    Windows 10 version 1709 Advanced Display Settings missing?


    This has been addressed in the past. I'm wondering if there is a fix?

    Apparently Windows 10 Version 1607? has " Advanced Display Settings" and with version 1709 it's now missing from "Display" and perhaps the entire Windows Windows 10 OS?

    I think it was completely removed by Microsoft in Windows 10 ver. 1709?

    2 PC version history

    2.1 Version 1507
    2.2 Version 1511 (November Update)
    2.3 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update)
    2.4 Version 1703 (Creators Update)
    2.5 Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update)
    2.6 Version 1803
    2.7 Version 1809

    I'm running Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.248) and after searching high and low haven't been able to find Advanced Display Settings

    Google search for Advanced Display Settings

    In Windows 10, you can no longer change the text size of a specific item. To change your screen resolution, use the drop down menu under Resolution. To adjust your color calibration, search "calibrate display color" in the search box of Settings and follow the directions. Aug 30, 2017

    I have application and small utilities such as a Password App without anyway to change the font sizes in the apps. So the applications and utilities become very difficult to read.

    Manual settings using reg file


    I found this post which lists manual configure Advanced Display Setting from the registry using reg files.

    Change Menus Text Size in Windows 10 Windows 10 Tutorials

    These do work to varying degrees with some applications and utilities. Works with Firefox which can be changed from with Firefox menus both fonts and text size.

    However it requires a reboot after each reg file merge to determine the correct font size and results.

    If you like, you should be able to just sign out and in to apply instead.

    Likewise, the DPI scaling has been removed, but can be set in the registry. Option Four in this tutorial...

    Edit: no it hasn't been removed - my mistake

    but I'll leave the post and link here because changing the DPI scaling may help make the OP's hard-to-read apps more legible.

    What does it look like for you?

    Ooops, my bad. I've got so used to useful settings being removed that I automatically read the tutorial note "This option is only available starting with Windows 10 build 15019" as 'This option is not available starting with Windows 10 build 15019."

    (sorry)

    Hey Mike, :)

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, you would see the "Advanced scaling settings" link instead of the "Custom scaling" link.
