Can't read small UI text on GIMP 2.10.18

I found a way to increase the size of GIMP's icons, but several passes through the preferences shows no way to increase the UI text size.

On google, I found several ways to address this, but the files they say to edit are not where they indicate they are. Even when I found the file that is named, there is no place to edit font size.

I suspect what I was seeing was old posts about earlier versions of GIMP.

I know I can decrease the screen resolution, but that is a high price to pay.

Is there a way internally or by editing some file on GIMP 2.10.18 to increase the size of the text?

GIMP is installed in the default locations and for all users on my win 10 system. My screen resolution is 2560x1440.

That worked for me. Thank you.

It removes a good deal of stress while using GIMP. No more squinting or magnifying.
