    Really interesting. All the searching I've done I don't see any other answers. I saw posts on changing group policies but they weren't really related to this. Restore Advance Settings takes you back to defaults and there is nothing about text except in the section Accessibility with an option to "Reset Text size to medium for new windows and tabs" You will see it near top.

    You could establish another user and see if that user, with your tweaker installed, behaves differently. To add / delete users enter settings, click on accounts, down the left is "Family and other people".

    Have you considered a non MS browser which I know is not a fix?

    I apologized as I must have missed answer to "Do you have any cleaner or other Utilities running ?"

    I figured out how I created Don, Doncole2 and Mac.

    I created them back when I had Windows 8.1.
    I finally figured out how to create a Doncole3 with Windows 10.
    Low and behold the IE 11 has text in the Title Bar.
    The history works.
    However changing the font size doesn't stick.
    This is very important to me. I don't want set Title Bar font size every time I restart the computer.

    I wonder why the Don user is the only one that (the Title Bar font) sticks.
    Don was the first one I created when I first got the computer.
    What different about user Don that it saves the fonts with Winaero Tweaker. It didn't before the Tweaker.

    The only thing I'm using is Kaspersky before during and after the problems.

    I think the problem is user(s) profiles are corrupt..

    I think as we read these forums we see a lot of corrupted profiles and they manifest themselves in an assortment of flavors. Start buttons, task bar use, logins, presentations in File Explorer, context menus, etc.

    It would be interesting to get a list of suspects profile issues and then ask users are they using local or Microsoft accounts to see if there is a pattern. Not saying either is broken but I have to ask, why is creating another user listed as a fix for so many issues.

    I think I found my problem.

    I created a fourth user and every thing works history, magnifier, and text in Internet Explorer title bar.

    You have to set the Custom Scaling Level BEFORE you set the Tile Bar Font Size and the Bold Check Box in Advanced Sizing of Text and Other Items.

    Although it makes perfectly, logical sense, but nobody ever mentioned this to me in the docs or elsewhere.

    I've been struggling with this for several months now. Check my posts.

    Thank you,
