    Change size of fonts in file explorer


    I've red all the tutorials and post that I could find about changing font size in files explorer but I think some settings have changed in newer versions of Win 10. for example it says to do the following to change font size.

    Change size of fonts in file explorer-display1.png

    However as you can see in my version if Windows 10 I don't have the same options

    My Windows version is


    Change size of fonts in file explorer-0155.jpg

    my dual 24" monitors sit about 3 feet away from me and my vision isn't good enough to see the fonts as good as I'd like. Simple answer is move monitors closer....lol I can't with my setup so I have to find a way to increase the size of the fonts.

    I even bought 2 New 28" 4K monitors thinking I could make things larger only to find out that it makes things smaller. I have several issues but I want to focus on just making the fonts larger in file explorer. If I can get that done on my 24" monitors it may work on my 4K monitors also?

    Appreciate any help in advance

    Open Settings, and click/tap on the Ease of Access icon.

    2
    Click/tap on Display on the left side. (see screenshot below)

    Did you read my post?
    -hmm, that's a bit of an insult really.

    I pointed out that you need to use Ease of Access. If I simply go to Display in Settings, like you, I don't see it.

    Therefore would you kindly confirm you have followed the instructions

    Settings, Ease of Access...

    Sorry didn't mean to insult anyone but when I just posted that I do not have the same slider for fonts in my version of Windows 10 that everyone is telling me to go to. I found it in "Ease of Access" it must have moved there from "Display" were it used to be.

    Once again to the other reply that I came across as rude I am sorry didn't mean to be rude. Just was frustrated that I couldn't find what the tutorials were telling me to go to and change the fonts with the slider. all those tutorials were from older versions were the slider was in the display section.

    Just wasted over $700 on 4K monitors to solve the small desktop issue so I was a bit frustrated and once again to the person I seemed rude to I am sorry.

    No problem. Glad you got there, and relieved the tutorial is correct. MS does change things every so often..
