  3. Font size on windows 10 desktop displays

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you want to increase the desktop icons' size.

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

    To increase the size of text, apps and other item, 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 right side to increase the size.

    Hope this helps you. Let us know if you need further assistance. We'll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Example of app with the problem: Text relates to file list on the left side (list view of file explorer for Fast Stone Image Viewer to open and edit)
    Toolbar is horizontal across top. They all stay tiny no matter what I do
