    What to call text in the Control Panel?

    There is an area of the Control Panel where you can change the size of text in certain contexts. Ironically, none of the options affect the text of the Control Panel itself. I wish to make a suggestion via the Win 10 feedback system but in order to do this effectively I need to know what to call this text. It's not part of a title bar or a tooltip or a message box; what is it?

    I am not interested in increasing the entire interface size to 125% or 150% so there's no need to suggest that. Thanks!

    That part is on the way out anyway, replaced by Settings panel.

    You nailed it cradom; THX notice the blue Window Content in the right panel matches the blue striping in the content area, some also call it the Content Area.
