The ability to change the size of your system fonts is a small feature, but it has some far-reaching implications.
For instance, as computer monitors grow, you get to view more things in that high-resolution screen estate. But it also can make everything look smaller and fonts on the screen slightly hard to read. Web browsers make it easier to change the font size.
Windows did too till the Creator’s Update removed the setting to change the system font size for the title bar, menus, palette title, message box, and tooltip. If you are struggling to read the fonts on your screen, this portable free app can help now.
System Font Changer for Windows 10
System Font Changer is a nice lightweight portable app from the trustworthy WinTools. It is supported on Windows 7 and 8 too, but you will need it more on Windows 10 to change the font size of title bar, palette title, menu, icon, tooltip, and message box.
When you run it for the first time, it will ask you to save your default settings. Click on Yes and save the registry file in a location of your choice. You can export the default settings from the main interface later too.
As you can see from the interface, the program is simple.
Select the item you want to tweak. For instance, click the bullet next to tooltip if you want to change the font size. Move the slider from the default to anywhere between 0 to 20. Click the Apply button. Log out and log in again to see the change.
You might need to tweak it a few times to get the optimum size. Export and keep the optimum settings in a separate registry file if you so wish.
