Windows 7: Control Panel Pop Out Menu Font Size

10 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 (Home Premium) x64

There is a "set custom size" option on the left hand side of the page where you can set it to any magnification that you wish, such as 110%, etc...

I knew how to blow up the pop out menu doing it this way but, was hoping there was another option, as this affects all fonts on your computer.

Thank you very much for all the time you have spent on this, NoN.

I have set the custom size to 115% and it looks a little better now. I have had to decrease my font size in some individual programs that I use but, it wasn't that much of a hassle.

Bug in themes

Hi everyone, I don't know if it's the case but there is a bug in the windows 7 themes.
If you change screen size to medium (125%) and then you go back to small, some menu fonts are too small to read (context menu fonts, chrome tabs..).
To resolve this just switch to one of the defaults windows 7 themes and change the size to small: you will notice everything is ok now.
Then switch back to your favorite theme :)
