Dear all,

Im a MAc newbie using macbook air m1(ventura 13.1.2) with external monitor(29inch) set up.

My issue is that I cannot increase font size of things like file,edit,view on top neither the downloads bar when in chrome as marked in pic.

However I know cmd and + will increase inside window font size but even in that case these tabs like file,edit view remians tiny on the large monitor.

Please advise on how I can increase the font size of these.

I believe it is under system settings, accessibility, menu bar size, requires a reboot so I did not change mine to verify.

I didn't know about this setting for the Menu Bar. However, mine is set to Large as well, and I don't see any difference in the size from previous versions of macOS.

macOS doesn't have many scaling options beyond full screen indirect rendering. You can't, say, choose the (font) size for the menu bar, which is quite poor seeing as the Amiga could do it in the early 1990s.
