How do you operate the computer then? I'm simply being curious.

As predicted... It's a bit like "my dog ate my homework", only different.

Please stop wasting our time. It's no longer amusing.

I have to magnify the Arial fonts to size 18 on most of the applications to avoid the typo errors. Good thing the new age monitors are large enough with plenty of pixels to fit in the entire document.

Aren't the threads in the "Extra Stuff" and "Other Stuff" sections optional for you to read?

If you are using windows, get/use a 2nd screen and use it as magnifier for your 1st screen using windows built-in magnifier. In my case, I’m just to lazy. I like to lounge across the room and operate my computers. I’m sure it will work for you.
As for the trolls, feeding them makes them come back for more. Just ignore him and he will go away.

ETA BTW, I know someone else with similar vision issues as yours on another forum. He is one of the smartest people I have ever encountered online.

I think you finally understand why I frequently type the wrong numbers or misspell the words if the applications didn't catch them in time.

I already received my new monitor which is 2560x1440 pixels, so there are more space to adjust the settings for ease of access.

I should have probably grayed out the grand total price on that attached screenshot too. I thought that was only a regular PC from Ben Delo's perspective, maybe it's too expensive for some others.
