    How to Change Text Size for Title Bars in Windows 10

    information   Information
    The title bar is a bar located at the top of a window, desktop app, or dialog box that displays it's name.

    You can make the text of title bars on your screen easier to see by making them larger while keeping your display set to its recommended resolution and default DPI.

    The font size of text in title bars is set to 9 by default in Windows 10. In previous Windows, the size was set to 11 by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to change the font size of text in title bars to what you want for your account in Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    Windows apps (aka: modern apps) are not affected by this setting.

    If you changed the DPI scaling level settings to anything other than the default 96 DPI (100%), you will not be able to change the text size for items.

    NOTE: The default size is 9.

    4. Check or uncheck Bold for what you want.

    5. When finished, click/tap on Apply.

    Shawn, your tut 'Personalize (classic)' context menu - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums still works perfectly in 10240 & 10525. Might want to add to related tuts.... Dick.
