    Hey ppl i was tiped off today that the windows DPI Settings should work with Classic client, and they sure do.

    keep in mind this will make your windows elements substantially bigger also and not only CC.

    Here is a quick run down, (guide was made in Windows 7, it might differ slightly for WinVista and alot for WinXP)

    Step 1:
    Right click desktop any where there isnt anything else. and select Screen resolution.

    Step 2:
    Below display settings theres a link to make text larger or smaller, this is what affects the cc also other wise know as DPI.

    If you want to use the default setting of 150% for all of windows you can skip step 3 and 4, and just select the 150% standard option.

    NOTE: the 125% enhancement does not affect Classic Client in any way.

    Need to Log off windows and back in to take effect!!

    Step 3:
    Select custom DPI. if you are still reading.

    Step 4:
    134% is the limit to where Classic client becomes 1.5 times it's regular size. anything less and it will be normal size.


    Hope the guide is useful for some :)
