Adjust The Text Size On Your Screen

New computers these days are coming with very high resolution monitors and the text displayed on your screen may be difficult to read but you can make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You do this by increasing the dots per inch (DPI) scale. You can also decrease the DPI scale to make text and other items on your screen smaller, so that more information fits on the screen. Here’s how.

  1. Click the Start Orb and start typing Personalization. in the search box. You won’t need to type in the whole word usually just the first few letters.
  2. Click Personalization under Programs at the top of the Start menu.
  3. Click Adjust font Size DPI under Tasks.
  4. Accept the UAC if prompted.
  5. In the DPI scaling screen you can choose the Large Scale 120 DPI or click custom DPI to better control how big or small you go, just click the ruler and drag it to the size you want. When you let go the text will resize. Click Ok when finished. You Will need to restart windows for the settings to take effect.
