How to change the font size on Windows 11

If you want to enlarge your system fonts on Windows 11 to make them easier to read, you can easily increase the Windows 11 base text size, which is applied system-wide, by using Settings. Here is how.

First open the Windows settings. To do this quickly, right-click the Start button on your system tray and select “Settings” from the menu that appears. Or you can press Windows + i on your keyboard.

In Preferences, click Accessibility in the sidebar, then choose Text Size.

In Settings, click Accessibility in the sidebar, then click Text Size.

In the Text Size Settings, find the slider labeled Text Size. Click and drag the circle on the slider left and right to adjust the size of the system font.

Use the Text Size slider to change the system font size.

As you drag the slider, you’ll see a percentage just above it, showing the new size relative to the original size of 100%. With “200%” the system fonts appear twice as standard, for example. When you’re done, click “Apply”.

After setting the text size you want, click "Use."


All open windows will be visually updated immediately and you will see the text size change. Some larger fonts may not fit the user interface perfectly. If so, you will sometimes – but not always – see ellipses (three dots) when words don’t fit in the space provided.

A example Windows 11 text at 200%.

Thereafter, close Settings and the new text size you have selected always apply, even after restarting your system. If you need to adjust the system font size again, just go to Settings> Accessibility> Text Size and use the Text Size slider. To turn off the larger fonts entirely, set the Text Size slider to 100%.

By the way, Windows 10 allows you to change your system’s font size in a similar way, but the option is in a different part of Settings (Ease of Access> Display). Much luck!
