

Try Control Panel > Personalisation & click Window Colour at bottom which should bring up the old-style window element dialog "Window Color And Appearance". Try adjusting icon and/or tooltip font sizes.

Hmm I've had no luck there tbh - try therefore under Display & adjust the zoom %, although this is global (change this & everyone's computers around the world change (not really)).

I went to Boinc and submitted this question per Michael's suggestion. If I get an affirmative reply I will post it here.
