  1. Increase File Explorer Text Size without increasing anything else


    I have found a number of items on this topic but as yet have found nothing that solves the problem.
    It seems that the "text only" options that were available in earlier builds of Windows 10 have, as happens with most useful features, been phased out in subsequent builds.
    There are one or two third party "font change" solutions but unfortunately those seem to have other undesirable side effects.
    At the moment "Display settings/Change size of text, and other items" seems the best bet but it results in "the other items" being too large for my taste.
    Is there an answer to this problem?

    :)

    The above screen shot is the Explorer menu ribbon. How can I increase the text size of the menu ribbon. The settings under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display have no effect.

    increase SMS text size

    Unfortunately, you cannot increase the text size, but this has been asked for a lot.

    How to increase the size of (dialogue?) text


    I would like to change the size of text in certain windows. In this screenshot you can see a window with somewhat small text which I would like to enlarge. Ironically, it's explaining my options for increasing the size of text in some situations but it doesn't appear to offer an option to increase the size of itself. This however, is the text I want to increase the size of. I don't spend much time reading titlebars because there isn't a lot to read. There is much more reason to increase the size of text in these dialogues or whatever they're now called.
