Can I make my menu bar fonts larger?

is there a way to increase the size of the menu bar (mainly the type size)? I have a new large display, but the menu items are tiny.

An age-old question. Apple has not built in a way to do this, but that's when 3rd parties come to the rescue. I have used TinkerTool for a long time to do things like this, and a whole bunch more. It's free, and while it's a use-at-your-own-risk product, I have never had any trouble with it. You can always ask it to revert to the system defaults:


Why are my safari fonts all whacked?

Try turning off Suitcase or whatever font management you use, and reload the page. Then, if that works, reopen Suitcase and start disabling fonts. There may be a font, such as Helvetica Fractions, that is confusing Safari.

If that doesn’t work, you might need to scout ~/Library/Fonts for unnecessary stuff, or clean your “font caches,” either manually, or with a tool like Maintenance.
