    Edge Font Too Small


    This may be just a problem for older folks like me but sometimes I think Microsoft shoots itself in the foot or they are just plain arrogant. It seems that they keep touting Edge as the browser of choice but then they make the font too small to read and there is no way to change it anymore.

    I know I can magnify the size of the whole browser page but that really doesn't solve the problem and it seems to me that it is just plain common sense to be able to adjust and change the font on any application, especially a browser. Even right here where I am typing this in Windows 10 Forum there are a multitude of ways to change the font.

    With all of the other problems Microsoft has with Windows 10 I would think that they don't need anymore, but I'm sure they don't care and I am sure that I will just stick with Firefox. I am even thinking of going back to Windows 7 where problems seem to be solvable.

    I've seen this problem with a number of my clients and suggest the whole issue may depend upon the monitors the programmers are using, e.g. 21" or larger, while the consumers are still using 17" or 19" models. The programmers tend to have the latest and greatest and forget what their 'audience' needs. The 'trend' seemed to have started back in the 17" or 19" CRT/CRT Flat Screen days [yeah, I had a 19" CRT Flat Screen] and continued into the LCD Flat Panel monitors in use today with Desktops and Notebooks. Of course the hardcore Gamers, or major players, like to have as much on the screen as possible so they need the bigger monitors. I use a 21.5" Flat Panel on my main computers but also have a 27" Flat Panel on a backup computer.

    The problem is that when I click on Settings there is no Reading View Style and no Reading View Font Size boxes shown. I am using Windows 10 Pro 1703.
