Preferred Solution: Desktop-Restore font size

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Desktop-Restore font size

Right Click on Desktop/ Properties/ Click the settings tab and move the screen resolution slider to a smaller setting.

That should restore your desktop size to a readable setting!

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.

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help with this problem. A short history:

In July I acquired the TDSS trojan from some site link. I removed it using MBAM, Windows Malicious Software Removal and Zonealarm Extreme Security.

My system is now clean as far as I know.

I then enabled automatic updates from Microsoft and downloaded and installed everything including SP3.

Thereafter when I start up Windows, my icon fonts look fine - default setting for Windows Standard, but the task bar fonts are sometimes too large. When this happens, if I then click on a programme icon those fonts also grow very large - to probably 14 points, then the rest of the desktop, menus, titles, etc. all follow suit.

If I restart Windows this problem usually goes away until the next or second-next time that I start up - ocassionally, like today, it doesn't.

I have followed advice to change font settings and sizes, even the font type, then after restarting have reset to the default and everything is OK for a few starts, then the problem recurs.

I've searched the web for advice but can't find any relevant to my search terms, other than strong advice to remove SP3, which I did, then installed all the security updates - except a few which will not install (inf files missing).

I had other reasons to uninstall SP3, relating to monitor colour not being reliable and associated problems.

I have no real desire to reinstall everything as that is a real pain and would appreciate any advice if available.

hi

i has just recently downloaded a game that required fullscreen. After i deleted the game, all my desktop settings were messed up. First, i couldnt see my start bar. Now I can after restarting, but the text size of everything was larger than usual. Even when you would open a window, the area where the close, minimize and maximize buttons (that bar) had large text. I went to my properties and changed my desktop theme. Now everything is extremely small. The area that says "file , edit, etc." is extremely small, however the interent font size is alright. Could anyone suggest any ideas on how to fix this problem?

thanks!

I have connected my laptop to a 40" LCD TV using HDMI cable and everything works fine. Since the desktop icons/fonts on the TV shows default (small) size from the laptop, in order for me to see it from the distance I have to change the desktop icons/fonts to a larger size.

Here is my question; Is there a way to set up a different desktop icon/fonts size to match the TV and the laptop? (perhaps different profile settings???) Meaning, when I disconnect the HDMI cable from the TV, I want the size of the icons/fonts go back to default/small size icons and vice versa .

Hope this question makes sense.

I can't think of anything that exist within windows. It wasn't necessarily designed to be used on 40" LCD from 10' away in the way you are using it. That's why Windows Media Center's fonts are so much bigger.

Per this Topic here on 7F: dual monitor text is different sizes between screens you're out of luck.

Good day.

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

Hi Muneeb and welcome to TSF !

You could give system restore a try : start => all programs => accessories => system tools => system restore. Select a date in bold prior to when the problem began. You won't lose any personal data but you may need to reinstall any program or update you've installed since then.

Else the system file checker can restore your system fonts. You'll need an XP install CD with service pack 2 (XP Home SP2 or XP Pro SP2 depending on the version you have installed). If your current CD hasn't got service pack 2 then you need to create a slipstreamed CD with SP2. Use one of these guides and report once you have an XP SP2 install CD :

Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

What size screen did you upgrade to, the bigger screen can make thing look different. Also, what resolution are you running at?

This below was gleaned from the Outlook Express Help files.

To change the font, style, and size of text

You can change the way the text looks for all your messages or you can make changes to selected text within a message.

To change the text style for all messages

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Compose tab, click Font Settings.
To format text within individual messages

Select the text you want to format.
(To change the font for an entire message, on the Edit menu, click Select All.)

When you use HTML formatting and the recipient's e-mail or news program does not read HTML, the message appears as plain text with an HTML file attached. The recipient can view the attached file by opening it in any Web browser.

I have AOL 9.0 and Windows XP on an HP PC. I can send E-Mails and they print out as I specified (Arial 12pt.). However, when I receive E-Mails from anyone, the type face is HUGE, and takes three times the space to print out. I called AOL Tech Support (India, naturally), and got a lot of useless advice, including reinstallation. Please show me how to configure so I can receive and send in the same font size (medium).

Thanks a million.

How can i increase the text size of my PC for web pages?

There are certain sites I have visited where the text is near impossible to read because it is so small.

Is there anything I can do to change this?

A:Font Size......

You don't tell us what operating system you are using.
But, if it is XP, hold down the "Ctrl" key and rotate the wheel
on your mouse to increase/decrease print size.

Does anyone know how to reduce the font/tab size on the left frame IE6 window?

I can change the font size at the right frame window, but not the left.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
 

A:Size of Font on IE6

Are you talking about Windows Explorer, and not Internet Explorer? With I/E, there is no left/right side. If you want to change the font size, hold down the Control key while scrolling with the mouse wheel.

Hi guys,

I know this is a naggy and boring question but it's annoying me! I just changed my email program from Outlook Express 6 to Microsoft Outlook (cos i need the calendar) and i always have the IE font size on 'smaller' but somehow whenever i open Outlook before IE, it changes the font size to 'medium' and its too DAMN big!! I didn't have this problem with Outlook Express before, but it's just me being finnicky, isn't it? Spose I should just go back to Express..

Also, it's probably my ISP connection, but it's crap at connecting to hotmail. I can get my ISP email easy, but Outlook does not like connecting to hotmail I ALWAYS get timeout errors.

Can you help?

Cheers,
Dan.

I changed it back to large, logged off and on again and the icons are now larger but the text is still small. Help.
