This is an old hint used by the hackintosh netbook crowd. I love the 11.6 but late at night my astigmatism can make the small text hard to read. Fortunately, it is easy to change the scaling on a global and per application basis in OSX. open Terminal and enter the following command: defaults write NSGlobalDomain AppleDisplayScaleFactor 1.2 To set it back enter defaults write NSGlobalDomain AppleDisplayScaleFactor 1 To see what the current scaling is enter: defaults read NSGlobalDomain AppleDisplayScaleFactor You can also apply scaling on a per app basis. But first you need to find the programs preference file. For iTunes you would enter: defaults write com.apple.iTunes AppleDisplayScaleFactor 1.2 Some users have noted issues during startup with scaling not at 100% so use at your own risk.
