I realize this isn't the same thing as changing Settings, but what's the difference?
Should I use that instead?

Often when I find the text (on a web page, say) too small for my eyes, I just hit Cmd-plus. One other little trick that is sometimes useful: one can zoom in the contents of the screen: just keep the control key down and use any "scroll up" method (I use two fingers on the trackpad; someone with a mouse may use the little scroll ball for the same effect); then just do ctrl-scroll down to get back to normal size. One can set this in the Trackpad (or mouse) area in System Preferences.
Also, lots of different possibilities exist under "Universal Access" - including something I just found out: you can use a larger cursor, if needed.

I can’t believe Apple still hasn’t built this into Mac OS,. Does anyone know if there is some 3rd party software that can do this on a Mac?
People who find the DPI too high on the 17” Macbook Pro would love this ability.
