Make text and apps bigger

Is it difficult seeing text or apps on your computer screen? There are simple ways to make it easier to see on Windows.

Make text bigger on your screen

If the text size feels too small when navigating through Windows, you can make the text bigger. This affects, for example, title bars, menus, and icon texts.

  1. To go to the Ease of Access settings on your computer, press the Windows key+U.

  2. Under Make text bigger on the Display tab, drag the slider to the right to increase the size of the sample text.

  3. Once you're happy with the text size, select Apply. Windows scales up the size of all text.

Make images and apps bigger on your screen

In addition to the text size, you can also make everything else on your screen bigger, including images and apps.

  1. To go to the Ease of Access settings on your computer, press the Windows key+U.

  2. Under Make everything bigger on the Display tab, expand the menu and select the option you want.
