Windows 10: Fonts etc

    Fonts etc


    I don't know about you but I am finding this messy and maddening.

    In Win.7 you could modify the font for the windows, both size and font itself. Win 10 will not all me to modify size, which is stuck on 9pt, and there is no option shown to change the font to Times from Arial.

    This means I have had to alter the scaling to 125% so that the icons on the taskbar are big enough, and the text on the windows readable. This, in turn, messes up the resolution on Skype and another program.

    Anyone know how you can get the ability to change font and font size?

    Thanks, but I don't even have a panel with 'installed fonts' to drag and drop the new one into. I have only a greyed out 'install' button at the top of the list of fonts, and even the point settings are greyed, I cannot resize the font installed either. Thanks for the idea though, much appreciated.

    This is only available if your scaling is set at 100% , I'm surmising you have it set at 125% and so isn't available.

    Possibly, I will have a fiddle with it. Why on earth can't they make it all work right before they launch it...! Grrrrr.....
