I want to increase the type font display size globally, for all applications & windows features, but I want to preserve the smaller desktop icon size. Is there any way to adjust them independently?

I know about the advanced display settings for window color & appearance, and that has some good settings, but it is not sufficient, because it does not change most instances of text as it displays in applications.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Any way to change type size but NOT icon size?

Here's my whole list of font size change settings, one of which might provide the answer for you. You've probably tried some of them, but see if there's something here that might change the font size on those icons, without changing the size of the icons themselves:

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

Hello,
I've been trying to find a way to change the default icon size in Windows 7. My machine defaults to 'small' icon size, but I prefer the 'large' one, in just about every case. Instead of needing to manually change the size for each individual folder, is there a way I can set 'large' to be the default for all folders? I couldn't find anything in the control panel and haven't been able to find a post about setting a default size in the other forum posts yet.

-thanks!

I've run through most everything about folder customization. I have played with all the options for years and already do all the things dealt with in other posts I've read here. I've even gone a step farther and edited file associations, locations of Windows XP Folders, swap file, number of BagMRU folders to remember, and other tweaks. Not bragging, just telling you I know all the easy answers.

For a couple of years now I've tried to find out how to set the default folder opening size to my default. I get really tired of windows opening a 1/4 screen size folder to show 1 or 2 files and a lot of empty white space unless I change that folder by custom and don't go beyond the MRU limit in the future. After all, the BagMRU limit doesn't apply to 400 or 2000 or 5000 unique folders, it applies to how many have been opened in the last string of folder openings. Opening 3 folders 10 times uses up 30 of those memory settings. That's why it defaults to the generic settings after so long for folders you've opened in the past if you don't open it at least once during that long string of openings ovr the last several months.

What I want to do is set the windows default to a specific X by Y pixel size for all new openings and allow changes to be saved as currently done. That way when I get past my limit folders will open smaller and I can expand them if I choose.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm trying to get my first win 7 system set up. And quite frustrated. I've found the usual "large Icon / Small Icon" setting. It's already on small for the task bar. Those are the size I want, just like I had them in XP. After a lot of confusion & searching I finally found I had to enable quicklaunch, and did so. But the smegging icons are 2-3 times the size of the task bar ones. Secondary annoyance I have: I prefer the task bar vertically on the left of the screen. It won't get nice and narrow like it did in win XP. Is there any fix for this? Thank you, Dave

We are getting ready to have house guests, and I have created an account for them to use. I would like to create a desktop shortcut icon which is roughly double the size of the other icons to draw attention to it. The target file will be a basic readme with a couple of short rules for using my computer.

If I cannot find a way to create the single larger icon, I will resort to another idea I have in mind. That idea is to type the rules in Word and use Snipping Tool to capture the text and use the resulting image as a desktop background.

A:Change the size of the All Programs Folders

I haven't found a way to do this myself, but I have found a workaround.

I pin the programs I use most often to the start menu list. Not only are the icons a bit larger there, but the programs that keep a list of recently opened items and/or have menus which would normally show up through a right click on the taskbar have their own menus while in this list. Theoretically, you could pin all of the items in the All Programs list to the start menu itself. The only problem is that you cannot pin folders.

Once they're pinned to the Start Menu, you can use two sizes. One is a tiny bit bigger than the standard All Programs list, the other is much larger than the list.

To change the size of icons in the Start Menu List:

Start Menu - Use Small or Large Icons

Right Click Taskbar > Properties > Start Menu > Customize > Scroll Down > Check "Use Large Icons"

I'm sure most of you are familiar with the "change your view" option in Windows 7. It gives the folders, apps, and program shortcuts, (or icons) in a certain folder a larger view size. Using this "change your view" option in the top right hand corner of the explorer when you select a folder, you have the option to change the view of all the icon in that folder to Extra Large, Large, List View, Details, Tiles, Content, etc. Currently when I change this to Large in one folder, any other folder I go to remains in the default "details" view. What I am looking for is a way to change the way ALL folders look. Is there a way in control panel I can set this for all folders, or do I have to manually change the view for each folder I want changed. Thanks in advance for the information guys. Cheers!

I can easily change the size and font but can't find how to set it as the new Default setting. Can it be done?

Using Mail for Win 10 for first time, as that is what appeared for my Outlook email account. I found today that when using either CC or BCC a 'Return' occurs immediately after entering an email address, thereby moving the cursor to the line below, requiring moving the cursor back to that original line so that another email address can be entered, and again and again.. Never saw this before so probably/hopefully a fix is coming.

While typing an email I touched the Caps Lock key mid-sentence and typed one capital letter in error. I touched that key turning off the caps lock function and the light went off. But from that point on I could only type in CAPS regardless of what I did. I had to close email and restart it to have it return to normal. Anyone else find that to be the case? How to fix?

A:Is there a way to change the size of the default font in WordPad

To change the default font in WordPad, you would have to change the system configuration.
This is a quick way to change the font before you type anything in Wordpad. When you open WordPad, double click in the empty text area and you should see a thick selection bar instead of the thin cursor bar. This selects all, then go to the font size and change it to any size you want. Your font size should remain at the chosen setting for the entire time that you are working on the file.

Hi,
This view size is controlled by HKU specific user registry. Thus it can't be mapping to another user account.
If you insist, there is a complex workaround(However I wouldn't like to recommend you use this method):
Copy the following registry value to place another user's registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU
Note: It can't be imported, just copy its value.

What I'm trying to achieve. I downloaded a nice little program called Folderico and it allows me to apply an icon image to a folder. I wanted to increase the windows explorer icon size to 192x192 and have the folder (with applied icon image) look something like this:



The problem. Whenever I change the icon size, via registry tweak, everything else changes too. I don't want the icons on the desktop to change size nor do I want the icons in the menu and tool bar to change, just the folder so that it'll look exactly like the picture above.

Windows Vista has some sort of slider feature that will let the user change the icon size for just the folder quite easily but I'm using Windows XP. Are there other registry tweaks that some of you could suggest? Is there some soft of Vista hacked version of their explorer that I can use on Windows XP?

I'd really appreciate any help that I can get on this. Thanks in advance.

I know this is rather simple, but searching results in far too many unanswered topics. Therefore, I gave up on that, and is requesting your help.

Just to clarify, this has nothing to do with remembering the size of individual folders, or folder views. Apply to All Folders doesn't work for this problem.

Now, the issue is that I find Explorer windows far too small on my 1920x1200 screen and wish to resize every single folder on my system, including newly created ones, into 1200x800 instead of 800x600.

All solutions will be considered and all help (=/= every type of post) will be appreciated. I would prefer not to use programs that has to run in the background for this, but if that is the only real solution then please recommend something that uses the least resources as possible.
 

A:Solved: Change DEFAULT Explorer Window Size

It is in Folder Options, and Apply to All Folders does apply.

In Folder Options, View tab, put a check in

Launch folder windows in a separate process
Remember each folder's view settings
Restore previous folder windows at logon

Click OK. Open Windows Explorer. Use the mouse to size the folder the way you want it. Close the window. When you next open Explorer, it should be the same size as you left it.

If not, you have other problems.

When windows explorer opens up for my CD Drive it is always in a window too small for me.

I have tried resizing then holding Shift and also Shift/Ctrl while clicking on the close button but this does not work.

I have searched MS Knowledge base and can find nothing.

I do not want it maximised (which I can do with a short cut) - just bigger than the default size.

Is there any registry setting?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @Blarg welcome to tenforums.com!

You can, but you need to disable 'Snapping' in Settings/System/Multitasking first, then manually size the window and close it, then it will re-open as you closed it, (pertains to the last windows closed)
However, it's just as easy, if not easier to 'Snap' them to half as you need by grabbing the window header and moving it all the way to edge of the screen.
