Change System Fonts With A Single Click

Every user customizes their computer's settings to some extent, some more than others, and the display Is one of the most customizable features on the Windows platform. The system font sizes, Is certainly part of this equation. However, It does take a number of steps to change each and every one In Windows 10, so In this tutorial, I will show you how to change them, as well as the font weight with a simple click of the mouse.

The following applies to Windows 10 versions prior to 1809. In order to natively change the font (text) size for Icons, title bars, message boxes and so forth, you'd have to navigate to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display. You can then change the font size of each Item via the drop-down menu, as per the Image below.

Not only does It take a little while to access this setting, but If you also want to change the font weight of each Item to bold, you'd have to apply It Individually. In the following tutorial, I will demonstrate how to change all this with a simple click of the mouse, by using a third-party tool named System Font Size Changer. You can download It via the official website.

The process Is extremely simple, so without further delay, let's get this started.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the tool and executed It, a message will be displayed asking whether you want to save your default settings. I strongly recommend doing this, so hit Yes.

Step Two:
The tool's Interface will now be displayed, with an array of options. For the purpose of this tutorial, I will change the Icon size to 8, as well as the font weight to bold on every Item as Illustrated below. This Is performed with a single click of the mouse, by hitting Apply.

Step Three:
For the changes to take effect, the tool will log off my system, so It's very Important to save all changes prior to clicking OK. I've saved everything, and clicked on that very button as arrowed below.

Step Four:
Here's my Icon settings In their default state (In File Explorer), before I applied the above changes.

Last Step:
And this Is the result after I used the tool. As you can see, the font size and weight (bold), have been applied accordingly. There's a significant difference between It's original and modified state.

Final Thoughts:
The good thing about this tool, Is that It's a portable version, meaning there's no need to Install It hence no changes are made to your PC. Moreover, the settings that you apply, do not affect any other parts of the operating system. To further customize your OS, checkout the other options In the tool as well (Title bar, Menu etc).

If you wish to go back to It's original state, either apply the default settings that were backed up In Step One, or simply reverse the changes that were made In Step Two.
