    You can adjust the height of the Start Menu regardless of how many or few items are in there.

    start menu problem

    Hi there

    I had the same problem - the Link at the top of the thread works (even in a VM). You need to strtch by a DISCRETE amount say 3 cm on a typical screen then it will expand. It doesn't expand like a "Normal" window re-size. You won't see the menu expand dynamically as you move the mouse like normal window resizing but it will expand once you've finished -- it's confusing.

    I don't think though you can do anything about the menu text size though -- If I keep looking at that I'll probably need to get some glasses as thick as old fashioned Milk Bottles. !!!

    Cheers

    Before I have to borrow your old fashioned milk bottles, is there any hope of increasing THE TEXT SIZE ​on the start menu????? Thrashzone said he had posted info on this in his reply to me, but I cannot find it. Maybe I'm just klutzy getting around this forum. Please help if you can. Thanks, Dick...*Doh*Doh*Doh*Doh

    i think this is what you're after
    right click on desktop>personalize>display. click the check box to let you choose scaling levels. here you can change the size of all items

    jamos316... thanks for the reply, but I've tried every option under personalize. They only affect the "desktop" environment, not the start menu or tiles. What I'm looking for is a way to change the font type AND size on the start menu (left click on win 10 logo bottom left). The text size is WAY too small and is a mega-eyestrain!
