  1. Default Fonts and text sizes


    I recently had a computer updated to Windows 10. I had previously been using Windows XP I believe or Windows 7. I was wondering what the default changes have been with text over that time. All of my text on my desktop is different and all of my font sizes on my browsers are different. They are actually making me feel physically sick from looking at them now. What are the old standards, so I can adjust my screen. Thank you
