Windows 10: Print in Win 10 File Explorer much too small Solved

    Print in Win 10 File Explorer much too small

    Hello all,
    New computer, new Win 10. Unfortunately, the print in the file explorer is microscopic. I can barely make it out. I've set the computer to a lower resolution so I can easily see the type in my Photoshop program and other programs. However, the file explorer print is still way too small.

    I've tinkered with advanced display settings and changed a bunch of things including title bars, menus, palette, message boxes, etc. Unfortunately, the file explorer remains too small to see. I do not want to use the magnifier all of the time.

    Is there any way to increase the print in the file explorer window without altering anything else? Does anyone else have this problem and if so, how did you rectify it?

    Thank you for the help.

    Hello Gene, :)

    You might see if changing your DPI scaling level to a higher percentage level may help. It will have everything appear larger.

    Thanks, Brink. Actually, I just discovered that changing the "Icon" in advanced settings changes the size of the type in explorer too, while not changing the size of the icon!
