    How to Change Text Size in Windows 10


    Starting with Windows 10 build 17692, the ability to increase text size across the system is back and better than ever. You can use a new setting called Make everything bigger with a slider that will adjust text size across the system, win32 (desktop) apps, and UWP (Store) apps.

    That means you can now make text bigger in Start menu, File Explorer, Settings, etc., without having to change the overall DPI scaling level of your system.

    This tutorial will show you how to quickly change the text size across the system for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1 Open Settings, and click/tap on the Ease of Access icon.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 21359, the Ease of Access category in Settings has been renamed to Accessibility.


    2 Click/tap on Display on the left side. (see screenshot below)

    3 Adjust the Make text bigger slider to the size you want on the right side.

    You will see a preview of the selected text size above the slider.


    4 When you have the slider adjusted to the text size you want, click/tap on Apply.

    5 You can now close Settings if you like.

    That's it,

    I hope this comes to be a minor feature update between consumer builds. I know a lot of people this would help.

    Nothing happened


    Changed to 150% but nothing changed. Restart didn't change it either.

    Hello Chuck,

    Odd. Just to verify, did you click on the Apply button afterwards?

    If so, does increasing it to higher percentage make any difference for you?

    I think I may try this and change my DPI scaling back to 100%. Wonder if it will look better. The DPI scaling at 120% looks fuzzy at times.

    I can change most font size, but not in the "Run" dialog (Win+r), is this hard coded?
