    Text Size Since Creators Update


    Since the creators update my text size and browser icons are back to small size. I can't find the old display settings where you can adjust text size, bold, etc and icon size. DPI settings change the text size but also adjust the icons which are already the correct size. Hopefully that option isn't gone. Not where it use to be.

    Currently I am using that third party font and text adjuster that Old Mike suggested in another thread. Works for now but wish the Creators update hadn't removed the one that windows used previously.

    I don't have those options since I updated to Creators. No Display icon in the control panel. I can go to display in the settings but those text options are not there. Those were the options I had before the update. Are you on the creators update and have those options?

    Option Two has to be used in the Creators Update instead.

    Thanks for the info. That third party program that Old Mike suggested is working perfect. I will also check out option 2 to see if it is any easier or better.

    Option 2 are .reg files to set it. They can be handy to keep to merge them as needed without the need of 3rd party software.

    Thanks for that! I have used it to set the font to 11 regular in the File Explorer. It works well, except that the lower part of file names is cut off... For example the letter p is very short, and the letter g almost looks like a q as the bottom curve is not there. Is there anything that can be done about this?
