    Changing Word ribbon font size in Windows 10


    In Windows 7 it was easy to increase the font size if the ribbon in MS Office Word: Right click the desktop / personalize + 2 more clicks and a window opens where you can change each and every part of the window: Title bar font size and color, menu font size, icon size, etc etc. Increasing menu font size (or palette font size, I don't remember) automatically increased the Word ribbon font size.

    In Windows 8 it was pretty much the same.

    But in Windows 10 they must have hidden it very deep, I can't find it (and I badly need to increase the ribbon font size, I'm not getting younger....).

    Please help.

    :)

  2. Customize font sizes for menu bars, ribbons, etc.


    Since the new Windows update installed last night, all of my menu/ribbon font sizes have gotten very small. I cannot locate the place to change menu font sizes. I believe it was under display before this. I am able to change the overall display setting but all of the different menus and ribbons in my programs have reverted to a very small font. Part of display functions used to allow font size changes for separate components of the window such as menu bar, toolbar, etc. I can no longer find that option. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks
