In Win7 how do I change the 2/3 character to something smaller. In
WinXP it was listed in Character Map and was easy to change but not in
Win7, I see.

See replies to your same post submitted all of 48 minutes earlier. You
might want to explain just what is a two-thirds character. I have no
such font listed in Windows XP. Also, Character Map merely let you
select a font, not somehow modify it and replace the .fon file. Under
Windows XP and using Character Map, you picked a character from the
selected font family. It didn't let you modify the font.

You want some font to be smaller WHERE?

See if this helps:

Right-click on your desktop;
Choose Personalize;
Click on Display (lower left corner);
Click Set custom text size (DPI)

All the patience of a boiling teakettle, I see.

Please wait a reasonable time (days, not minutes) before re-
submitting a query. This isn't instant messaging.

I wanted to change 2/3 to one character not three but if all you
people(?) can think of to do is harp about me changing my wording in 48
minutes (I would have sworn I waited at least 48.617 minutes) then
forget the whole damned thing.

The 2/3 character is on the Character Map at unicode 2154.

Is that what you mean?

If not, just explain what you are trying to achieve.

Open your Character map and under Group By: choose Unicode Subrange from
that menu,then in the Group By window that pops up choose Number Forms.
You'll find â…” under that listing.

Character Map, Advanced view, Group by: Unicode Subrange, Number forms = â…”,
â…ž...

â…” In the Arial typeface, from the Windows character map. Looks good as I
type this.

If what the OP wants is a smaller version, it may work in a word processing
application, where individual characters can be sized or rendered in
different typefaces. Perhaps a super- or sub-script.
Okay, gotcha. The subject said "2/3 font or character". I focused on
the "font" and wondered who would've named their font by that name. The
â…” character might not display correctly here so I'll refer to it
hereafter as the two-thirds character (not available in all fonts).

Haven't a clue why the OP can't figure out in whatever word processor or
editor he is using on how to change the size of characters in his
document. In the OP's response, only then do we find out it has nothing
to do with the font size or the two-thirds character but instead in
automatic text formating in the previously undentified word process to
convert a *string* of characters to one character; i.e., to change the
string "2/3" with 3 characters to the two-thirds single character.

Amazing how many posters think we're standing behind them looking over
their shoulder to see at what they're pointing. It never even dawns on
them that they're asking for remote help and that details might be very
important.

Character Map in Win7 is identical to Character map in XP. Why do you
consistently say such things when they are obviously not true?

How did you know about that?
I didn't. I just peeked and poked and found it. Since XP it seems Microsoft
has gone out of their way to bury configuration settings so deep that most
people can't find them. Ever try to change your Keyboard Language?

Only after Rot-13 failed did I realize what you'd done here.

Hogy vagy?

(STOP! Go no further - the above is 1/4 of my vocabulary!)

With the help of a dictionary and no knowledge of grammar, I'm guessing
"Best forget the whole thing. The whole time will be lost work. It
doesn't work as well in Windows 7 as in XP."

Later I remembered tranlate.google.com and got this:
"Best forgotten, believe me. The whole thing is just wasting time. Win7
not working than in XP".

Geez. I think I did better than 'they' did :)
