how to change font size under icon in windows 8

We have Windows 8 Pro and would like to change the font size under the icons to a bigger size. In Windows XP and Vista this was easily done by choosing Windows colors and appearance and choosing icons.

We would like an easy solution to this problem.

Hi James

 

1. Right Click the Desktop and select Screen Resolution.

 

2. Click the Make text and other items larger or smaller link.

 

3. In the Change only the text size section click the drop down menu to select the items you want to change.

This changes the ICON and Text for the same size , I want to change ONLY THE TEXT under the ICON not both. I need to make the text under the icon larger, I don't want to enlarge the icon.  You were able to do this in XP and Vista.

Hi James

 

I tried this on several different Windows 8 systems and it appears to be working correctly.

 

Here are a couple of screenshots.

I'm not sure why it would not be working for you?
