My advanced display options are missing after last update. Solved

    My advanced display options are missing after last update.

    Let me start off by saying I am visually impaired. I used to be able to go into settings, display & find an advance option for font size. There were several drop downs such as Title, Menu, Tool bar, etc., that I could choose the size of the font. I used an 18 or 20 pt. font. This would enlarge the fonts on my applications. I'm not talking about the page itself, I can zoom & enlarge. This was for all the upper tool bars, or the side tool bars.

    After this update: Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1703, en-us - That advanced option disappeared. All my settings reverted back to default. I have searched & searched & cannot find anything similar. I am hoping it is just housed somewhere else that isn't too obvious. Right now I am having to use a physical magnifying glass to do my work.

    Any help from brilliant minds out there would be so much appreciated!!

    Thanks guys!

    Hello Kitt, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Luckily, you'll still be able to use Option Two in the tutorial below to manually change the "Menus" text size to what you want. The "Related Tutorials" links at the bottom of the tutorial include other items you can change the size of if needed.

    Thanks Brink!! I've got to get our IT Admin to come down to do the #2 option. Any idea WHY they got rid of the first option with the last update?? Microsoft got rid of a few useful things when they went with Windows 10.

    I appreciate your help!

    I don't know all the details for why, but it appears to have been removed to make it easier for DPI scaling level changes to look better.
