Change font size without changing anything else

Q: Change font size without changing anything else

In WinXP, there was an option in the display settings where I could increase the font DPI. This ONLY increased the windows program fonts and affected little else. So the text under the icons was small, as was the text in various dialog boxes. However, it would have NO effect whatsoever on web pages. Images were unchanged, fonts were unchanged.

Is this possible in Windows 7? I want to see web pages at their original resolution and change them individually if I want to.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (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

A:Changing font size... not the icon

If changing the Display resolution isn't working (Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - Screen Resolution "Make text and other items larger or smaller") isn't doing it, Windows IE 8 has a tab in the lower right corner to jack up the resolution in the browser. For sites that have small text on parts of them, you can jump the resolution from 125% to 150, or better.

Here's another suggestion from Dwarf, in an earlier thread:

"Try this. Click Tools and Internet Options. On the General tab, under Appearance, click Accessibility. In the Formatting section, click to check (place a tick) the option Ignore font sizes specified on webpages and then click OK twice."

Hi...

Is there a way by which I can change the font type and size across Win 7 and all the programs/ apps (including IE9 RC) that are on my machine?

Thanks

A:Changing Font size/ type globally in Win 7

You're welcome to try all of the items in my list of methods to change fonts. You can pick and choose multiple settings, to see what works best for you.

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Click OK, then Apply, then OK.

7. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

8. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

9. Ease of Access Center ? Go to either: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Explore All Settings, and click on: Make this computer easier to see (Optimize Visual Display). OR go to Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

10. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

11. MS Office apps have a Zoom slider at the lower right hand corner of every page, that lets you increase the size of every Office app page, and it stays at that Zoom setting until/unless you change it.

12. MS Word templates: In the Ribbon or QuickAccess Bar select Styles, Normal, and when the little arrow appears, select Modify. Under Formatting you can change the default font size (12) to whatever size you wish. At the bottom of the screen select Only in this documents OR New documents based on this template. Click OK. You can change this font size setting for any/all other MS Word templates as well.

13. In IE and FireFox (for current use ? not permanent): press Ctrl and the + key to increase screen size. To reduce screen size press Ctrl and the ? key. (To restore screen size to 100% press Ctrl and 0.)

14. FireFox (permanent setting): go to Tools, Options, Content, and on that screen set the new default text size that you wish. Then, click Advanced and there are additional default text size settings. Plus, in the box that says "Minimum text size" select None, and down below, UNcheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above."

15. Magnifier ? To Magnify Entire Page: Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. When it comes up click the plus (+) sign. The entire page will magnify. OR go to: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Start Magnifier.

Is there a way to change the default font size of the Arabic font of choice in IE? I see where I can choose which font, but I don't see an option for its size, other than changing all fonts. Roman letters appear much larger than Arabic and to enlarge all to accomodate Arabic makes the Roman letters huge!

The alternative might be to locate an Arabic font that is inherently larger and add that to the list of options, but I don't know what font that would be nor how to add it to the list in IE8.

There has to be a way. Anyone have suggestions?

Good day.

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

Anyone have a solution for this?

I can change a lot of things using the appearances tabs but I can't change the Desktop Font Size The DPI? Font How using change Size Desktop I without do quot normal quot way to do this that Win provides is to change the DPI from to or custom HOWEVER doing that causes some programs to not work correctly For instance Titan Quest and I've heard in comments on gaming forums How do I change Desktop Font Size without using DPI? that other games sometimes have the same problem Changing DPI in Win causes the cursors to not work properly in many full-screen games and apps Changing DPI back to requires a reboot which is a pain SO Is there any way some registry tweak perhaps that will allow me to change the desktop font to a larger size Right now I'm having to resort to switching back and forth from x screen resolution when I can't read some things On a widescreen monitor that's a shameful waste of monitor space It seems there should be an easier way to do this

All of a sudden the font size in the display settings decided to revert to small, I had set it to medium when I first installed Windows 7 as I cannot read the small text size at high resolutions.
I have tried to set it back to medium, followed the prompt to log off, even restarted, but it just doesn't want to put the font back up to medium size, it stays small.

Any ideas? This is kind of driving me crazy :P

Are you trying to make just the font size bigger or the windows and everything in general?

for everything in general try this..

Desktop -> Right Click -> Personalize -> Display -> Choose Medium or Large, then you'll be prompted to Log off, so log off and then log back on it should all be a bit bigger depending on which setting you chose.

I'm running Windows 7 with IE8. I've rarely used IE, pretty much always using Firefox so my question is, is there a way to make the default font larger in IE8 without having to always start over after closing it? From what I see there are only small, medium, large and largest settings, no way to actually set the font size?
 

A:Is it possible to change the default font size in IE8?

There's an excellent page here on Browser Font settings: http://www.joedolson.com/articles/2008/03/refining-text-presentation/#ie678

But the size issue on Internet Explorer is very limited
Another option is to hold down Ctrl on the keyboard, and use your mouse scroll wheel button, to reduce and enlarge the entire web page

When using Firefox and maybe even in IE, I've observed that
many fonts are a light grey color making it very hard to read.

I have gone into the tools of Firefox and unchecked the
"allow pages to choose their own colors" and that does
give black fonts, but at the cost of losing other colors

How can I get rid of these light grey colored fonts and use

Hey all

I have my lappie jacked into a 37inch TV, it works great for gaming and watching movies and all that good stuff. But when it actually comes to reading the texts on screen it starts to become a strain on the eyes. I would like to be able to max out my resolution, that way I feel like I have more room on the screen as compared to having a lower reso, but in the case that I do use the max reso all of the texts on screen (such as desktop icon names) become very small and hard to read. Now I know there is an option to make the font size bigger, but when I do mess around with that setting to make the font size bigger it just returns everything to a lower state of resolution. So any way to make the font size bigger without affecting the resolution? Thanks for any input on this!

A:Is there a way to change the size of the default font in WordPad

To change the default font in WordPad, you would have to change the system configuration.
This is a quick way to change the font before you type anything in Wordpad. When you open WordPad, double click in the empty text area and you should see a thick selection bar instead of the thin cursor bar. This selects all, then go to the font size and change it to any size you want. Your font size should remain at the chosen setting for the entire time that you are working on the file.

I have a HP 500 Slate that I recently changed the ssd drive from 64gb to 128gb. The tablet ran faster and smoother. I was browsing the web the other day and I decided to change the font size in IE9. There did not appear to be a problem as I continued to surf the web. Today after starting up the computer and IE9, the computer locked up completely. There is a cont-alt-del button and that would not even work. After running chkdsk and fixing a few areas, I restarted the computer and IE9 and locked again. The computer ran fine as long as I did not start IE9. So I reset IE9 and all is well. It's just seems strange that just changing font size would cause the lockup. Virus scans and Malwarebytes found nothing.

A:IE9 locks up computer after change in font size

That sounds like a problem in IE 9 itself. During the beta stage and shortly after 9 was released I found myself downloading and reinstalling IE 9 to see any problems corrected.

The solution is not as easy since you will need a second browser installed in order to uninstall the present IE 9 upgrade over if you did upgrade over 8. Once IE is totally removed you proceed with the installation of the downloaded copy for a fresh go at 9.

By changing font size I assume that raising the view setting up from 100% to say 125% which one problem here not having the Favorites bar open and moved over to the left side is how to save the 125% setting. In IE 8 if IE was closed and a new window opened it would remember the 125% setting without the Favorites open.

Lately the only thing noticed would be IE 9 stalling and having to refresh itself or simply closed. Your problem could also be update related. A fresh install from a download will bring you back to Square #1 however where prompts for IE updates will be seen for those already presently on.

Greetings -
 
Since CHKDSK cannot scan the system partition (and other partitions under certain circumstances) from within Windows, you're given the option to run it at the next boot. All good. The font/display size used by CHKDSK under these circumstances prevents you from viewing all the data at once, however.
 
This isn't a huge issue, and certainly not a functional one. The first two lines are the ones usually lopped off/scrolled out of view. It *would* be convenient to see those lines though, particularly which drive is being scanned. I often run CHKDSK overnight, and can't tell from the display which drive it's working on.
 
Any ideas how to make the font smaller or the display area larger? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I've changed my theme and font sizes, however in the Control Panel the font size is really small... Does anyone know if this can be done and if so how do I do this?

Thanks, LL

A:Change font size in Control Panel folder

Here are ALL my hints for changing font size. Hopefully, at least one of them will work in your Control Panel.

1. This is the main setting tool for setting font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, at the very bottom, select Window. This is the setting that controls the Control Panel, but unfortunately, it does not give us an option to change the font size. But try some of the others to see if you can get the font size changed there.

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size – DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there’s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page.

4. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font styles specified on web pages, check boxes and click OK, then Apply, then OK.

5. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

6. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

7. Ease of Access Center – Go to: Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

8. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

9. Magnifier – For those instances when you need to magnify a certain portion of the screen - go to Start, in the Search pane, type in "magnifier" + click the program at the top. (To read more about Magnifier go to Start, click "Help & Support" on the right hand side, type in "magnifier.") Magnifier is actually located at: Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, Magnifier.

(Open Internet Explorer, Internet Options, Appearance, Fonts, How to ignore present fonts - The notes refer you to numbers 3, 5, 6 and 8).

To increase font size permanently in FireFox: go to Tools, Options, Content, and on that screen set the new default text size that you wish. Then, click Advanced and there are additional default text size settings. Plus, in the box that says "Minimum text size" select None, and down below, UNcheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above."

Hi,

Would anyone please be able to tell me what the default font type and size is used by Windows 7 with Aero activated and if it is possible to change this?

I have been hunting round the control panels menus but cannot locate these settings. I can find how to scale them re dpi etc but cannot locate the size and type settings.

I use outlook express and when I cut from a previously sent email & paste into new email, somehow the font size is changed to a larger size. Even though the original message has the same 10 pt font size, when I paste it into new message also with 10 pt. size it come out 12 pt. It never did this before...I must have accidentally changed some font setting & not been aware. Anyone help?

I hate that the menu bar has been replaced by ribbons in Windows Live Mail. The only way I know how to change the font size of the messages in my Inbox home screen is to go to Tools > Options, which I cannot do because I don't know how to access the Tools menu without a menu bar. Please tell me how to view/change my options with this new ribbons system. Thanks so much.

After the Win10 Sticky Notes updates I now cannot do a copy and paste over from WordPad with a different font size. My eyesight will not allow for me to see the small font that comes with Sticky Notes. Anyone else with this problem?

After I read a msg in the Inbox of Outlook (Vista Ultimate 64) the "From" "Message" and "Received" information in that line gets very small and turns red. How can I increase the font size so that it isn't so hard to read?

A:Outlook read messages font size change

I just realized that this happens when I have flagged the message. If it isn't flagged, it doesn't turn red and get very small. Still would like to have the font bigger, even if it is red.

Does anyone know how to change the font size on all comments within a given worksheet and workbook? It looks to me like you can only change them one at a time; we have hundreds, if not thousands of comments that need to be changed. Thanks.

Dim cmt As Comment
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
For Each cmt In ws.Comments

.Size = 12
End With
Next cmt

Have successfully installed Anniversary Version on a Lenovo Laptop E525. Now need to change & enlarge the Icon Font, in order to use the screen. Best I can do is a solid white font of indeterminate size accompanied by a fuzzy shadow. Right now it is not useable, unless I use a Hand magnifying glass - which is absurd. There must be a way. Is there?
