    How To Change Font Size?


    I just installed the most recent update for Windows 10 and I've noticed that my fonts in Windows 10 and my apps are smaller.

    Even in apps like Chrome and Firefox my fonts are smaller.

    How can I increase the size of my fonts?

    Thank you.

    You could try using this 3rd party app for Windows Creative update. This does work and its free. Link below.

    Note that in some apps like chrome you can hold the Ctrl button and scroll mouse wheel to change text size.

    There is a scaling under display settings. i.e. scale and layout, custom scaling.

    Your replies are appreciated!

    I believe this "text shrinking situation" began after I installed the Windows 10 Creator's Update.

    Did this happen to other users after getting the update?

    EDIT:

    I just went into "Display settings" and changed the custom scaling number from 125% to 190%, but the changes won't appear until I logout of Windows 10...

    I've tried entering high numbers and low numbers where it says "Custom scaling" but the number seems to always revert back to "175%".

    Is this normal?
