Windows 7: Size other than 100, 125 and 150

Size other than 100, 125 and 150

Hello:

In Control Panel Display, you can set size to 100, 125 and 150 %. Now, 115 % would probably be optimal for me. Is there any way to set the size to intermediate values?

Regards,

Hans L

Hello Hans,

Yes, you can use step 6 in the tutorial below to click on the Set custom text size (DPI) link on the left and drag the scale until you get 115% to do so.

Hope this helps,

DMHolt57 and Brink, as a Swedish expression goes: "The first things that go blind are the eyes" :-)

Thank you very much!

Now, would you happen to have any idea why my Personalization settings (Window Color and transparency) are "unsaved" every time I change the size?

Regards,

You're most welcome Hans.

Not sure on that issue, but you should create a new thread on it to see what everyone may be able to do to help with it.

Had a feeling you would mention a new thread ;-) You are right, of course.
