    Decrease the font size in XAML apps

    I am used to the default font size of UI elements from Windows 7 and the current size in desktop apps in Windows 10. Thus, the fonts in XAML apps is way too big and takes up most of my screen on my smaller laptop screen.

    How can I decrease the font size in these apps?

    All I can seem to find are ways to change the font size on desktop apps or to increase the font size in XAML apps.

    Changing text and apps size to 125% zooms in the browsers

    Hi Viktor,

    You can try to reboot the computer once and check if the settings are restored.

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

    To decrease the size of text, apps and other items, you can 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 the left side to decrease the size.
    Also make sure that you have set the screen resolution to at least 1024x768 or more.

    • Right click on the desktop screen.
    • Click on Display settings and select Advanced display settings.
    • Click on Resolution list and select at least 1024 X 768 size or above.
    • Click on Apply to save the setting and check if the issue persist.

    Let us know how it goes.
