    Is there a way to set the size of icons and text in Windows 10


    Hi forum,


    I have a new desktop with Windows 10 installed. My old desktop was on Windows 7, then upgraded to Windows 10 and things on the screen looked the same.


    This new desktop has Windows 10, but everything is smaller and hard to read. My old desktop had the icons and fonts larger - I was able to set them in Display in Windows 7 before it was upgraded - I chose the screen size and the fonts were S, M & L. It kept those same setting after the Windows 10 upgrade.


    I don't see any option to do that. Is there any way to make everything larger?


    Thanks a lot for your help!

    - T.S.BH

    :)

    It's possible that some settings were accidentally changed, affecting your icons and font size. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps to change the icon size:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Select View.

    Additionally, you can change the display size of texts and other items by following these steps:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Click Display settings.
    • Under Change the size of text, apps, and other items, drag the slider over to 100%.
