    How do I make everything look bigger?


    Hi,

    I had a vision correction surgery two weeks ago and it'll be about two months until my vision is sharp enough for small text. Until then, I'd like to make everything look bigger on my Windows 10 computer. It's easy to zoom in the browsers, but navigating folders is a real pain.

    Thanks.

    I set my screen resolution to 1440x900 then set the text to 125%. You might want to try an even smaller resolution number such as 1024x768 which should make things larger. And for text size there's 150%.

    I have scaling set to 200% in Settings > Display - works for me.
