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.)

You could try holding down the 'control' key and using the scroll wheel on your mouse to alter text size.

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?

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 :

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.

Not sure if I accidentally changed a setting that affects my everyday browsing while I was messing with the printer settings.

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.

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.

I signed online a few days ago, and I noticed something happened to the size and color of most of the text or words when I am online. They are all super small and almost see through blue. Most words I can see fine, but when I access websites, most of the information or text I can't see. I have tried accessing all the help within the MSN support as well as changing or looking at Internet Explorer. I can't see to find anything to change the text back to its normal size and color.

The text and color on all my other applications are fine, even while on this website, the text is fine, so not sure what the problem is. If anyone could help, I and my wife would greatly appreciate it.

For the font size, go to View/Text Size and set it to Medium (or larger, if you'd prefer).

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??

I am using Vista and I have Norton Security 09 on my laptop. For some reason I can't change the size of my fonts in any of my programs. When I try to change the font I hear a pinging noise. PLEASE HELP!

A:Can't change font size

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...

How to change with W7 the font size on dialog buttons, menues, for folders, etc? I cant find even the place to do it. On vista it was where themes were listed, under theme selection was drop down menu where could select font size. Where it is on Windows 7?
I don't mean DPI, I only want to change font size for folder names and the space between folders.

A:Changing font size, how?

It is a bit hidden but here it is Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance or just right click and go to personalization and once you are in color and appearance you find what you are after in advanced appearance settings.

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

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".

A:Basic font size

instead of another post, it seemed quicker to reply to myself with another key example. When I am in Internet explorer, the font size is fine or almost too large. When I go to the same website on Google Chrome, it is too small, almost unreadable. . . . so I don't use Google Chrome, but I sense there is a simply font enlargement keystroke function I should learn.

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).

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?

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 then click OK twice.

A:Web Page font size

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.

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.

A:Trying to set font size to 150% for all users

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