Customizing the appearance of Windows 10

Enlarging text

If you want Windows interface text to be displayed in a larger size to help you read things more easily, you can use a System setting to choose a new text size. This setting affects the text in Windows elements: dialog boxes, Settings windows, the taskbar, the Start menu, and so forth. It does not control text size in individual apps.

Make text larger

  1. In Settings, choose System, and then click Display.

  2. Go to the Scale and Layout section, pull down the Change the Size of Text, Apps, and Other Items list, and select the setting you desire.

  3. To select a different size for text and other items, click Custom Scaling and enter a custom amount.
