    How can i change Font Size without changing DPI Scaling Settings?


    My screen has 3 options in the DPI settings, 100,125 and 150% and the recommended one is 125% but the taskbar is huge with huge icons too and i don't like that plus there is an issue with blurred text in some windows like Device manager etc.
    So i don't really know why 125% is recommended.

    Anyway i want 100%, the size of taskbar and icons are perfect, now the only issue is the text there is TOO small, i need glasses to read. Then i go to ''Advanced sizing of texts and other..'' to adjust manualy the size of the text, but it's greyed out, i cannot!..

    Any suggestions?

    But this changes the whole DPI scaling, i messed a little with it in the past and i couldn't find a good number that would fit.
    It was even making icons look blurry sometimes.

    When i put my scaling to 100% imemdiately the text size options are greyed out for some reason as i mentioned in the post.
    And yes i have it checked the 'Clear Type Text'.

    Something out of topic though, how did you put colour on the title bars? I had searched that before but there isn't any option.

    Try this:

    Click “set a custom scaling level” . Set custom level to 100%, then apply.
    Log out of Windows, then back in, and the grayed out area “change only the text size” should be available.

    Damn it worked.
    What a smart way to adjust the font size and i feel stupid that i didn't think of that way, lol.
    Nicely done, thanks a lot.
