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.)

Hi, I just built my parents a new home theater computer and installed Windows 7 onto it rather than good old XP. They have this computer hooked up to their television and would like to increase the font size for better readability (from a distance).

Increasing DPI increases the font size but it also increases window sizes to ridiculous sizes making them taller than the screen so you cannot click buttons at the bottom of the window.

They have Windows 7 Ultimate x64, how can I increase the font sizes without increasing DPI?

Having just changed my monitor resolution to 1280x1064, as understandable, the monitor display contents shrunk considerably. I know of options to increase fonts and icon sizes on the desktop and the Ctrl/+ to increase them on browsers.

I have my display setting at 100% (small), because I maintain websites and want a 1:1 font relationship with viewers. I have tried the magnifier, but it isn't what I want.

Basically I am ok, except for application fonts, which are now tiny and don't adhere to the Ctrl/+ option. Does anyone know of a quick way to view larger fonts on applications, without having to change the display setting to either 125% or 150%, which then requires a reboot.

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 am using windows backup for my users libraries, and a system image.
I have selected to keep only the latest backup.

Every time the machine backs up the file/s size on my backup drive increases.
After a couple of weeks the drive is full and I have to start all over again.

Why is the size increasing? I know that sometimes I have deleted files rather than add them.

Are you sure there isn't something you've installed that has increased the size? Maybe things like windows updates? Do you remove temporary files on a regular basis? That could make a difference too. I suggest using CCleaner to clean up temporary files;

I am facing a very amusing issue.

So it is like being short on space some how i managed to free 60 GB of space on my HDD.

But very soon i started facing isue on utorrent.

After some time it gives me an error message : Error : No space left on device.

I checked and yes there actually was no space.Then made up some space and then it resumed.

But i see the more the torrent is downloading the more disk is getting full.

So i went ahead to see the size of torrent folder, and i see the attached size.

So i see the disk on space is much less than size and this size is increasing as i am progressing with the torrent.

Can anyone tell me if what is happening and do i need twice the size of torrent? because i can't.

Any help would be appreciated.

No not possible. Only way is to adjust the dpi settings in the control panel, and you do it by:
1. Type in 'display' and press enter.
2. Choose the 125% option to make everything bigger.

I'm needing some help on the opposite problem most people have. While most want the corner gestures disabled, I'm actually looking to increase the size.

Long story short, I'm running an old touch screen in a mobile environment. And while I see great benefit to using Windows 8.1, I'm having issues with getting it to cooperate with my older LCD touch screen. If I could increase the size of the corner gesture, it would solve most my problems.

I've already increased the MouseCornerClipLength in the registry to 20, which is the max this will go. My screen just doesn't like the small tolerance Microsoft has given to bring up these gestures. I can cheat the calibration to make it work, but then it throws off the whole screen.

A:Increasing corner gestures size?

Welcome to Windows EightForums, gsxr1181.

I believe calibration would relate to adjusting colors, not size. I think this would have more to do with your monitor driver since it’s older and adjusting the “centering” so as to increase the margins so it senses your finger. It probably works good with the mouse, correct?

Another thing to consider is screen resolution. Have you tried adjusting that? Go to Control Panel > Display or right click the Desktop and choose “Screen resolution”.

All in all, it may be time to upgrade your monitor.

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 :

My font seems out of whack from web page to web page. Giant bold headers on some and overlapping links on others.

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

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.

For some inexplicable reason the font size in OE messages that I print suddenly gets larger. I do not know how to restore them to their previous size except by using System Restore. I'm sure there must be a better method than this. I'm using XP.

A:Font Size

To change the font sizes in Outlook Express, you make the changes in Internet Explorer

If the font is too large or too small, change the text size in Internet Explorer by clicking View | Text Size | select larger or smaller as required, and then try printing again.

System Restore is not needed for this fix, which should be much simpler

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.

Is there a way to set just the font size without windows trying to enlarge everything? In windows xp selecting a bigger font size only affected window's fonts and icons. In windows 7 selecting a bigger font size zooms everything, including other applications like open office and opera that cannot handle it and look blurry. Am i the only one with this problem?

It depends on the application and how they want to react to DPI increases.
There may be options available in the applications to configure that.

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.

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 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.

Hi James,
From Internet Explorer, try going to Tools/Internet Options and click the "Colors" button in the lower left-hand corner. Check the box for "Use Windows colors". Click "OK" on the next two screens. For the font size, go to View/Text Size and set it to Medium (or larger, if you'd prefer). If neither of those suggestions works, try going to Tools/Internet Options and clicking the "Accessibility" button in the lower right-hand corner. Make sure none of those boxes are checked.

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.
