I've been using Ccleaner for years, and I appreciate the program. 

I would LOVE to have an accessibility feature that allows the user to enlarge fonts. I'm in my 60s. My 22" monitor is about 3 feet from my eyes. I need a customizable larger fonts option.

Thanks!

That link has been there for ages but isn't really ideal for people struggling with small text size in a program.

It's all to do with Windows screwed up scaling which lets be very honest in 2020 is a complete pain in the ass in Windows 10 (wasn't as annoying back in the WinXP era) since programs are all over the place with how they're displayed. Increase the scaling and some programs will be more legible but then some will run off screen like 7-Zip, Samsung Magician, etc., which isn't really ideal since programs that already look ok will also get changed.

It's been a very long time since I've seen a program where you can effectively change the font size inside it and not have to mess around with any Windows scaling or resolution, and most that have had the feature at some point eventually take it away removing it.

Seriously need a way to adjust the font size inside the CC program!  No I'm not going to screw around with Win 10 scaling as I'm a web designer and need everything to look like it will be seen by default settings.  It really shouldn't be that difficult.  I agree with Dmorrow that as we age we just don't see as well, even with glasses. 

If you can't give us a way to set the size of the font we want than at least give us a way to zoom within the program.

There's always Resource Hacker (http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/) to "try to increase the fonts" in programs that will allow it (many don't). In some programs it's easy, it's literally changing for instance the font type size from for example 10 to 12, but it can screw up any dialog boxes a program may have and it's only useful for very old programs that don't get updated frequently or for those which are abandon-ware. It isn't worth even trying with CCleaner being that it's digitally signed and will probably cause antivirus to think it's malware, and since CCleaner gets updated too frequently.
