    If my display is set to 1680 X 1050, how can I increase my font size, like on my the top toolbar (finder, file, edit, view etc)? When I drop my display size down, my fonts become less clear. Also, when using using MS Word I have to increase my font size to 16. So when I send in my homework my font size is so big that the instructor always write back and tells me to use a font size of 12.

    You can use Silk from Unsanity to alter menu and dialog fonts. It's not perfect because OS X doesn't really support that kind of thing, but in practice it works pretty well.

    Apple claim to be working on resolution independence for a future OS X release, but they've been promising that for 15 years...

    For Word, why not simply use the zoom thing in the toolbar?

    One thing: with Word, just increase the magnification of the document, so you won't need to increase the actual font size. Either do this via "View->Zoom..." or just find the little magnification item in the toolbar - right next to the Help icon, I think, by default.

    Edit: too slow... ;)
