    Changing Font Size of Edge Favorites Bar.


    Win 10 Build18363.900

    I have been wrestling with this problem for a while on my way to Edge.

    The example below show Edge, Firefox and a part of the desktop. Please note then size of the fonts in the appropriate browser. The font there in Edge's Favorites bar is too small for me to read comfortably while Firefox's equvalent has been adjusted to a comfortable size. Is there a way to change Edge's Favorite bar so I can read it without having the change affect other areas of the system. Surely there must be a way but I've been unable to find it.

    Thank you.

    The things in the active portion of the window can be changed by using Ctrl and the + or - key but the text at the top may be better sized in Settings, System, Display. I use a 21.5" monitor at 1440x900 resolution and the Scaling at 125% for better viewing/reading.

    Thank you. I tried that already but changing there causes the fonts in Excel, Outlook and so on to change also. I just want the Edge Favorites Bar bigger.

    Unfortunately many settings are global, affect everything.

    Does that mean there is no solution? If so, that means 'Bye Bye' Edge for me. Too bad!

    Thanks anyway.

    Just trying to point out there's a lot adjustments one can make and that most affect more than what is desired. Windows functions are pretty well interwoven with others, what's done at point A may change something at point G then at point O, etc., and the effect not be noticed right away.
