Hey, sportman12!

 

Text size: Right click on desktop, Personalize, Display .. and then you'll see the options.  There are a lot of related options, so experiment by clicking on Advanced and whatever other links you see, just after Personalize.

 

For File Explorer, you have the hated ribbon now, and at its far right (if I remember properly) there is some kind of 'Options' button which if you click it, allows you to select 'Details'.  That will make your drives appear left side in the right pane.

 

If you want them to appear in the left pane, it's more complicated.  Depends on what you mean.  So play with 'Organize' and 'Layout' in the upper left corner of the File Explorer.

 

Basically, you have to experiment as MSFT has again moved the cheese in frustrating ways. As if they want us to spend our lives on FINDING HOW TO DO THINGS rather than on life.

For larger than 150, you look for 'custom' in the settings.  Option should be on the left.  You have to experiment with each of the line items, because I don't know if you're using 32-bit which I don't have, or Home which I also don't have.  So my instructions are somewhat imprecise.

 

Basically you hunt and guess, as always, to find what you want. But you're on the right page, for Personalize Display.

 

Or, you can type your questions in the search bar and get the answers specific to your system.

 

So try that: try selecting 'File Explorer Display Details' and see how your latest question gets answered.

Hi sportman12 :)

For your first question, click on the Start Menu and enter Settings. From there, click on System and the option will be under Display. Simply drag the bar towards the right to increase the font size for the system.

For changing the font size of text displayed in your browser, left-click in your browser, and then try (1) holding the CTRL key down and rolling your mouse wheel up or down, or (2) holding the CTRL key down and pressing the keyboard's "+" or "-" keys.

 

Thanks to AOL's article, which I found by searching with the terms "change font size in browser" :

<https://help.aol.com/articles/how-do-i-enlarge-or-reduce-the-font-size-on-my-web-browser>.

 

It worked for me using the Mozilla Firefox browser under Windows 10.

 

The Web browser is one of many application programs ("apps") running under the Windows operating system.  For changing the size of other parts of the operating system, such as the icons displayed on the desktop, or the resolution of the display as a whole, follow the suggestions that Aura gave above. (Aura really seems to know what he's talking about.)

I can't really say what would be the recommended text size. But for the resolution, I always goes for the highest available.

I'll provide screenshots when I get home, since I don't have Windows 10 at work.

Alright to change the resolution of a monitor, you need to select that monitor then click on the Advanced display settings option at the bottom.

Once done, you can change the resolution of that monitor.

As for what would be the recommended font size for your monitor(s), I have no idea. It's your choice. Personally I never moved it and leave it at its default level (which is 100% (recommended)).
