My new Lenovo i5 just did a long update, with much fanfare, etc, lauding about how wonderful it was all going to be ..
Anyway, took hours to download and complete, so when it did, I eagerly opened it to marvel and enjoy !
Ughhhh .. what's this ? All my icons are very small .. can hardly read the titles .. similarly with all menus and web pages, etc.
Hmm, OK, go to Display settings .. I recall stuff there where you change the size and boldness of text in laels, menus, etc.
Ahh .. but there's a new feature .. custom scaling .. and it looks like it's set to 150. Ok, I'll set it to 175 and see what happens. At which point EVERYTHING gets bigger .. web pages, spread sheets, documents, desktop icons ans their labels ... EVERYTHING !!!
But THAT'S NOT what I wanted - I just wanted the titles and text in labels, menus, etc, to be bigger .. I DIDN'T WANT massive web pages that don't fit on my screen now, or spreadsheets where I now have to go and re-size EVERY column .. EVERY spreadsheet.
What CREATOR genius thought this up ??
I know, I will just put it back to 150, and find the thing where you can in fact re-size and bolden labels, menus, etc.
But the thing is .. I CAN'T find it. My machine is now bereft of it .. unless they've gone and hidden it in some obscure place .. which I don't think they have. 'cause I've looked and looked ...
So I've spent two days resizing everything, but still I've ended up with some spastic, totally unsatisfactory result ..
What creative genius at Microsoft determined that we all have 'one scale fits all' sizing in our eyes ??
Genius ? Moron more like it !!!
