    Making menu and font text bold.


    I could do this in all other Windows but I can't find it in 10. What am I missing?

    That's where you need to be..
    (Windows key + X, click Control Panel launches the CP)

    or
    Settings, search for Display, scroll down and keep clicking advanced settings

    Cannot make icon font bold


    I do not want to change the size, I want to make it bold. I am very familiar with the control panel screen you have mentioned. On my screen I cannot make it bold because that is grayed out.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Text options will be grayed out if scaling is set to anything other than 100%. In addition, Menu fonts won't display as bold unless you create the value 'ImmersiveContextMenu' with a value of 0 under this registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\FlightedFeatures

    Good Luck,
    Keith

    Keith:

    I do not have the key 'Flighted Features'. I have Flighting and Flight Information under the 'current version' key.

    Go ahead & create the key as well, them. Note there is no space between the words.
