How to Change Windows 8 Font Size?


Under normal circumstances, you might not want to change the default Windows 8 font size because the standard configuration that is applied on the operating system right out-of-the-box is pretty ideal for almost every normal computer user. However if anyone is physically challenged, especially anyone suffering from a weak eyesight, the default font size of all the labels of the icons, object names, etc. can be increased or decreased as desired.

The best part is that while changing the font size in Windows 8/Windows 8.1, the size of the icons/objects remains constant. This further means that no additional display area would be covered by the gigantic object icons.

In order to change the font size of the Windows 8/Windows 8.1 desktop icons, you must follow the steps given below:

    ■Log on to the Windows 8/Windows 8.1 computer with any user account.
    ■From the Start screen, click the Desktop tile.
    ■Once on the desktop window, right-click anywhere.
    ■From the displayed context menu, click Personalize.

    ■On the opened Personalization window, click Display from the navigation bar in the left pane.

    ■From the Display window, under the Change only the font size section, choose the Icons option from the object’ drop-down list.

    ■From the size drop-down list, choose the appropriate size for the icons of the operating system.

    ■Once this is done, click Apply to allow the changes to take effect.
    ■Optionally, you can also choose other objects such as title bars, message boxes, or tooltips from the objects’ drop-down list, and choose the appropriate font size for them from the size drop-down list as well.
