    Print in Win 10 File Explorer much too small


    Hello all,
    New computer, new Win 10. Unfortunately, the print in the file explorer is microscopic. I can barely make it out. I've set the computer to a lower resolution so I can easily see the type in my Photoshop program and other programs. However, the file explorer print is still way too small.

    I've tinkered with advanced display settings and changed a bunch of things including title bars, menus, palette, message boxes, etc. Unfortunately, the file explorer remains too small to see. I do not want to use the magnifier all of the time.

    Is there any way to increase the print in the file explorer window without altering anything else? Does anyone else have this problem and if so, how did you rectify it?

    Thank you for the help.

    :)

  2. Personalising 'File Explorer' Environment and Display (Text Size Etc.)

    In file explorer Win 10, how can I change the size of the display text. Currently it is too small for me to read. Incidentally when I first loaded Win 10 it appeared normal. Thanks in anticipation, Peter

    "The printer is a DELL, and the model is a B1160w. My computer is a DELL Inspiron i5547, I use Internet Explorer 11, and have Windows 10, and I use Outlook.com. Hope that's enough info for you to advise me. The fonts are printing much too small--about 6
    point--but were printing at 12 point.

    Looking forward to your advice.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, Brink. Actually, I just discovered that changing the "Icon" in advanced settings changes the size of the type in explorer too, while not changing the size of the icon!
