How do I change the desktop text, icons and bars back to 100% from 500% in Windows 8.1?


Hi Cindy

You have set a customer DPI scale for your display.

Right Click on desktop
Choose "Screen Resolution"
Click on link that says "Make Text and other items larger or smaller"
Click on link that says "Set custom text size (DPI)"
Adjust the scale back to 100%
Apply the changes and all should be well.

Regards
Andrew

  3. In the DPI Scaling dialog box, do one of the following:

    • To increase the size of text and other items on the screen, click Larger scale (120 DPI)-make text more readable, and then click OK.

    • To decrease the size of text and other items on the screen, click Default scale (96 DPI)-fit more information, and then click OK.

    To see the changes, close all of your programs, and then restart Windows.

How do I increase and set font size?


First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization.


In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI).


If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI).


In the Custom DPI Setting window you can select the desired percentage for the DPI increase. You have the following options: 100% for the normal size of 96 DPI, 125% for 120 DPI, 150% for 144 DPI and 200% for 192 DPI.


If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in Windows Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling. Just check the appropriate option and press on OK.


The change can be applied only after a system restart. Close all the running applications, save your open documents and then press on Restart Now. After a reboot, the font size will be changed.

Text size is too small on my toshiba laptop using windows vista home premium. Is there a good way to enlarge it?


If you are referring to desktop font size, right click on an empty portion of your desktop, pick personalize on the context menu, and on the left side of the window, you should see "Adjust Font Size (DPI)". You can change the font size to larger scale (120 DPI) which should make the text larger. For web browsers, most should have an option to change the text size in the menu, but these steps would be different for the various web browsers available.

I have a Dell inspiron 1011 netbook. The problem


Sounds like your screen resolution it way to low. Right click on an empty spot on the desktop and go to properties in the drop down menu. Then select the settings tab and raise your resolution to at least 800x600 32bit. 1024x768 32bit may be better. Good Luck

Change the DPI setting to Normal size (96 DPI). If you have the value set on anything else, text on the HUD-1 will look jumbled on the screen.
Click OK and your computer will ask you to reboot your computer. Click Yes.
