    App icons increase in size


    The app icons on my PC increase in size every time l turn on my PC. I know how to reset them, right click, click view etc. but why does it keep happening? My google page is ridiculously enlarged and l don't know how to reset that.

  2. Font Size

    How can I increase the font size in Windows without screen magnification increasing as well? I know how to go into settings--display--scale, but this increases the image as well as the font size. All I want to do is to increase the font size. For example,
    on the desktop there are icons with titles, and the titles are too small although the icon is enlarged. Thank you.

  3. Font size on windows 10 desktop displays

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you want to increase the desktop icons' size.

    You can change the desktop icons' size by just pressing and holding the Ctrl key and scrolling up/down on your mouse.

    To increase the size of text, apps and other item, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + I to open Settings.
    • Click on System and Display tab.
    • Under Change size of text, apps and other items, move the size bar towards right side to increase the size.

    Hope this helps you. Let us know if you need further assistance. We'll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    App icons increase in size

    Hi Paul56,
    Welcome to the forums, if your screen has a separate power switch, switch that on before you start your PC, you can also leave the screen in standby mode and see whether it helps.
