Windows 7: Windows Font size for Tab Control /button caption or form too Small

Windows Font size for Tab Control /button caption or form too Small

I have no idea how it happened but the font type and size of all the captions of controls like tab, button, form text etc had changes and has gone too small.

My window color and appereance is all set to size 9 Segoe UI.

The Setting seems to have affected some windows and seems to not affect others.

For Example in the windows below, the first one is completely affected and you can see the state of the font there.

in the second one there is no affect of the setting whatsoever.

in the third, notice the TAB caption, and it is my Window Color and Appreance window and you can notice the font is set to default Segoe UI for all here.

Requesting assistance to solve the issue

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Run Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will check for any corrupt system files and try to repair them if possible.

I noticed your font size Segoe UI is only 9. Just make it a bigger number like maybe 16.

You might also want to check to verify that your display resolution is the correct / optimim for the monitor. some monitors will display an image that is WAY to big for the monitor when the monitor driver is not installed correctly.

Remember if it is a 4:3 monitor the biggest your going to have for a resolution is something like 1600 x 1200, if it is a 16:10 (or 16:9 lets not split hairs about this one) the largest you will find is something like 1920 x 1080.

If your monitor is displaying the wrong resolution you might see something like 2084 x 1660. or some other random resolution.

Welcome to Seven Forums 666anime. It's always a good idea to start a new thread with your problem. Do you have a system restore point from before this occurred? This can often be the easiest way to fix such a problem.

System Restore

Yes, I tried System restore and sfc/scannow
Both of those didn't work.

And I also found a fix for this issue. It was as simple as download the default fonts and re-install them. That fixed the issue. I have no idea how the fonts got corrupted in the first place. But I'm happy it worked.

For anyone who might need the default fonts, this is the link
Default Font Folder - Where can I download it?

And also, Thank you 'A Guy' for your help... *no I didn't forget that*
