Changing font size without mouse wheels...

#1
I am partially blind, and I can only function on the computer by using the "magnify" application (Start Menu/Programs/Accessories/Accessibility/Magnify). However, the rather limited view it has of the TCC window is a bit of a problem. Ideally, I would like to increase the font size in the TCC window - and I found instructions for how to do this in the "help" file. However, it was not too useful because changing the size of the font seems to require using the computer's "mouse wheel(s?)". But this a laptop and it doesn't have mouse wheel(s). Is there any alternative way to change the TCC font size???

If you use TCC in a TCMD tab, use TCMD Options -> Configure TCMD -> Tabs ->
Font -> Size. For TCC in its own window you can do it using its "system
menu" -> Properties -> Font -> Size. For both situations you can do
everything with the keyboard, using accelerator, Tab, backspace and arrow
keys to make your selections, without even using the "pointing device",
which on recent laptops is usually the scratch pad.

BTW, I also have some visibility problems, and created desktop icons to
change screen resolution from crudest (640x480) to highest (1280x1024 on my
system). Each resolution has its own hotkey for instant activation. All use
the freeware program Qres.exe (available from SourceForge.net and others) to
do the work. I created the desktop icons using the SHORTCUT command. I use
different screen resolutions depending on what I do. Many of my batch files,
which start interactive work, set the screen size according to what I found
most convenient for the particular task. This generally avoids the need to
use Magnify.
