Q: Font Size Changes

I am having problems with the font size changing when I open documents and websites. I physically have to go to the toolbox and click on the Zoom feature to enlarge the font. It will show the font as being 100% but actually it looks to be about 50%.

What can I do to assure the font remains at the default setting?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows 10.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

Probably to get started I could use a "settings display" script.

Help, please

I'm not sure what has happened but I went to create a system restore point earlier today only to find that the box where you type the description has shrunk down to an unreadable size as you can see below

Other programs don't seem to be affected, ie when naming/renaming files or installing programs into custom locations font size is normal. I don't know if it is only system restore that has this problem but it's the only program i've come across that is suffering.

Any ideas what has gone wrong or more importantly how to resize the type box so I can at least see what i'm typing?

I am having trouble with the font size and Pop up boxes size. Both are either too big or too small. I dont know how to solve this problem.

For example if I want to update my Symantic AntiVirus or Install a new program, the Box that opens is either too big or too small and font size too.

Recently I copied some fonts to my folder in Windows folder (Fonts folder).

I think maybe that has caused the problem. But I dont know how to solve it.

Hi Muneeb and welcome to TSF !

You could give system restore a try : start => all programs => accessories => system tools => system restore. Select a date in bold prior to when the problem began. You won't lose any personal data but you may need to reinstall any program or update you've installed since then.

Else the system file checker can restore your system fonts. You'll need an XP install CD with service pack 2 (XP Home SP2 or XP Pro SP2 depending on the version you have installed). If your current CD hasn't got service pack 2 then you need to create a slipstreamed CD with SP2. Use one of these guides and report once you have an XP SP2 install CD :

When i move cursor with Touchpad the font changes size all browsers have to keep using cntrl + & - to adjust.---Any fix?


Mine has shown a bit of a distressing tendency to do that since they added the new touchpad features they're quite proud of, to emulate some of the features of a touch screen. Check your touchpad settings. I don't know how your device is set up, but mine's under Synaptics>Properties>Device Settings> on the Settings button. There may be something you can change or untick under there. There was mention of it in the introductory app, which I seem to have temporarily misplaced, possibly because I can't remember what it was called...

Failing that, report it through the Feedback App.

Edited to add: I do suspect it has to do with the pinch/spread fingers feature to enlarge or shrink picture/text/etc. I'm trying to be more conscious of how I move my fingers on there. If you un-tick some of those features, it may solve the problem.

What size screen did you upgrade to, the bigger screen can make thing look different. Also, what resolution are you running at? If it is different than the last resolution that you had on your other monitor then everything will look different. For a rule the higher the resolution the smaller the icons, and the lower the resolution the the larger the icons, toolbars, etc.

When I was trying to make my XP SP3 look like Vista, I changed something for the font.
I used Movefile and a script. When the computer restarted, the font had changed, but is far too big and looks terrible.
I didn't save a system restore point
And I have tried changing the font size in 'Display Settings', then 'Appearance'. And I have tried changing the DPI setting and the 'Display Settings', 'Settings', then 'Advanced'.
Nothing. I really want everything put back to normal. How do I reset the fonts back to the standard XP size and style?
Or if possible, just to reduce the system font size.

I used these instructions:

A:HELP! XP Font Size

heeaar05, You should have set a System Restore point like the instructions stated before you made the change. You could try the reg file fix line 249 (left column) "Set Default XP Font Back to Tahoma" at the link below. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

Can't guarantee that it will fix your problem so it's your call.

Hi, darrinlane, and welcome back!

Let's start at the beginning and work our way forward. Follow the instructions below. In the meantime, I will move your thread to HJT Help, so the Analysts will find it faster.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in 'y' if you agree. The 'result.txt' file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. You don't need to post the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

I don't really know how this problem occurred.

I didn't notice it until Monday when my Norton Anti-Virus scheduled scan came up and I noticed that the font and the window for it were much larger. I didn't think much of it because it didn't seem like a big deal. However, when I turned on my scanner and opened up Adobe Photoshop to scan, I noticed that the font and window for the scanner options were larger as well. This poses some problems as the I cannot access all the options and the windows are of static dimensions.

I tried adjusting font size in the "Windows Display" settings everything seems to change except what is shown in the following screenshots.

Any ideas of what caused this?

I have the font size marked at HUGE on my gmail settings but when I type an email it's very small. When I used another computer over the holiday I noticed that the HUGE setting worked and it is HUGE. I don't need it to be HUGE. LARGE would do. But I never get anything but small. So there must be a glitch in MY computer since my settings worked on another computer. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

I have IE6 and XP Pro installed on a new computer. When I go to IE 6 the fonts are super large although I have the view set on SMALLEST. Nothing I seem to do will change the font size. I did the IE tools font sizes and under accessibility I checked ignore font sizes. Nothing is working. The XP Pro version I installed had service pack 3C...does that mean that IE 7 was installed and that I have IE 6 on the computer as well causing a confusion in IE?

Not sure where to post this. New computers at work with Windows xp and Lotus Notes. I'm unable to change the font size on Lotus notes. I don't know which version it is, I'm unable to find that anywhere but since they're all new I'm going with the assumption that it's the most recent version 6.5 I'm able to change the font in each individual letter but I can't get the default font size to change. I switched the font size from size 5 to 10 but nothing happened. With that major difference I should have been able to see something. Any suggestions?

Vista Home Basic.
Window size: The only settings I can find are in 'Properties' for Shortcuts.
All other windows and web pages open about half-size and must be Maximize.
Links and all 'new-windows' open half size.
I would like all windows to open 'Maximized'.

Font size: Webpage "A" displays #12 fonts. The next page the fonts are #8.
I have checked the boxes; 'Ignore font style' and 'Ignore font size'.
Surely I am missing something.

Thanks, Deanohop

Please help me set the size of the type on my web pages to a reasonable size. It seems to move from small to large from website to website. Is there any way I can make it the same instead of constantly adjusting the size. Have tried custom setting the zoom but that also changes from website to website. With XP I never had this problem and everything remained the same comfortable to read size. I am slightly visually impaired so cant read very small print and for each web page visited with vista I have to use CTR + or - to increase or decrease. Thanks.

and Ignore font sizes specified on webpages check boxes,
and then click OK twice.

Try to check your zoom factor. And also make sure you reset the font settings/style via the menu options when this occurs.

there is an option in Tools--> Internet Options-->General--> Accessibility that ignores all font setting on the internet, but this is for all pages you visit, if you are willing to do that on the ones you cant see then it will work for you, there may be another option that you can use, but right off the top of my head that is one of them.

While selecting my contacts for a group email, I held down the Ctrl key while scrolling down the list of my contacts. The size of the font in all email applications was suddenly reduced to a very small size. I tried to correct this problem by doing a "system restore" to a previous date but I received a message that this was unsuccessful. I then tried to select another "restore date" but I couldn't go back to the month of Feb. to select another restore date. I hope that someone can help. Any suggestions, please go into some detail because I'm "technologically challenged".

I want to make the font size larger:
On the Command Bar.
On the Task Bar.
In the Details Pane.
In Message Boxes.
See red boxes in the gif:

Does anyone know which setting adjusts the font size in those areas?

I can make the text larger by using the "Medium - 125%" setting (in the Display window).
However some of my programs and a few installers can't cope with it (i.e. buttons don't appear because they are outside the window area).

completely un-install norton and symantics and install AVG 8.5..........this works WAY better and norton will not control you so much. it will also make your laptop faster especially if the OS is VISTA...Norton is a very, very heavy software program.un-fortunatly it comes pre-installed on almost every PC in 09'. there are many programs to un-install on a new PC. this is only one of them.....(NORTON)....make sure you take your laptop some where like Comp USA or similar and have your ram maxed out. once again esp. if you are running VISTA OS...

Ive been messing around with Google Chrome 4.0 and I am really impressed with its speed and overall performance, however the inability to set the font size is preventing me from making the switch permanent. I have heard that this is a problem with Webkit, however I find it hard to believe that such a basic option can not be included in a browser... Has anyone found a way to do this in Chrome 4.0??

Other than Window Blinds, which I've had it with becasue it's so buggy sometimes, is there ant way to increase the size of Fonts in those right click menus an dthe one you get when you hit start and all programs. I imagine threre has to be a registry fix for something like this. The only other way I know how to do is by going to properties/appearance and font size but that throws the other fonts I want to keep at their chosen size,

If you R click in Desktop and Properties Form or style? (I have a Dutch version, sorry for that) and advanced settings you will find the advanced Desktopsettings. Choose the menu that belongs to the menu fontsettings and change the fontsize.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post so hope it's in the right forum.

I have a client who is trying to set the text size under 'Display' to 150% so that it defaults to 150% for any user that logs in. It's for a boardroom computer with a massive 80" screen, and is used by many different people who will need the size to stay (so that they don't have to login - change - log out/in again).

Is there a way to do this through registry settings (or any other way)? So far I've only found user specific solutions which don't cover multiple profiles.

The system it is on is Window 7 Pro, using onboard Intel HD graphics.

Welcome to Seven Forums 1911geoff. You can set it via a registry change, or group policy. Use Option Two in this tutorial:
