    1803 update made fonts look silly


    Just got updated to version 1803 and the appearance of windows and menus has changed quite dramatically.
    I have a Lenovo laptop with a high dpi display so have been using a display scale of 200% to make it readable. This has been fine in all previous versions of Windows but after the most recent update everything is "out of proportion". Previously, right-click menus, Title bars, windows contents were alll pretty consistent in size. Now the explorer windows, most right click menus etc. are comically large while control panel windows, browser and app windows are how they used to be. This includes the right-click menus over apps (between task view and hidden icons) so not all menus are borked.

    Somehow, the font also looks different with lines "squashed up". Display Scaling is the only adjustment available now so I don't know how to restore things to how they were.

    Screenshots for 100, 150, 200%:

    Hello,

    I found these steps in this forum from back in 2010:

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you to try these steps and check whether it helps in fixing your issue.

    Open font settings by clicking on start, click on control panel, and then click on appearance and personalization, under fonts click on change font settings. And select the font size.

    Step 2:

    If you’re trying to change windows font size then please follow the steps below:

    To change Windows fonts

    1. Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type window color, and then click Change window colors and
    metrics
    .

    2. In the Item list, click the part of Windows that you want to change the font for. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list. Then, make any of the following changes:

    · In the Font list, click the font that you want to use.

    · In the Size list, click the font size that you want.

    · In the Color list, click the font color that you want.

    3. Repeat these steps for each item that you want to make changes to, and then click OK.

    Does that help?
