    If you are using a mouse with a wheel at the top , press Ctrl key and HOLD > roll the wheel...........

    Clockwise is to decrease font/text size.
    Counterclockwise is to increase.

    Text size in files explorer


    Hello
    Yes, I did 'control' + whell mouse - it only changes the view, it opens each line separatly and enlarges only the icons, text stays same size.
    Thanks anyway
    Now I am trying to get back some color to the windows, no luck yet.

    Try control panel, display, there you can change the text size for Title bars and others.

    I don't know what or how you did.

    Here are my 2 screenshots. 1st one is before using the mouse wheel. 2nd one is after increasing the overall size using the mouse wheel.

    Left click at Start button > left side, click Settings > click System > right side, move the slider to the right to change the text size.

    CTRL+Mouse Wheel works great, even inside explorer.exe

    But how can I adjust the space between the lines (between folders and between files)?
    On the left side (folder view) the space between the folders is OK.
    On the right side, the gap seems to small for my taste.

    Do you know any possibility to adjust this?
