How to reduce the font on the computer?

When visual acuity leaves much to be desired, an increase in the font and icons of the operating system is only beneficial. Otherwise, large inscriptions only take up too much space and interfere with the perception of information and work. However, reducing the font on a computer or laptop is quite simple.

Implementation

Developers of software products from Microsoft have laid in their operating systems the ability to adjust many parameters for themselves. The user can select one of the predefined font sizes (Small, Medium or Large), and independently define any other (in dots per square inch).

In the first case, it is done like this:

  1. press the "Start" button;
  2. select the item "Control Panel";
  3. go to the section "Design and personalization";
  4. in the sub-item "Screen" click on the link "Resizing text and other elements";
  5. in the new window, select the item “Small” or any other;
  6. press the button "Apply";
  7. In the warning window, click the "Exit Now" button.

Sometimes “Small” size is too small, and “Medium” is too large. In this case, you can use another way:

  1. press the "Start" button;
  2. select “Control Panel”;
  3. go to the “Design and Personalization” section;
  4. in the sub-item "Screen" click on the link "Resizing text and other elements";
  5. click on the line "Other font size (dots per inch)";
  6. In the new window, set the cursor on the scale and hold down the left mouse button;
  7. move the mouse to the right until the sample size is most appropriate;
  8. press the “OK” button;
  9. in the previous window, click "Apply";
  10. In the warning window, click "Exit Now".

After logging in to your account, the font will be exactly what you need.
