    Default Text size help. please help. probably really easy

    I have a major problem. the text size is like 6 or 8 pt font and I can't read it. I'm trying to run a downloaded exe program which uses the jre7 which I had to download beforehand. the font size stays at 6 or 8 even if I try to change it in windows settings. it's a high res monitor on a lenovo yoga laptop. is there a way for me to edit the java code and manually change the font size?

    The Font class can be used to change the font size of text that is drawn in the paint method. Is that what you are asking about?

    Can you post the code that is drawing the Strings with the small font?
