    New update right click (context menu) is way too big.


    i noticed like 2 updates ago that the new context menu size increased so much. now i have to scroll to see the bottom just to see proprieties and rename. its annoying id like the old context menu, is there a way to get the old menu back?

    If you mean the "New" part of the context menu you can use ShellMenuNew from NirSoft to disable what you don't need

    no i mean the DPI size, not the length.

    You can specificaly change the DPI ( font size ) of context menus ,title bars,dialog boxes , etc . in Windows if you arent using the global % size settings slider . FWIW I have the global setting at 125% and my menus etc. are fine on a 27" 1440 P main and 40"1080P extended display content screen .

    Try size 14 or 16 or insead use the global Window text app and other item size custom setting of 125% or 150% i.e. settings > system> display if you have more than one screen each screen ofc. would have its own setting .
