    Windows 10 GUIs too small in Asus X556UA

    I have an Asus X556UA laptop. It was recently bought. In relation to any graphics issues it can be considered to be at factory settings.

    When I received this laptop after the initial installation phase I began noticing that some GUIs were very small, for example the first thing was the middle yellow GUI of Word 2007. The general text sizes within Word and its GUIs are also too small.

    This laptop is 1920 x 1080. It looks to me as though Asus have set the text size at 125%. There is an Intel HD Graphics Control Panel.

    To make things easier I have attached a pdf document showing the problem.

    My personal experience of trying to change screen resolutions, DPIs (custom text size) was never positive in Windows 7 or XP. I can't remember ever having had a satisfactory outcome and once (I can't remember if it was in Windows 7 or XP) a restore point did not even undo my amendments (I think it was something to do with my changing DPI settings) and I had to do a factory reset again. So I don't have the time or energy for this type of experimentation...

    What concerns me the most about this is that in relation to any graphics issues is that the laptop can still be considered to be at factory settings.

    I will probably have to contact Asus support before actually doing anything but am looking to this forum for advice first.

    Many thanks for any suggestions.
