    Windows 10 Home x64 (Laptop), Windows 10 Pro x64 (Desktop)

    My laptop has just decided to update to the CU!

    I've used the .reg files to changes the font sizes but I find the font settings don't equate to what I used prior to the CU. For example a previous icon font size of 14 in Display Settings now seems to equate to an icon size of 17 using the .reg file. I wonder if the 'font calibration' is correct?

    You may have to play with different sizes if the current screen resolution and DPI may offset.

    For information... and the previous settings I used in the AU update such as 'Icons 12 Bold' do not correspond in size to the new settings created by the reg files. For example, Icons 12 in the AU update now need to be set to size 14 for the same effect. Same for menus. 9 bold has now to be 11 bold for the same size as before.

    I wouldn't like to say whether that is PC specific (or just an observed difference for me) or whether it applies generally.

    To not have these settings as standard in the CU update is a MAJOR omission imo and something that MS should address. Visuals are so very important to the look and feel of an OS.

    You could be right. These seem to have changed yet again (lol) following the FCU.

    Using the same settings as for Creators Update now seems to give slightly different results with the Fall Update (clean installed).

    The partition space is truncated... but visually the overall effect is good I'm thinking you need some half sizes now Shawn
