    I'm reluctant to suggest a 3rd party tool, but I have used this on one of my test Insider builds, and it works quite well. Functions very much like the deprecated options for individual font sizes. If not appropriate, just zap it.

    Ok we're getting very, very close. This got all of my tabs bigger and the right click menu bigger. Now the last piece of the puzzle is when you right click on something like a picture and you select "save file as" or you're downloading something it brings up the "save as" thing and shows the file name and allows you to call it what you want, that's still very faint and small. What is that called?

    You mean like this? In your browser?

    If that's what you're talking about, those are browser font & size adjustments.

    Yes that's exactly it. My box looks exactly like that and I like that. But if you click on that save image as and it brings up the next box, that menu "file name" is what's still small. My browser is Firefox and when I select that save image as, that next box comes up with a Firefox logo on it. Now I've went into the Firefox options and changed the font settings number and it didn't change anything. But I also have looked into the available extensions or add ons and there's one called No Small Text. I wonder if that is something worth looking at?

    That, again, is a Windows Explorer box. It may be the "Menu" box, you'll have to experiment with the app you installed.

    Really? One part of those menus is controlled by Windows and the other by Firefox? I did not know that. I don't think I have Explorer on mine I think it's that new Edge thing. I did look at the settings in Edge the other night and it was 150% also.

    Tonight when I get home I'll adjust the menu settings again in the Wintools app but I don't know if it will change anything because I made every one of them exactly the same with the same numbers and bold and that's the one thing that has remained exactly the same way it was before I started.

    Don't confuse Explorer with Internet Explorer. Explorer is the Windows 10 app that let's you see and work with your folders and file, etc. Internet Explorer is a Browser, like Chrome or Firefox or Edge, etc. Two different things completely. Some settings for Windows will be picked up and used by certain browsers by default. Example, Firefox will use your default system font and size from Windows. Different browsers do it differently.

    Internet Explorer (the browser) is on your system, you just do not readily see it. MS pushes Edge, but IE is there for some sites that still require it. It is quite involved, and no simple answer for that.

    Just try some of the font settings with your app when you get home and see if you can adjust to what you want.

    Side note: If this goes too much longer, I may ask a Moderator to move the whole thing to it's own thread, so as not to "litter" Shawn's Tutorial thread.

    Hey Clint,

    The example screenshots in the tutorials below can help show you. Palette Titles are no longer used in Windows 10 though.
