RE: Option Inspector Window Font Size

That's not it, the DPI on my notebook is already set to 144 (150% normal

Incidentally, changing DPI has no influence on the Option Inspector window
font size; I think the font size is specified in screen pixels. 

The same occurs with many HTML documents, the fonts are specified in pixels
"px"; Mathematica web is the best example, just look at the;p=css2003/;v=en

style sheet, every measure is in "px".

They are probably relying on some standard windows library to draw the
interface (except the contents of notebooks, of course). Most of your
windows programs have unacceptably small fonts in the menus. If that's
true, you are going to need to adjust the DPI Windows thinks your
screen is running at.
