Finder Sidebar in Snow Leopard

Post by Bob Wiswell » Wed Dec 16, 2015 2:20 pm

Is there a way to increase the size of the folder titles (font size) in the Finder Sidebar for OS 10.6, Snow Leopard; not the icons/font in the window of the finder, but the sidebar on the left side of the screen?

I know this could be done in Mavericks (10.9) via system preferences>general etc. I have not been able to find a method for 10.6.

I don't see anything new since this topic came up in 2013. http://www.straitmac.org/phpBB3/viewtop ... f=5&t=1242


You might do some googling and see if you can hack the system fonts, but that might be dicey. Alternatives are to change the monitor resolution or use the Zoom feature.

Wow. Did I ever forget about that post! So I give up-I can't change the size. I did do a recent Google search and I found nothing that goes back to 10.6.
