How to Change Font Size in Windows Vista


If you have trouble reading text on your Windows Vista computer, you may want to increase the font size. Windows Vista allows you to increase the size scale of text on the screen up to 200 percent of the default size. This doubles the font size on the screen, which should increase the readability of the text. Your new font sizes will be available after you restart your computer.

  • Right-click an empty area on your desktop, and click "Personalize." If you cannot see your Desktop, hold the Windows key and press "M" to minimize all windows.

  • Click "Adjust font size (DPI)" in the left pane of the Personalization window. If a confirmation window appears, click "Continue."

  • Click "Larger scale (120 DPI) - make text more readable" in the "DPI Scaling" window to increase the font size 25 percent.

  • Click "Custom DPI" at the bottom of "DPI Scaling," if you want to increase the font size more than the "Larger scale" allows.

  • Click the drop-down menu in the "Custom DPI Settings" window, and choose either "150%" or "200%."

  • Check "Use Windows XP style DPI scaling." This option may not be required, unless you are running Windows Aero. If you notice blurring in some programs, check this option.

  • Click "OK." Choose "Restart Now."
