How to Make Text Larger or Bigger in Windows 10
Windows is very customizable operating system, and you can change its look by your desire. For, example if you want to change the text size of a certain Windows feature, you can do that with just a few clicks, and in this article, we’ll show you how to do that.
It is well known that Microsoft removed a lot of features of Windows 7 in Windows 8 and Windows 10 (read more about it in our article about which features have been removed from Windows 7), and one of them is Advanced Appearance settings dialog. This dialog allowed you to perform various appearance customizations, like changing colors and windows metrics. In Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 all that’s left are a few settings of the text size.
But we can’t guarantee that this will stay like that, because Windows 10 is still in it’s early, testing phase, and final release of the operating system could bring some changes. However, changing only the text size is definitely better choice than changing the entire DPI, because changing DPI often causes some scaling issues.
To increase the size of various texts of your system, do the following :
- Right click on the Desktop and go to Display Settings
- Under Display section, go to Advanced display settings
- In Advanced display settings window go to Advanced sizing of text and other items
- Under Change only text sizes, you’ll notice a drop-down menu, it features settings for text sizes of various system texts (Title bars, Menus, Message Boxes, Palette titles, Icons and Tooltips). Select the desired text, and change its size from the drop-down menu next to it
- You can also set fonts to bold, by checking Bold check box
- Click Apply and close all Display settings window
