    hi,

    i use windows xp and osx on a regular basis and i find the visual appearance totally different. i have a 1650*1050 resolution screen and when switching between the two os i find it weird sometimes.

    i find the icons and fonts and general desktop on xp small and sharp while on osx i find it big and bold.

    is there a way in osx to make things smaller such as icons/fonts etc

    thanks,

    From finder, go to View --> Show View Options. You can select the icon and text size here.

    Also look in System Preferences for your Font Smoothing option. Search for it... don't remember the section. :eek:

    Font smoothing is under the appearance pref pane.

    Ah that's good to know. Set mine a while ago and couldn't remember. And seeing as I wasn't doing anything, I was too busy to look. ;) :D
