Hi, this is a small problem that I hope someone can help me with that I have not been able to solve. From this question, you'll recolonize that my PC knowledge, leaves a lot to be desired. I have an up to date PC, less than 2 years old, that was set up and working perfectly,for me. Today (7/28) I received and installed Win 10 "creators" update 1703 version 15063.483. Everything went fine but for a small problem, small, except to me. The start menu (Classic Start) and the right click context menu font is to small for me. I'm mid 70s and need the font to be enlarged there. I have tried searching Win 10 and Classic Start settings, to no avail. It seems you can do most anything, except make the font larger, in those two areas. I would appreciate any suggestions, help to allow me to adjust those fonts (print) larger, in those areas. I can and have enlarged the font size other places that I needed. Thank you before hand for your help....S Rubin

I know of one way but it will increase text size across all of windows 10. If you would like to give that a go, let me know and I give some instructions

I remember the feature well in windows 7 called "window color and appearance" you could change all different things to make windows your own. But I can't seem to find it anywhere within the latest Windows 10

See this thread, entitled displayin which I discuss Winaero Tweaker and another regular offers his Font Size Changer.  Right now, dost-tech.com, the home of Font Size Changer, appears to be down for maintenance.  The Font Size Changer is significantly easier to use because it's limited to exactly what its name states.

Brian, is this the System Font Changer you were referring to?

John,

 

          If it isn't, then it's very, very similar.  I just know that FreeBooter is the one who brought it up first (for me, anyway).

 

          What I'd like to see added, which is part of Winaero Tweaker, is the ability to change the fonts, too.  I have changed my icon font to something serifed (Georgia, I think) and slightly larger than the default.
