    Win7 Colour and Appearance/Text Control Within Win10 Display Text


    Hello all, I hope everyone is keeping well and safe! I just have a really quick question for everyone.

    Within Win7, you had a setting called "Windows Colour and Appearance" found within "Control Panel & Personalisation" Here you were able to choose a "on screen item or element" using the dropdown, and then individually change settings for said element if you wished.
    For example, change the font size, colour, type for a popup or button. (Kindly see attached some of the screen shots) I have poor eyes and I had found that feature super super helpful.

    With Win10, If I simply change the "screen scaling" value, this changes absolutely Everything. This is no good as some things don't require changing and they become super enlarged, to match the scaling value.
    I know within "Ease of Access, Display" you are able to make text bigger, but this is also no good at all, as it creates the same issue as above, "Making absolutely everything bigger". (In edition to All text becoming bigger, then of course the window boundaries, popup, menus all increase)

    Does anyone know of or might have any ideas at all, either by using the registry, third party programs or anything really, of a way that I would be able to individually change the text for different elements in Win10, Just like we could do in Win7?

    Device Specs: Dell-XPS15-7590, Win10 Pro1909, 64bit, OS-Build: 18363.900, Intel17-9750H, 16GB Ram.

    Many thanks in advance to any any assistance at all! Win7 Colour and Appearance/Text Control Within Win10 Display Text :)

    To get to the ClearType take an entry to the Control Panel and select the Display option.

    A ClearType Text Tuner window will appear on your screen. Select the checkbox Turn on ClearType and click Next button to go to the next step

    List of tooltip texts

    • Do not translate the IDS_ strings, only what's inside the "s
    • \n is a newline character that acts like "return" is pressed. so text\n\ntext2 adds a blank line between "text" and "text2"
    • %s is replaced by some inserted text, you may move the %s to other positions within the text, but if multiple %s are present they will be inserted in the same order in all languages
