Increase GUI size in Netbeans 7


Ever since I upgraded to Netbeans 7, the font size for the GUI (and the icons) are much smaller. Is there any way to increase their size?


This <a href="http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqFontSize" rel="nofollow">wiki page about changing font sizes in NetBeans</a> is the best answer available.


For anyone else experiencing a similar problem in the future. To change the font size of the GUI as originally requested, try the following:

Edit the netbeans.conf file found in the /etc directory of the Netbeans installation directory

Look for netbeans_default_options=" ... "

See if --fontsize is included in between the quotation marks and if so, you should see a size after the --fontsize (ie 12), just change this to another larger number to suit you

If --fontsize is not included in between the quotation marks then add it to the end, just before the closing quotation mark (ie --fontszie 14), using a size that suits you

You will need to experiment with different sizes until you find the one that suits you.


Here you go from Menu - <em>Tools/Options</em> <img alt="Tools/Options" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/y0nXk.png" data-original="https://i.stack.imgur.com/y0nXk.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" />
