What is dpi


DPI is "Dots per Inch"
Setting the DPI size to a smaller number or percentage will decrease all items size on the display, while setting the DPI size to a larger number or percentage will increase all items size on the display.

Typically, the higher the dots per inch (DPI), the better the fonts will look. If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running a Windows Aero theme, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in this version of Windows. You can avoid this issue by using legacy DPI scaling (Windows XP style DPI scaling) for these programs.

Ledttering to small.dont know how to change to larger setting.


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)
I hope this has helped

My font size is too small


There are a few different ways you may be able to increase font size. One is, if you have a "zoom" button on your keyboard with + and -, you may be able to use this by itself or by pressing "Ctrl" simultainiously with it. Another way is if you have a tool icon, upper right of your screen, may look like a gear, click on that and see if you have a zoom option there. You can also adjust you DPI, by clicking "start", lower left of screen, then on "control panel". In your list(icon), find and right click on "personalization". At the upper left of screen you will see "adjust DPI..". Click on that and you will see "larger DPI" amd a custom DPI tab. You can click on the box for larger DPI or can custom adjust your size by clicking the tab. Pick the size you want and click on apply, then restart system. Using the zoom you can adjust up or down at will, changing the DPI will increase size but, the only way to adjust will be to coinside with the zoom or by physically going back to personalization and changing it.

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.
