How to change the font size of Windows 10
Windows 10 has several tools that allow you to change the font size in programs and the system. The main one, present in all versions of the OS, is scaling. But in some cases, simply changing the scaling of Windows 10 does not allow you to achieve the desired font size, you may also need to change the font sizes of the text of individual elements (window title, label captions, etc.).
This manual provides details on changing the font size of Windows 10 interface elements. Note that in earlier versions of the system there were separate settings for changing the font size (described at the end of the article), in Windows 10 1803 and 1703 there are none (but there are ways to change the font size using third-party software), and Windows 10 Update 1809 October 2018 introduced new tools to adjust text sizes. All methods for different versions will be described below. It can also come in handy: How to change the Windows 10 font (not only the size, but also select the font itself), How to change the size of Windows 10 icons and signatures, How to fix blurry Windows 10 fonts, Change the Windows 10 screen resolution.
Resize text without changing scaling in Windows 10
In the latest Windows 10 update (version 1809 October 2018 Update), it became possible to change the font size without changing the scale for all other system elements, which is more convenient, but does not allow changing the font for individual system elements (which can be done using third-party programs, about which further in the instructions).
Follow the steps below to change the text size in the new OS version
- Go to Start. Settings (or press the WinI keys) and open “Accessibility”.
- In the “Display” section, at the top, select the desired font size (set as a percentage of the current).
- Click “Apply” and wait for a while until the settings are applied.
As a result, the font size will be changed for almost all elements in system programs and most third-party programs, for example, from Microsoft Office (but not in all).
Changing the font for individual elements in the System Font Size Changer
- After starting the program, you will be prompted to save the current text size settings. Better to do this (They are saved as a reg file. If you need to return the original settings, just open this file and agree to make changes to the Windows registry).
- After that, in the program window, you can separately adjust the sizes of various text elements (below I will give a translation of each item). Marking “Bold” makes the font of the selected item bold.
- When finished, click the Apply button. You will be prompted to log out for the changes to take effect.
- After re-entering Windows 10, you will see the changed text size options for interface elements.
In the utility, you can change the font sizes of the following elements:
- Title Bar. Window titles.
- Menu. Menu (main menu of programs).
- Message Box. Message Boxes.
- Palette Title. Panel titles.
- Icon. Signatures under icons.
- Tooltip. Tips.
Another powerful utility that allows you not only to separately change the font sizes in Windows 10, but also to select the font itself and its color. Winaero Tweaker (font parameters are in the advanced design settings).
Changing the font size by changing the scale
Scaling changes not only fonts, but also the sizes of other elements of the system. You can adjust the scaling in Settings. System. Display. Scale and layout.
However, scaling is not always what you need. You can use third-party software to change and customize individual fonts in Windows 10. In particular, a simple free program System Font Size Changer can help with this.
Using options to resize Windows 10 text
Another method works only for Windows 10 versions before 1703 and allows you to change the font sizes of the same elements as in the previous case.
- Go to Options (WinI keys). System. Screen.
- At the bottom, click ” screen options”, and in the next window. ” changes to the size of text and other elements”.
- A control panel window will open, where in the “Change only text sections” section you can set parameters for window titles, menus, icon captions and other elements of Windows 10.
At the same time, unlike the previous method, you do not need to log out and log back in. the changes are applied immediately after clicking the “Apply” button.
That’s all. If you still have questions, and, possibly, additional ways to complete the task in question. leave them in the comments.

It’s strange. When I tested what I described above, my font also changed in the context menus.
All the rules, I was in a hurry, I just had the font manually changed according to the instructions of the admins on the forum, there was such a problem after the reboot, I re-launched the reg File. everything worked in full, thanks again
Dmitry, thanks, I tried this program, it’s also convenient. Although before that I worked with winaero tweaker. I wrote about this in another thread (Installing Windows 10 Creators Update), however, for some reason, the comment has not yet been published. that program, in my opinion, is easier than vinaero. Thanks again.
Vladimir, hello. About the comment: I do not just skip comments that are copied text from someone else’s site (and in your comment, this is exactly what it was).
Dmitry, good evening. Quite right, it was from the windowstips site, I had to immediately link to it, my jamb, I apologize. But back to the programs, I worked again with both, on two laptops, System Font Size Changer. it’s still easier, so I decided to stay on it. Maybe Microsoft will return the previous font settings. Thanks again.
Strange in my version 1703, in the parameters, there is a text size setting.
It is about changing individual elements (window title, for example, etc.). It was in 1607, but in 1703 it is already absent.
Or, of course, it can be returned in some minor update (I can’t look right now)
we are just talking about different things. Alexey meant that in the parameters there was still an opportunity to do “Change the size of text, attachments and other elements” by selecting Scaling 100% 125% 150%, etc.
And here we are discussing changing the font size of individual elements of the Windows interface, regardless of the multiplication factor, increasing the entire interface
Hello! It was hoped that with the release of this update, bugs with some programs for laptops with a screen resolution of 3840×2160 would disappear. Alas, this did not happen. For example, in Photoshop the font, the icons are literally ant-like. Increasing the font in the program itself does nothing. The only thing that I found on the internet is a script offered by craftsmen and intervention in the registry. It really helped for photoshop. But there are other programs in which the problems with the font in computers with this screen resolution have not been resolved. I have an antivirus program Avira. Works great. But if you need to read something, you need to turn on the magnifier. This is completely inconvenient. Maybe (I have a secret hope can you help me here? Maybe somewhere, you heard something about solving such problems?
Windows Photo Viewer Print Page Borderless
As for Photoshop, if you have the original CC, then they write on the official Adobe website that there is a scaling of 200% for the interface in the edit. preferences in Experimental Features. (though I didn’t find something in CC 2017, maybe because I have a normal Full HD screen, this thing is not displayed).
And Avira is not affected by the scaling of Windows itself?
“The parameters (edit. preferences) in Experimental Features have a scaling of 200% for the interface.”
– in the CC2014 version I have been using this function for a long time on Full HD 27. I did not install new ones, maybe they were removed already, given the degradation in everything new.
You may be right. I have Photoshop CC 2015, most likely, for this reason, and this function is not. And you don’t because of the screen. Maybe you are right. I will try to search, since you gave me a direction.
About Avira. In Windows itself, I have 250% scaling (recommended). I tried to change it to 100%. it turns out to be a complete disgrace, in general, you can’t even see the icons, dots instead. A larger percentage. not everything fits on the screen. There is no such problem with Komodo, everything is fine. And with all other programs, too, everything is in order, except for Adobe (this is Photoshop, and illustrator, and lightroom) and Avira. These are the ones I encountered. That’s it…
In all of your listed adobvo programs, in CC2014 the font is excellent at 200% and I have Full HD 27.
Again about computers with high screen resolution. Maybe someone will come in handy With Avira it turned out, now all the fonts are visible and do not merge into one line. To do this, open the application properties (in this case, I tried it on Avira), in the Compatibility section, a function appeared:. Redefine the high-resolution scaling mode. Scaling is performed:
You need to check the box and enable the system (advanced)
And everything fell into place.
But with Photoshop there was a reverse reaction, but I believe that this is due to the fact that I made corrections to the registry and used a script. I believe that removing all this will work with Photoshop.
On other programs, I have not tried my hands yet 🙂
everything was broken with their updates! my eyesight is useless. now I can’t add a font! this Bill Gay only thinks of himself! evil is not enough ((
I’ll go try third-party programs! thanks for the site! very useful! I come here often
Yes, Microsoft really fucked up, these Windows are going to hell!
Thanks for the help, I debugged the fonts as it should, in the previous version everything was easier. updated without demand. a mess of course!
Thank you so much! They helped a lot. May God give you health!
Thanks for the advice! also suffered for a long time because of the font thickness! reviewed so many forums! and everywhere they advise. PKM. Screen, etc and Nobody wrote that there is no “Screen” in the new Windows, there is “Display” and there is another menu. Prog solved the problem in part
Yes, in the menu, in the PC itself, all the rules. Now everything can be seen comfortably. But in the browser everything remained the same (I use Yandex browser. And the same VK page is very poorly visible. Thin menu letters on the left, and in general all news records and so on Is there any solution with this? Thanks for the advice
Only scaling in the browser itself (Ctrl and plus, Ctrl and minus keys). Well, or complex ways in the spirit of replacing the CSS stylesheet for your site (I will not put this in a comment).
A friend’s vision is not very good and therefore the font is enlarged in Windows. And everything is fine, except for one program, which is displayed incorrectly in one place.
Is it possible to set the font not to grow for one specific program? Please tell me if there is a way?
Yes, there is such a way. Open the properties of the program shortcut (right click. properties), there. the tab “compatibility”.
That’s just in the latest version of Windows 10, I see the item responsible for this has changed (previously you could just turn off scaling), now I see the item. “Override the scaling mode” and there are three values. One of them should clearly be responsible for the lack of scaling, which one. I cannot check now, but I think it will not be difficult to find out.
In some programs and sites there is a selection of text in a different color and it is practically invisible. Is it possible to increase its contrast?
If non-system selection parameters are specified in programs, then no, it will not work.
On websites, in principle, you can, but for this you need to be familiar with CSS. The general essence (I give a very simple option, for Google Chrome, but for others it is similar) for sites will be as follows:
1. Right click on the text. “view the code”.
2. The development panel will open, there on the right side there will be a thing with three tabs, the first, open by default. Styles, which is what you need.
3. In the styles list, find :: selection and click on the background color, set your own.
4. If there is also a font color in the selection (color), then you can set your color here too.
This is how it happens to customize the system for yourself with the help of your advice, and then some big update comes and all this beauty disappears.
Does anyone know how to change the font on Windows 10 and exactly change the font itself (Calibri, times new roman), and not the font size? And this is generally possible without downloading various programs.?
Here about it: https://remontka.pro/change-font-Windows-10/ (the last way is just without programs)
And in Windows 10 I don’t have such an option “All Control Panel Items \ Display”
These parameters have disappeared in the latest version.
The article contains a complete cabbage from what is and what is NOT ALREADY! See Use options to resize Windows 10 text, or remove or rewrite. Such junk, misleading and waste of time, unworthy of a serious site.
So in that section, after all, it is indicated at the beginning that it is suitable only for versions up to 1703 (and some of them still have such versions installed).
How to fix blurry fonts in programs
Not all Windows programs support the correct zooming and, as a result, in some applications you may see blurry fonts, while in the rest of the system such problems are not observed.
In this case, you can fix the problem as follows:
- Right-click on the shortcut or executable file of the program and select “Properties”.
- On the Compatibility tab, check Disable High Resolution Image Scaling and apply the settings. On newer versions of Windows 10, click Change High DPI Settings, then check Override Scaling Mode and select Application.
The next time the program is launched, the problem with blurry fonts should not appear (however, they may appear small on high-resolution screens).
How to fix blurry fonts in Windows 10
This instruction details what to do if you see blurry fonts in Windows 10 or individual programs and applications, which can happen both after changing the scaling in the display settings or without these actions.
First of all, we will talk about ways to fix the problem related to changing the screen resolution, which are obvious to most users, but may not be taken into account by novice users, and then. other ways to fix blurry text in Windows 10.
Note: if the fonts have become blurry after a recent change in the scaling settings (125%, 150%) in the display settings (item “Changing the size of text, applications, and other elements”), try to start by simply restarting your computer (even if you have done so more than once it was turned off and on, since turning off in 10 is not the same as rebooting).
Eliminate blurry text when scaling
If the problem with blurry fonts occurred after resizing elements in “Right click on desktop”. “Display settings”. “Resize text, applications and other elements” to 125% or more, and restarting the computer or laptop did not fix the problem, try next option.
- Press WinR keys and enter dpiscaling (or go to control panel. screen).
- Click on “Set custom zoom level”.
- Make sure it is set to 100%. If not, change to 100, apply, and restart your computer.
- Right Click on Desktop. Display Options.
- Return the scaling to 100%.
- Go to Control Panel. Display, click “Set custom zoom level”, and set the required scaling Windows 10.
After applying the settings, you will be asked to log out, and after logging in, you should see the changed sizes of fonts and elements, but without blurring (when using this option, a different scaling is applied than in the Windows 10 display settings).
In some cases (for example, due to incorrect operation of video card drivers), the problem with blurry text can be caused by incorrect operation of the ClearType font smoothing function, which is enabled by default in Windows 10 for LCD screens.
Try disabling or adjusting this feature and check if the problem is resolved. To do this, search for ClearType in the taskbar and run “Customize ClearType Text”.
After that, try both the option with setting the function to work, and the option with disabling it. Read more: Configuring ClearType on Windows 10.
Automatically fix blurred fonts in Windows 10 1803
The Windows 10 1803 April Update introduced an additional option to fix blurry fonts for apps that don’t support scaling (or don’t do it correctly). You can find the parameter by going to Settings. System. Display. Advanced scaling options, the item “Allow Windows to fix blur in applications”.
If it turns out that the setting is turned on, but the problem persists, try turning it off instead.
Screen resolution check
This item is for those of users who do not fully understand what the physical resolution of the monitor screen is and why the resolution set in the system should correspond to the physical.
So, modern monitors have such a parameter as physical resolution, which is the number of horizontal and vertical dots on the screen matrix, for example, 1920 × 1080. over, if your system has any resolution that is not multiples of the physical resolution, you will see distortion and blurry fonts.
Therefore: if you are not sure, make sure that the screen resolution set in Windows 10 corresponds to the actual screen resolution (in some cases, this may lead to the fact that the font seems too small to you, but this can be corrected with the scaling parameters).
- To find out the physical screen resolution. you can simply search the technical specifications on the Internet by entering the make and model of your monitor.
- To set the screen resolution in Windows 10, right-click anywhere on the desktop and select “Display Settings”, then click on the “Advanced Display Settings” item (bottom right) and set the desired resolution. If the required resolution is not in the list, then you probably need to install the official drivers for your video card, for an example, see Installing NVIDIA drivers in Windows 10 (for AMD and Intel it will be the same).
Note: if you use multiple monitors (or TV monitor) and the image is duplicated on them, then Windows when duplicating uses the same resolution on both screens, while for some of them it may not be native. There is only one solution here. change the mode of operation of two monitors to “Expand screens” (by pressing the WinP keys) and set the correct resolution for each of the monitors.
There is also a Windows 10 DPI Blurry Fix program available on the Internet to fix blurry fonts. The program, as I understand it, uses the second method from this article, when instead of scaling Windows 10, the “old” scaling is used.
To use it, it is enough to install in the program “Use Windows 8.1 DPI scaling” and adjust the desired scaling level.
And finally, if all else fails, double-check if you have the original latest drivers for your graphics card installed, not by clicking “update” in Device Manager, but by manually downloading from the appropriate official sites (or using NVIDIA and AMD utilities).

Dmitry thank you for the recommended lessons, especially for me as a novice user, because I am still weak in computer literacy, thanks again.
The interesting thing is that Microsoft is aware of this problem and does nothing. In Win 7-8.1, this problem was solved by switching one button, which was removed for some reason at 10.
Hello Dmitry. And I got the following problem: the font became indistinct, i.e. not blurry, but thinner the very writing of letters, and some sticks of letters remained bold. In general, the text is poorly readable. Pictures and photos are viewed in the same quality.
Hello. If the resolution is set exactly to the original, then the matter is probably in the Windows ClearType settings, about this here. https://remontka.pro/setup-cleartype-Windows/
Yes, thank you, Dmitry. I found and read your article on the same day and it helped. Thanks for your work and quick replies.
I adjusted the font sizes to a colleague after installing 10 (Samsung 1280×1024). Blur at 125% scaling was defeated by the scaling setting of 115%. fonts got larger than at 100%, but there is no blur.
Thank you very much!) As always saved me)
In my case, it helped. All Control Panel Items. NVIDIA Control Panel. Change Resolution. Settings.Create Custom Resolution. And where hertz instead of 60 put 61. Everything became ok!
By the way, that’s right! Also at one time, after installing win 10, I ran into the problem that when I expose 125% display, the font is blurry. I shoveled the entire Internet before quite by accident in the settings of my monitor I discovered that the refresh rate for some reason was “59” hertz, instead of the “60”. After correcting for the desired, the font display became normal!
Only now in the “Compatibility” tab there is no item “Disable image scaling at high screen resolution”, now there is an item “Change high DPI settings” in the window of which there are two items:
1. Program resolution
2. Override high resolution scaling
They have a bunch of descriptions, but the second point helped me.
Win10 version: 1803
Thank. “Windows 10 DPI Blurry Fix”. helped.
I think that one should also not forget about the automatic monitor setup, which is called from the monitor menu (applies to desktops). Sometimes pressing this button will improve the image after the monitor has automatically calibrated.
Hello! I have such a problem.
After updating the video card drivers, the software fonts became unreadable (win10 shell fonts),
all others are read normally. What to do.
This is the first time I’ve met such a display. Visually, it looks as if the video card drivers were not installed at all (they are used by default like “base video adapter”), but maybe just faulty drivers. You can first try to roll back the driver through the device manager.
None of the methods helped. I have already tried everything. And I put this program. Everything is empty. In applications such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop CC, DxO OpticsPro 10 and here and there on the screen (weather widget), fonts are completely impossible to read. After several hours of photo manipulation, my eyes ache purely because of these blurry fonts.
I am already seriously considering returning to Windows 7
And what about the blurry font in the interface of these programs or in the processed documents? If the latter, then (for example, in relation to Photoshop), the case may be:
1. Raster text.
2. The software did not make friends with the video card drivers (they are used to smooth text layers in Photoshop and, I think, in many other graphics software).
3. Something is wrong in the performance parameters (Edit. Preferences. Performance. Use Graphics Processor. Advanced Settings.
4. Font parameters. For example, small fonts “Smooth” can cause this effect.
in the interface of the programs themselves. I didn’t understand what you mean about the second option. The desktop itself, after all, there are images, everything is fine there.
Context menus. too.
And everything else. all the names of buttons, menus, etc a complete mess.
Edit. Preferences. Performance. Use Graphics Processor. Advanced Settings there it was worth using. Removed, nothing has changed.
When I put 10 problems and questions, a lot arose. Almost all these questions were answered precisely at Remontka. Thank you for that. But all the way I was tormented with the fonts of these applications and then I wondered, “why is this?” For Google, and again Repair, well, I think, but I was toiled, now we will fix everything, this is Repair. But something didn’t work out. Sorry.
Also, for example, some widgets turn into mush. Here is an example of a widget from AIDA64. The seven was crisp and clear. Here, on the 10-ke, there is nothing to make out in it.
only on other display devices you are unlikely to see anything.
It was also when Chrome removed directwrite from the flags, all the fonts became cloudy, and I, indignantly, laid out screenshots on professional sites, where other users said that everything was fine. And on my tablet, such screenshots also look like wow.
In general, Windows 10 pro workstation 1803 and in it, as in the seven, segoe ui are removed, or rather replaced through the registry. Corresponding fonts in the system itself are sharp and readable, as it was on XP.
I need it so that I can read the text, otherwise I can’t see anything with CLEARTYPE tech. As measured by this monitor. Thought it might have something to do with this? But at the seven, after all, everything was fine. Replaced there if memory does not change 4 fonts Segoe ui to Tahoma in the registry branch. And that’s it
I said goodbye to Chrome. Now on Cent, it controls directwrite and I can read any text. Plus the StyleBot extension that can replace fonts. In a word, I got used to it))) everything is clear and sharp, no cleartype!
According to the screenshots: on LR it is even more or less, there is the left side, on top is porridge.
It blurs very much in DxO. also the left side, the entire text of the folder hierarchy, plus the “file / edit” menu, etc a terrible mess.
Well, the widget is also porridge.
Do you really have a screen resolution of 1680×1050? Those. is it the physical resolution of the monitor? Or is the monitor resolution different, but you set the resolution to 1680 × 1050? If you put it up, then in all likelihood, this is the point.
Native, of course. Monitor Samsung 2032BW
Installing build 1909 solved the font issue.
I bought myself a Samsung LC24RG50 monitor, 23.5 1920 1080 resolution. Before that there was Acer, of the same resolution, also 144Hz, only 23.6. Everything was fine on Acer, an awesome picture, and there were no questions, but as for the Samsung, when I first launched it, I saw some weirdness with the fonts, they look different, they seem to be drawn in pixels, not bold, that is, they look something like this (screen)
Is it possible to fix it somehow or do something? In games, too, are they crooked, and in chrome, mb with vidyakha something? What’s with Samsung monitors? MB is a marriage?
Such a matrix technology, not a marriage. Here you can see tftcentral.co.uk/articles/panel_technologies.htm
Can I fix it somehow?
And do all Samsungs have such game? Or with VA matrix only?
I personally did not work closely with VA matrices. so, I looked from afar. But in general, many people write about the subjective problems of perceiving textual content on MVA (regardless of the manufacturer) with a relatively low resolution. And they give about the same as you do as an example: farm4.static.flickr.com/3017/2672173433_071641aa3f_o.jpg
Thanks for the article, helped me in my new job. The eyes were so irritated
Nothing helped, there is a large monitor and the text has a kind of areola a couple of pixels thick on each letter of white followed by a couple of dark pixels, shadows are disabled. I do not know what to do. monitor is TV 1080p
If TV, then the reason for this is almost always the function of improving clarity on TV, as well as all sorts of options for selecting a mode on it (such as “cinema”, “photo”, etc.). Those. the task is to find similar settings in the TV itself and disable any improvements.
In Windows 7, there was a magic checkbox called “Use Windows XP Style Scales”. There is no such setting in Windows 10. Is it possible to enable this option in the registry or somehow?
In the registry in 7, with the marked “scale in the style of XP”, the following happened:
under HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop \
A DWORD32 parameter named LogPixels was created with a value equal to DPI (dots per inch). Standard (for most monitors) was 100% = 72, double. 144, etc.
How it will work (and whether it will work) on a 10-ke. I don’t know.
I can offer this partial solution.
Option number 1.
Universal option for 125% scale in Windows 10 1909:
RMB on the desktop. Screen options. Scale and markup. Additional scaling options. enter 125. Apply.
Sign out and sign in again.
Result: the device manager and all other system programs and regular programs look crisp. (You do not need to disable scaling in the properties of each program).
The disadvantage is that it only works for 125%. At 150%, 175% (and above) there will be blur.
Option number 2.
The blurring of fonts at large scale (150%, 175%, 200%) in Windows 10 is eliminated in the same way as in Windows 8.1.
For Windows 10 1909 (will probably work in previous versions as well):
We set the scale we need, for example, 175%.
RMB on the desktop. Screen options. Scale and markup. We choose 175%.
Please note that we set the scale to 175% in the “Scale and Layout” section, and not in the additional scaling parameters.
You don’t need to go into additional scaling options
(and you don’t need to enter the scale there either).
To eliminate blur in Device Manager and other system programs, create a registry file:
and save the file with the.reg extension (file name. any).
b) Run the created file, answer “yes” to the request that appears.
To remove blur in other programs:
find the exe file of the program. right-click. Properties. Compatibility. Change high DPI settings. put the checkbox “Redefine high resolution scaling mode”. The scaling is in progress. Application. OK. OK.
Note: Unfortunately, this does not work for dllhost.exe on Windows 10. For example, if you go to the Network Control Center. Change adapter settings. Properties [adapter] then will be blurry. Although everything is clear in Windows 8.1.
Another example of fuzziness: properties of disk C. Access. Advanced setup is vague again. (And in Windows 8.1 clearly).
P.S. No crutches like “Windows10_DPI_FIX” (here are batch shirts for autoloading) do not eliminate blur at a scale of more than 125%.
There is such a moment: that not everyone has blur at a large scale. I work at 200% (4k monitor), everything is fine, and everywhere, at 150 it was like that too. Although I suspect that you can find software that will start washing and there is equipment where it is not like mine, I just mean that the statement “Disadvantage. it only works for 125%. At 150%, 175% (and above) there will be blurring ”is not always true.
In general, it is very surprising that you do not lather at 150 and 200%. It lathers everywhere: in a Lenovo laptop (17.3 ″, IPS, FullHD, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U, AMD Radeon Vega 8, Windows 10 Enterprise 1909), in an Asus laptop (15.6 ″, PLS, FullHD, i5-4200H, Intel HD 4600. Windows 8.1), even on an old system unit (monitor 24 ″ PLS 1920 × 1200, Core 2 Duo E8200, GeForce 9600GT), if you install Windows 8 on it (in Windows 7 everything is absolutely clear thanks to the “Windows XP-style scales” checkbox).
Maybe you have some special software. “homemade” or with raster resources (or special versions of the software of those years when they did not care about scaling yet)?
I can’t prove it: you still can’t see this on the screenshot, but I don’t see soap anywhere. I use scaling all the time on the current monitor (200% 10 Pro 1909, 27 inches 4k IPS, GTX770, integrated graphics disabled), and sometimes on a laptop (150% 15 inches 1920 × 1080 10 Pro 1909 TN, Intel). And if something starts to wash and starts, so only raster images on sites.
No, no, I don’t use any special software. Please check if there is any blur (at least slight) on a 15 ″ laptop at 150%:
1.in the device manager;
2. properties of disk C. Access. Advanced setup (the “Advanced setup” window is vague on my 10-ke).
And yes, did you add the keys to the registry “
HIGHDPIAWARE “as in my comment above (or something similar)?
I apologize for not answering the comment for a long time, I still can’t get to the laptop, how I get it. I’ll update this one. I did not add keys, here I can immediately answer.
Update: looked. And really soap icons in the device manager. Those. he continues to take them to their original size and scale, and does not take icons of a larger resolution. And if by 200% this is not so noticeable, then with fractional values already yes.
Found an interesting program, DpiAwarenessEnabler 1.0.3.
It does the same thing as the registry file above: adds the values ”
HIGHDPIAWARE “. You can manually select programs that require HIGHDPIAWARE, or you can enable automatic mode: the utility will automatically activate HIGHDPIAWARE for those programs that need it. True, an application in which the blurriness will have to be launched 2 times: the first time it will be fuzzy, and the second time everything will be as it should.
But DpiAwarenessEnabler cannot make windows related to dllhost.exe look clear in 10 (just like the registry file does not help).
Ultimately, one question remains open: how to remove the blurring of dllhost.exe in Windows 10. As I understand it, Microsoft has changed something in Windows 10 compared to Windows 8.1, as a result of which the HIGHDPIAWARE parameter ceased to work on dllhost.exe.
Thank you so much for the article!) She helped a lot and added not only clarity to the font, but also joy in my life)
Oh, savior! While I was cleaning my bucket, I was setting up something, I broke fonts, I didn’t know about cleartype, it helped
To display old applications (32 bit) correctly on Windows 10:
1) let’s allow the use of manifests for different applications in the Windows registry (Win R. Regedit):
in the branch: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrenTVersion \ SideBySide
create a section DWORD (32bit): “PreferExternalManifest” with the value “1” (without quotes of course)
2) create a text file with the following m:
3) rename the text file for your application to “ApplicationName.exe.manifest” (ie copy the name of the application with its extension and add the word manifest after the dot).
4) copy this text file to the folder with the main application (i.e. the application file and the manifest file must be in the same place)
We launch the application and enjoy the normal display on new monitors (at least I managed to achieve the desired display)
Thank you very much! Everything worked out! Troubleshooting is described in an accessible, simple and understandable way! Thanks again!
You can try to decrease the size of the letters using the built-in standard tools of the Windows operating system. This method is also effective, and to use it you only need a computer running in operating mode:

Despite the age of advanced technology, many people are still just getting started with computers. And it is not at all easy for them, because the capabilities of modern PCs are much wider than the first models. Novice PC users always have a lot of questions during their work. How to remove large letters on the keyboard is one of the most common, to which you will see the answer today.
For what reasons should you change the font?
Many people have a great need to reduce the font on the screen while working with a stationary personal computer. This problem can be caused by a system failure of the device, when all the shortcuts have increased dramatically in size, or you just need to make the font smaller so that more information can fit on the computer screen.
Yes, it is not particularly important, since the methods for solving the problem will be the same for all cases. This material should help a novice user to cope with the task, and he only needs a keyboard and a computer mouse.
If you are puzzled by the question of how to remove large print on the keyboard, then this means that the visualization of symbols on the workspace of your device has ceased to satisfy your vision. This feature becomes boring very quickly when working in a browser or in any of the utilities, for example: Microsoft Word, Excel and others. It also happens that actions need to be taken, since some label signatures are not displayed as expected, which means that it is necessary to reduce the size of the system output of the characters of the Windows operating system.
The main methods for solving the problem
Among the countless ways to remove large letters on a computer, there are the most popular and simple solutions.
Just use the Control (Ctrl) and Minus (-) keys. This method is universal for most Windows computer programs, and for third-party software too. Just press Ctrl and hold it, and then press the minus. you will immediately see how everything decreases.
Important! If you suddenly want to increase something, then replace the minus with a plus. and everything will return to its place.
You can also try controlling the resolution of your monitor. Resolution is the number of dots that are simultaneously displayed on the screen. If you change the values of this parameter, then both icons and fonts will change their size, will look clearer, and the use of a personal computer will become more comfortable.
Important! Do you want to change the already annoying screen design, but have no idea how to implement it? Read the detailed instructions:
In order to crank all these actions, right-click (right-click) on an empty area on the desktop space and select the section called “Screen Resolution”, in which you need to switch to higher screen resolutions.
Important! Do not forget to take into account the capabilities of your display device and do not set those values that exceed its technical parameters.
And finally, you can use the screen setting:
- Go to Control Panel from the Start Menu and open Manage and Personalization.
- Now we are looking for the item “Screen”, go into it and adjust the size to a smaller side, if possible.
Important! You can also use another option called “Different font size”. you can find this option in the same menu on the left.

This method examines changing the font on a laptop in Windows. In this case, first of all, you should open the “start”, then open the “control panel”. All operations with the operating system are carried out through this control panel. You can also use the device search. It is necessary to enter the function you are interested in in a special search field, and the computer will open this function. It will even come out much easier.

This article describes how to enlarge the font on a laptop using the example of the Windows operating system, any browser and office suite. As can be seen from everything previously stated, there is nothing difficult about this, and everyone can cope with such a task, regardless of their level of training.
The second method changes the font in the browser. In this case, scaling is carried out. You can do it both with the keyboard and together with the mouse. They can be combined. The combination method will come out much easier than separately.
You need to press the “CTRL” key on the keyboard and then twist the scrolling on the mouse. You can twist it in both directions. In one direction it will decrease the scale, in the other, on the contrary, it will increase. But you can also do this purely with the keyboard, without the help of the mouse. The “CTRL” key is also pressed, and with it the plus key, if you need to increase the scale, with the minus sign, if you need to zoom out.
First, let’s figure out how to increase the font on a laptop in the operating system itself. To do this, you need to go to “Start”, then we need “Control Panel”. The easiest way to find the section of interest to us is using the squeak field, which is usually located in the upper right corner. We type in it “Change colors” and press “Enter”. In the list that opens, select the item that begins with the entered words. This will open a window with font settings in the operating system. Then you can configure all this at your discretion. For example, you need to change the title. We click on it with the right mouse button. In this case, the type of font used and its size will appear at the bottom of the window. Open the first of them and select the desired type of text design in the drop-down list. In the second, we enter its size. After that, click on the “Apply” button for the changes to take effect. Close the window with “Ok”. Likewise, you can change the options for menus, messages, or text. To do this, it is enough to right-click the manipulator on the element of interest instead of the window title. Otherwise, the order is the same.
This method is the simplest. Changing the font in the “office” system on a laptop will take no more than 20 seconds.
You need to select the text, then at the top of the screen (on the left) open the “main” tab, and then the “font” tab and set the font size of interest there.
How to enlarge the font on a laptop in various applications?
The question “how to enlarge the font on a laptop” arises quite often among novice users. There is no definite answer to it. It all depends on the application you are working in. One way can be used in the operating system itself. The browser uses a completely different combination. But for an office suite, you need to use the third method.
