    Increase font size in Edge?


    Does anyone know of a way to enlarge the fonts on the tabs and favorites bar items? The old eyes are not what they were, and I'd like to bump up the size if it's possible. A registry entry? Anything?

    TIA

    I haven't found one and have a similar problem with Chrome.

    Well, not specifically for Edge.... but you can change the font scaling for all of Windows: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5990-dpi-scaling-level-displays-change-windows-10-a.html

    No idea for Edge or Chrome, but this can be adjusted in Firefox, either with UserChrome modifications or with an extension, such as Classic Theme Restorer.

    <just a suggestion that probably doesn't help if you want to stay with Edge>

    Yes, I know about scaling, and have applied a degree of it. But that scales everything. And you can individually set font sizes for menus, message boxes, etc., but that doesn't affect Modern Apps - only win32 'Desktop Apps'. I suspect that somewhere in the registry are entries for adjusting the metrics for Modern Apps, but I haven't been able to find any settings dialog that exposes them...

    For Chrome and Firefox, and indeed all win32 'Desktop Apps', you can easily adjust the size of menu items, message box items, etc. from the Display Settings. The problem is with Modern Apps (I guess they're calling them 'Trusted Windows Store Apps' now). I can find no way of tweaking the window metrics for these apps...

    Well.. I just tried it and I guess the font size for this site is being set via the HTML. Or it just doesn't work yet..
