Windows 10: IE 11 Menu Bar Text Size Too Small

    IE 11 Menu Bar Text Size Too Small

    User updated to Windows 10. She wants her menu bar text size to be larger. We tried the Tool-Internet Options-Text Size, Control +, and we tried changing the display options. All these do are change the screen items. All we want is for the Menu Bar Text Size to increase. Any other ideas?

    Thank you.

    Using Option One in the tutorial below can help change the text size in menus. However, this will change it for all menus in Windows 10.

    The program wanted to disable the Firewall. I couldn't do that. Thank you.

    In that case, you could use Option Two instead with the .reg files. You may need to try a few different sizes until you find one that looks best for her.

    I would use the scaling method in Windows 10 in the first instance.
    Settings > System > Display > Scale and layout.
    In mine it's 100% or 125% currently. Just upping that to 125% makes a considerable change.
    You can go to Advanced scaling settings for smaller increments/greater range.

    Whilst this maybe IE 11 menus etc now, you get the same problem with other Applications/Web Browsers etc.

    If you fiddle with font sizes you may get stuff cut off and such like, can be tricky.
