Font in microsoft apps too big

2017-10-20, 4:42 AM

Hi,

 I have a problem since last night, all the microsoft apps are displaying fonts that are way too big, I think I might have used a keyboard shortcut without knowing. All the writings are too big, I tried changing the resolution, things remain out of proportions, I checked the partially-sighted mode, it's not enabled. If someone could help me, that would be nice. Thanks in advance !

Have you tried restarting or logging out/in again? I will sometimes get this issue when plugging in my external monitor, and some apps stay with the high scaling setting used for the 4K display.

Also check the scaling settings in Settings to make sure they are correct (keep in mind that some apps will require you to logout/in for the changes to take effect).

I tried restarting the computer but it didn't change anything

 

The thing is, it is not just Word that had this issue. All other microsoft apps have it too, all the writing underneath my icons on the desktop are too big ... I reaaly don't know what to do, it is not such a big issue, but it makes using my computer a lot less enjoyable. All the menues are huge, it looks like an old lady's computer

R-click on the screen - Display Settings - Under "Scale and Layout" change the scale to 100%.

Reboot and check again.

That solution makes other things way too small to view.

 

Any other suggestions?

I fixed this by reinstalling Windows 10 over top of itself.
