Changing the font size on Windows 10 can be very useful if, due to particular screen settings, resolution or visual problems, the fonts proposed by the operating system are difficult to read.
Of course Microsoft has equipped its own “creature” with features that allow users to manage font size and, in this article, we’ll show you how to change the font size to your liking.
Here’s how to resize the fonts on Windows 10 at your convenience
It is not said that the only problem is reading fonts considered too small: the text too spacious may be useless, take up space on screen and give the idea of a disorganized and poorly optimized work environment. Following this guide you will be able to influence all the characters present in the operating system: from the one in the various menus, up to the names of the icons.
To proceed follow these instructions:
- start the Settings app by pressing Win and I
- click on the Ease of use category.
- the Display tab on the left is selected by default. On the right, under the Make text Bigger section, slide the bar until the sample text is not easy to read.
- click Apply to confirm your choice
In this way, Windows will immediately resize the size of all the text.
How to enlarge everything on screen
Sometimes, especially for those with vision problems, small characters are only part of the problem: by enlarging the fonts, in fact, the menus as well as the icons and all the other elements of the operating system may remain barely visible.
Also in this case the developers have equipped Windows 10 with special functions to solve any kind of problem. In this case you must:
- go to Settings
- select Ease of use and then Display
- go to the section Make everything bigger and choose the percentage that suits you best
Note: it may be necessary, after confirmation, to restart the operating system so that every single element of it adapts to the new dimensions.
To be able to go back to your steps with the default dimensions, just go to Settings– Accessibility and, from the drop-down menu, opt for Recommended.
