I run Windows XP and I have the most up-to-date Palm Desktop v. 4.1.4. However, my Palm desktop font is so small I can barely read it. I need to make the font larger so it's readable for my eyes. I was advised to click on Tools, then go to preferences and change the font size there. Unfortunately, Windows does not offer this solution. What do I do now?? JIm
Using "regedit" I was able to change the font size larger for use with the Palm Desktop 4.1.4 software and Window XP.
Run "regedit" and export (save) a backup copy for safety File > Export
Search for "FontSmall" Edit > Find > Find what > FontSmall
Click on FontSizeGeneral and change the "Value data" to 16
File > Exit
Run Palm Desktop software and enjoy the new legible font size!
Notes: 1) The location of the Palm Desktop software on my system using "regedit" is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Pilot Desktop\Core * Your location of the Palm Desktop software may differ.
2) I tested this on monitors using resolutions of 1280 x 1024 and 1024 x 768 The font size is noticeably readable and much, much better
3) You may also change the font family from the default (Arial) to another, such as Verdana, etc. FontCard (Changes the font family in the side panels) (FontCard is a regedit value) FontGeneral (Changes the font family for most of the program fonts) (FontGeneral is a regedit value)
4) Operating System: Windows XP Pro Palm Desktop v4.1.4
