    Cannot change Windows 10 font size with text size increase


    Hi, I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I'm having some great difficulty in upsizing the default font size. I've tried changing the font size, but I'm only afforded the option to increase it to 24 (which the current font size is not). Apart from changing a file in regedit to change the default font which I learned from this link; http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/ch...ont-windows-10 , I don't know what might be the culprit behind this problem. I have tried upsizing to 125%-150% but some applications look blurry as a result. I would prefer to increase the font size and nothing else. Any suggestions?

  2. Text size

    The font or text size does not adjust in Windows 10. The slide bar shows text increase at 175% but no appreciable change. Facebook font size is either 7 or 9 and cannot be adjusted?

    the text size in messaging and phonebook

    Sorry, there is no way to change the text size. Not that it helps you, but Windows Phone 8 does allow you to increase the font size.

    I think the culprit is likely my mod to regedit. Unfortunately, I did not save a back up. Would anybody know how to undo this change to regedit after implemented?
