    Advanced sizing of text ... gone with Creators Update ?!


    Does anybody know where "advanced sizing of text and other items" from display settings is gone ? I cannot find it anywhere and I need Windows to have bigger fonts (and I don't want to scale everything, just the size of the text). If it's completely gone with Creators Update, which by the way would be a very dumb move, then is there any other way to make those changes ? I need to change all those settings from 9pt to 10pt. Perhaps some registry hack or something ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello 133twannabe, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You can still manually change all of those using the .reg files from the tutorials below except for "palette titles" in Windows 10 Creators Update. "Palette titles" are no longer available.

    I've created an account here to let you know these reg edits did not work for me at all. My text is still microscopic after running them and restarting my PC

    Hello Steve, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    They do work, so there must be something else going on with your system.

    Is your small text for the items that the tutorials are for?

    You might check your DPI scaling and screen resolution settings to see if they could be the issue.

    The higher the DPI, the larger everything will appear.

    Nope, I'm on Windows 10 home and they don't work. I've downloaded a zip file which will allow me acces to gpedit.msc and have copy and pasted a bunch of folders and files into group policy editor to allow me to make changes to registry. Still a work in progress. Microsoft has really proven themselves incompetent. My text is microscopic on my HDTV and my DPI is at 150

    This seems like another dumb move to remove options for display configuration.

    The registry files actually did work. I was used to selecting 11pt when I had the options, now I had to download 18pt reg edits. Sorry guys.

    Still seems like such a incompetent decision from Microsoft to require unsupported registry edits just to change font size. Feel bad for all the causal users who can't see their screens on 4/11

    No problem Steve. I'm happy to hear that they are working for you.

    The .reg files make the same changes as the removed settings do, but yeah it would be nice to have these settings back in a UI. Perhaps in Settings -> Personalize somewhere.

    Thanks for asking the question l33twannabe and Brink for answering the question. I installed the Creators Update last night and was struggling with the small icon text (1920x1080 monitor). The reg file worked for me. Icon text size is now 11.

    Thanks again. :)
