    Desktop Icon Font Size Change


    In Windows 10 do the following to change font SIZE of Desktop icon fonts. 1.) On the desktop, right click on the mouse button 2.) Choose "Display Settings" 3.) On this page In the center, on the bottom, click "Advance Display Settings" 4.) On this page you do not see the entire page and you must scroll down some to see the entire page. After you scroll down, on the far left of the screen (second from bottom) click "Advanced sizing of fonts and other items" 5.) This is where you can make font sizing changes. In the middle of the screen there is a gray box entitled "Title bars." Press the arrow down button within this box 6.) In the list that comes up, select "Icons" 7.) Now, the box reads "Icons." To the immediate right of this box is another box, which is the font "size" box. In the font size box, press the arrow down button and change the size from the default size of 9, to 10, 11, 12, etc (10 is good). 8.) To the immediate right of the font size box is a "Bold" check box. Put your cursor in this box and click your mouse button. It will add a check mark within the box. 9.) You have done it! Close all the boxes you have opened. Now you can read the lettering under the icons.*Cool

    Desktop icons change size on every reboot

    UPDATE:

    To clarify.... 2 PCs, both running Windows 10 Home. Both use a Logitech MX 600 Cordless mouse with Logitech SetPoint software.

    Desktop -- Logitech SetPoint Control Center 6.68.83 -- DESKTOP ICONS CHANGE SIZE ON REBOOT.

    Laptop -- Logitech SetPoint Control Center 4.80.103 -- desktop icons DO NOT change size on reboot.

    When I disable SetPoint on the desktop, the icons do not change size on reboot. The problem is definitely related to version 6.68.83 on Windows 10. I tried uninstalling 6.68.83 and reinstalling -- same problem.

    I found SetPoint 4.80 online and downloaded it, but it wouldn't install. I tried W7 Compatibility Mode, but that didn't work either. (I'm not sure how I got 4.80 on the laptop, but it works fine.)

    I will try to find a previous version of SetPoint that W10 will allow me to install and hope an earlier version won't have the "icon change size" problem.
