Increase or Decrease Font Size on Windows 11

If your eyesight is weak, and you do not see small fonts clearly, you should make your system’s fonts a little larger, so you can read them easily. It’s pretty easy to increase the default Windows 11 text size, also applying system-wide settings.

In this article, we will take a look at increasing the size of your system’s fonts.

First, click on the Windows Start Menu and search for Settings, or you can use keyboard shortcuts Windows+I, to do so quickly.

Once you get to the Windows settings, select “Accessibility.”

Next, in the Accessibility window, click on the “Display” in the left sidebar. Then, on the right side, locate the slider labeled “Make text bigger.”

Click and drag the circle on the slider as much as you want the system font size.

As you drag the slider, it will show you a percentage number that shows the new size of your system font relative to the default of 100%. When you set your desired font size, then click apply.

Immediately, all your open windows will visually refresh, and you will see the font size changes reflected in them.

After that, close the Windows settings, and the new font size you chose will always apply unless you change them again.

If you need to adjust the system text size again, just open the Windows Settings, then Accessibility, then Text Size and use the “Text Size” slider.

If you desire to turn off the larger fonts completely, set the “Text Size” slider to “100%.”
