    Hello Neil,

    You might see if this below may help with text size for menus.

    System Font size issue with Win 10


    That works ok, but does not go far enough. The Menu font option changes the font size of horizontal menus below title bars, but has no effect on the Start Menu.

    And there is no way to modify the main System font at all that I have been able to find.

    Regards,
    Neil H. Currie

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to change the default system font, but it doesn't change its size unless the font itself is bigger by default.

    Windows 10

    I've just upgraded to a new Laptop with Windows 10 build 15063.413 - I tried the option2 reg downloads for both the Title Bar and Icons - to font size 12 - but nothing has improved in either File Exporter or Word (2010 Office). I really miss the facility to easily change the text size as I'm getting old too - 70+ and I'd rather have a larger size. I don't understand why Windows has taken it away. I used the setting on my previous machine.

    Hello Jules, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, try a large size, or you could change the DPI scaling level to make everything appear larger.

    That helps a lot (changed from reccomended 125% to 150%) But as posted somewhere else, the text is now slightly fuzzy.

    @Jules99

    Possibly you need to adjust what's called "Clear Type". Take a look here, follow thru with what looks best for you, and see if it helps de-fuzz/de-blur the type.

    Turn On or Off ClearType in Windows 10 Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials

    Go to your Cortana search box lower left and type the word clear. The top choice should be Adjust ClearType Text. Run that. It will start you here. Make sure the box is checked and proceed. You see your monitor discovered, then proceed thru 5 screens of what looks best to your eyes. Apply and see if it helps.

    The Clear Type was OK. HOwever, I used MS Access (2010 Office) today and the text I was typing into the form was very very 'thin'. I really need a way to change that. What Acccess displayed in its boilerplate was also similarly 'weedy'
