    Windows 10 Anniversary version - How to change icon font and set size?


    Have successfully installed Anniversary Version on a Lenovo Laptop E525. Now need to change & enlarge the Icon Font, in order to use the screen. Best I can do is a solid white font of indeterminate size accompanied by a fuzzy shadow. Right now it is not useable, unless I use a Hand magnifying glass - which is absurd. There must be a way. Is there?

    this was a useful link. I got closer to what I want, by using only one screen. I had 2 screens and the parameters got scrambled - causing confusion. Now I am using the laptop with only its own screen and not trying to get fancy with a secondary.

    thank you much,
