  • To change the size of text on Windows 11, open Settings > Accessibility > Text size, and use the “Text size” slider to make the font smaller or bigger.
  • To restore the default font size on Windows 11, set the slider to the initial position (100%) in the “Text size” settings page.

Although Windows 11 can set the optimal font size, some people may prefer to make the text on display larger or smaller depending on many situations.

If the font size is too small on apps and icons or you want to use the default font size, Windows 11 includes an option to change the font size without changing the display scaling, so you don’t end up changing the size of the elements on the screen.

This guide will teach you the steps to make the text on the screen larger or smaller on Windows 11.
