Adjust Display Scaling in Windows

This article will explain how to make all objects on your Windows display appear larger. This is separate from increasing font size, and from increasing zoom in web browsers.


 Instructions

  1. Right click on the desktop. From the drop-down left-click on "Display Settings"

  2. On the new window that appears, scroll the right side down until "Scale and layout" appears

  3. Under "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" there is a drop-down with options for 125%, 150%, and 175%. (should already be defaulted to 100%) Select whichever scaling fits the user’s needs the best.  Higher scaling will mean more need for scrolling, potentially left and right, in addition to up & down.

 To set the scaling back, follow the same instructions, but select 100%
