Script to set size of font, DPI, and change only text size

Q: Script to set size of font, DPI, and change only text size

Windows 10.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

Probably to get started I could use a "settings display" script.

Help, please

I would like to know how I can change the desktop text size, and font type from a fresh reload of XP Pro?

I assume that any text size change would also go to IE, as the text size is the same on my desktop as it is while using IE.

Does anyone know what the default settings are for text size, and name of font type for XP Pro?

On two laptops, one has horizontal width of 12.25" screen with resolution 1366x768; the other has horizontal width of 15.125" screen with resolution 1900x1080.

So 12.25" screen pixel width is 12.25/1366; 15.125" screen pixel width is 15.125/1900. Pixel width difference is about 12.7%.

On IE 8/9, majority of texts on 12.25" screen have font size 11 while same texts on 15.125" screen have font size 8 or smaller (font style appears to be Arial). The font size difference now is about 37.5%. Why is that?

The Page Zoom setting is 100% and Page Text Size is Medium on both systems.

I let my dad use my laptop for the week as I was away at a Christian singing camp, and when I came back, he told me he accidentally pressed some button that caused the text on google searches to be abnormally large and the text on other websites i.e. ancestry.com to be too small, and well I notice this as well, but it's only on firefox. I suffer no such issues on other browsers, nor does it affect my computer, so I consider this isolated to just firefox itself, and I was wondering how I would go about fixing this.

All my dad said was he accidentally pressed a key on my keyboard and it messed it all up. He doesn't know enough about computers to know what he could've pressed.

Hi there, first post for me.

I have a Mac book with boot camp 1.2 installed on it. It hasn’t given me any problems up until today.

I turned it on and loaded up Simply Accounting. I noticed that the program window fonts were too small. I thought this had to be a simply accounting problem, as i didn’t notice anything odd with my other Windows font in windows explorer.

After doing some exploring i found that it was not only Simply Accounting, but other windows programs were affected as well.

I looked in the typical windows appearance settings and saw that all was untouched. I’m stumped.

Here are a couple pics i took with my camera. They aren’t that great, but my print screen function doesn’t work because i am using boot camp 1.2 and it doesn’t have this function mapped yet. I am in the process of upgrading.

I have opened Filemon and Simply Accounting so you can see the font size is ridiculously small.

The fonts and work area look like they are squished... very strange.
Any ideas ?

Thanks

Though this is actually a Firefox related question, I post it here because it's concerned with code examples that are posted here.

On a laptop even with a decent size screen is there any way to increase the font size of text of applications installed via "classic windows install" such as Office / photoshop etc. (Not Metro apps).

When using Firefox and maybe even in IE, I've observed that
many fonts are a light grey color making it very hard to read.

I have gone into the tools of Firefox and unchecked the
"allow pages to choose their own colors" and that does
give black fonts, but at the cost of losing other colors
on a web page.

How can I get rid of these light grey colored fonts and use
black fonts when on the internet while still maintaining colors ?

Hello all...this is my first post, I'm a computer novice...so please bear with me.

While using MS Word, I've accidentally hit a combination of keys (possibly CTRL, windows START, ALT and others were involved) and it has reduced the font size to something like a 2 or 3 point when it actually says in the tool bar it's still 12 point. This occurs whenever I open a new MS Word document or go to write a new email using MS Outlook or go to reply or forward an email, it minimises the signature too!!!

Now when I go to open up a previous email or previous Word document, the orginal font size is maintained. So really, it only occurs when writing new documents or email replies. I don't believe it's a zoom issue, because as I type this, the IE page looks normal.

I've tried rebooting my machine, no go, tried various key combinations e.g. Ctrl + Shift + P etc, etc...no joy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm currently running on Windows XP with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 6.0.

At some point, my account's font size or style has been changed to a larger size, making some websites difficult to read or to load differently. I would like to change the size back to normal.

I have tried: changing font sizes through the above "view" and "text size" buttons, holding down "CTRL" and using my mouse to scroll through text sizes, changing text accessibility through the interent options, and STILL I'm getting nowhere.

I noticed that these above changes effected most text size, but did NOt effect hyperlink text size.

Let me give an example:
The first attached file is a screenshot, entitled "screenproblem," that shows a website with my problem. The second file is a screenshot, entitled "noproblemscreen," that shows how the website normally loads. I got this screenshot by logging into another account on the SAME computer that obviously does not have this format issue. As you can see, there are many differences in how the two accounts interpret the site-- my account formats the site with no background colors, hyperlinks are enlarged, etc.

How can I fix this? It's very aggrevating and I cannot think of how to do it!

Many thanks.

I can change a lot of things using the appearances tabs, but I can't change the Desktop Font Size.

The "normal" way to do this that Win7 provides is to change the DPI from 100% to 125, 150 or custom. HOWEVER, doing that causes some programs to not work correctly. For instance Titan Quest, and I've heard in comments on gaming forums that other games sometimes have the same problem. Changing DPI in Win7 causes the cursors to not work properly in many full-screen games and apps. Changing DPI back to 100% requires a reboot, which is a pain.

SO... Is there any way, some registry tweak, perhaps, that will allow me to change the desktop font to a larger size?

Right now, I'm having to resort to switching back and forth from 800x600 screen resolution when I can't read some things. On a widescreen monitor, that's a shameful waste of monitor space. It seems there should be an easier way to do this.

We use a UNIX based application called FACTS. We are running WinXPsp2. I was asked if I could get it setup to print checks to a laser printer (lj4300), rather than a dot matrix. With some help from our FACTS support I was able to get the checks printing on the laserjet. In FACTS utilities there are four print drivers available (2 protrait and the same two in landscape). The drivers are:

HP Laser : 10 cpi, 6 lpi, Portrait HPLASER (this prints too large)
HP Laser : 12 cpi, 8 lpi, Landscape HPLAND
HP Laser : 16.6 cpi, 12 lpi, Landscape HPSMLND
HP Laser : 16.6 cpi, 12 lpi, Portrait HPSMALL (this prints too small)

I need something in the middle but have no idea how to achieve this. My support is washing their hands of the issue and have told me the font needs changed from the printer console and FACTS will pull the changes in. To me this would mean that where ever inside the printer console I would see those four drivers listed and I would be able to add a 5th.

Does this make sense to anyone else? If so, can you explain it to me so that I can understand as well? If there is a place on the printer to make these changes, where is it? Will these changes not affect other printing (Windows for example)?

Thank you very much for any insight!

Greetings -
 
Since CHKDSK cannot scan the system partition (and other partitions under certain circumstances) from within Windows, you're given the option to run it at the next boot. All good. The font/display size used by CHKDSK under these circumstances prevents you from viewing all the data at once, however.
 
This isn't a huge issue, and certainly not a functional one. The first two lines are the ones usually lopped off/scrolled out of view. It *would* be convenient to see those lines though, particularly which drive is being scanned. I often run CHKDSK overnight, and can't tell from the display which drive it's working on.
 
Any ideas how to make the font smaller or the display area larger? Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hey guys, I was wondering how you can change the font size of the windows clock (lower right, on the task bar). I have it two rows high, and I would like it to say the name of the day as well, instead of just the Time and numeric date without making it larger vertically. I think that making the font size smaller will allow this to happen, but I am unsure how to change the size of this particular font.

I'm new here so if this question is not in the right place, feel free to move it...

Thanks in advance!

A:Change Windows Clock's font size

Welcome to the forum!

I don't think changing the font will allow that. That is a setting and I cant make it to show the name of the day either.
Ubuntu does show it.

Hi

I Win XP, I need to change the font size of File/folder names, titles etc. frequently.
I usually do it by going to Display Properties > Appearance Tab > Click Advanced button > select Icon. Then I can change the font size.

Basically I need to change the between two font sizes frequently. Is there a command line or shortcut I can use to do this.

In other word i would like to be able to have two shortcut on my desktop that I can double click that would change the font size. One shortcut to change the font size to 14point and one to change it to 10point

Thanks

Is there a way to change the font size in Windows Explorer?

Control-Scroll just changes the icon size it seems. It doesn't change the word size with it like in Internet Explorer.

Thanks.

I have a HP 500 Slate that I recently changed the ssd drive from 64gb to 128gb. The tablet ran faster and smoother. I was browsing the web the other day and I decided to change the font size in IE9. There did not appear to be a problem as I continued to surf the web. Today after starting up the computer and IE9, the computer locked up completely. There is a cont-alt-del button and that would not even work. After running chkdsk and fixing a few areas, I restarted the computer and IE9 and locked again. The computer ran fine as long as I did not start IE9. So I reset IE9 and all is well. It's just seems strange that just changing font size would cause the lockup. Virus scans and Malwarebytes found nothing.

A:IE9 locks up computer after change in font size

That sounds like a problem in IE 9 itself. During the beta stage and shortly after 9 was released I found myself downloading and reinstalling IE 9 to see any problems corrected.

The solution is not as easy since you will need a second browser installed in order to uninstall the present IE 9 upgrade over if you did upgrade over 8. Once IE is totally removed you proceed with the installation of the downloaded copy for a fresh go at 9.

By changing font size I assume that raising the view setting up from 100% to say 125% which one problem here not having the Favorites bar open and moved over to the left side is how to save the 125% setting. In IE 8 if IE was closed and a new window opened it would remember the 125% setting without the Favorites open.

Lately the only thing noticed would be IE 9 stalling and having to refresh itself or simply closed. Your problem could also be update related. A fresh install from a download will bring you back to Square #1 however where prompts for IE updates will be seen for those already presently on.

I've looked and looked and cannot find a way to change default font and size in the mail app. Is there a way or registry hack or what???

A:Change default font size in Mail app

The default font size is Calibri 11. That cannot be changed.
The only change you can make is to manually change the font size on each email when you compose a message.
Sorry.

adding...................
In other more sophisticated email programs such as Windows Live Mail, you can set default font size as well as style.
