    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    I know it's probably beating a dead horse, and I've probably asked this at least 10K times......

    I can manipulate just about everything font/size wise on Windows except this. Drives me nuts and makes my eyes water! Is there a trick, anywhere, to get the Taskmanager to be readable like all the rest? Is there hope?

    Hello Dick,

    Other than changing the DPI scaling level to make everything larger, I'm not sure.

    Already at 150%. Afraid to go any higher . Can't prove it, but I don't think MS wrote Task Manager.....think it's sub-ed. Same for Reg Edit. If they can put the font/size option there......well........

    Totally outside the Box ...

    There's always Process Monitor as a replacement for Task Manager Does most/all of what task manager does and does it better and has full font select options, and other customisation - And it's a Microsoft Product - Part of Sysinternals

    That is good, use it to trap things. Process Explorer is my other go-to.

    Font size issue with Windows Explorer


    I have Win 10: 1703 (OS Build 15063.413)

    Up until this install, I could change font size with R-click on Desktop, Display Settings, 'advanced display settings', and then 'advanced sizing of text and other items'.

    Or use Control Panel - Display.

    Both are no longer available.

    So, many thanks for the reg files - after a re-boot all is almost as I wanted.

    Even before the latest update, I had issues - mainly when I set the ICON font size to 20, in Windows Explorer with either detail or list view. Increasing the font size for icons did NOT increase the line depth for the text, resulting in the bottom of the text in file explorer being truncated, and the lines being jammed together, making it hard to read.

    I spent hours with 5 different MS support people, and got nowhere.

    Is there anyway of adjusting line depth for Windows Explorer to fit larger fonts ?

    Just as a FYI - I get a similar issue, but not at all related in Regedit - increasing the font size here does not make the panel where the current registry key name is displayed - so it effectively disappears.

    Regards, and thanks again for the reg files.

    Hello @ncurrie55, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The method used in the thread below may be able to help increase the line height spacing in File Explorer.

    Font size issue with Windows Explorer


    Hi, I looked at that file 'ExplorerFrame.dll' but could not see anything to help me.

    Further, there is now a free tool 'changesize.exe' from WinTools to change all the fonts that were available in the older version of Win 10.

    BUT, there seems to be no way to change the actual SYSTEM font - changing all the font sizes with changesize.exe or with the reg files, leaves the basic system font as Segoe UI 9 - and this appears in many places and many third party programs use this also. Even Edge, if I right mouse click, uses the size 9 font, and I have bumped everything else up to 15.

    The Win 10 menu font also stays small .

    Any ideas ?

    Regards,
    Neil H. Currie
