Windows 7: Change computer text size from 100% to 125%

09 Apr 2014   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1


I have no idea what happened but somehow, someway, when I just rebooted my computer the 125% text size was still working after rebooting. So just to double check I restarted my computer three times and just for good measure shut it down three more times and then restarted. My 125% text size setting survived it all. I wish I could tell everyone the correct fix, but for the life of me, I don't know.

I appreciate all your suggestions.

Thanks and regards,
