    I'm having the same problem. Text size is greyed out. I use a 52" tv as my monitor. The scaling thing had I know it would lock the option to change individual items I would never have used. However changing it back, logging out and then back in again does not fix it or unlock it. I should not have to keep going into my registry in order to b ale to customize this OS the way I want it to function. The number of appearance customization options they removed since 7 is ridiculous and stupid. They should never have removed those options. Maybe it might make it easier for people who have never used a computer before but in this day and age, who hasn't? As for those of us who have been using them since they were invented, it's a right PITA because we're used to being able to customize everything little thing and know how to, and now we can't. There has GOT to be a fix for this problem. The scaling thing would be fine for me except for one thing, affects the MMO I play as well and messes with my UI so it doesn't work right and it's exceedingly annoying so I need to be able to use the change text size of the individual items because my monitor is so huge it makes it very hard to read anything. I am having to use the tv for my monitor as I don't have a working real monitor atm and can't afford one. So i really need to find a fix for this.

    Can I ask what version of Windows you are running? I had this problem on the initial release (build 10240) but the latest 1511 release seems to have fixed it with no regedits required any more.

    You should see something like this showing the build... The build 10240 had the problem but my current version 10586 as shown below after the latest update works fine.
