Windows 7: control panel-->sound dialogue box too small, can't view all content

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
control panel-->sound dialogue box too small, can't view all content

I tried to change the logon sound but noticed I can't access the bottom half of the dialogue box.

I tried to play around with font size but it's at 100% meaning it's the minimal size

Please help.

Hello hairgreen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you may have changed your default font from looking at your left screenshot above. If so, that may be why it's not fitting if you used a font that is larger than the default one. If it was changed then you might see if restoring the default font using step 3 in OPTION THREE in the tutorial below may sort this for you.

Fonts - Change

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink. I was looking through your beautiful picture gallery of tutorials and noticed an omission on this item. I am sure many users wish to keep their selected view. Your tip only allows the view for that session only, or at least on my computer. Fwiw, that "Other site" states that next time...
