Windows 10: You can make the type on the start menu larger.

    You can make the type on the start menu larger.


    Hi

    This doesn't actually give you a lot of choices buy it will make the type bigger.

    Go to PC Settings, select the Display tab, at the bottom there is the More Options, option.
    Set it to Larger and the type on the Start Menu will get a lot bigger.

    I'd rather have something in between but that's probably coming in the future.

    Mike

    Added later, you have to go to the PC and Devices tab in PC Settings.
    Then select the Display.

    Ah ... from your post in another thread Mike:
    PC Settings.

    PC and Devices

    Display

    More Options.

    Select Large
    Doesn't work on my old Acer Laptop, apparently can't support it. The drop down under More Options is grayed out.
