I always find it interesting that I tend to get the same question a number of times from different users. Sometimes when someone invests in Geek Time, the question can be very detailed. This is one that isn’t a detailed question, but there is an unintended side effect of making what seems to be a basic change.
My eyesight certainly isn’t as good as it was when I first sat in front of a computer and that is likely true of many of you. This leads users to get into their Windows settings (see the dialog box below) to change the font size to something larger.
While this might make the text in dialog boxes and other elements of Windows easy to read, it can also backfire when dialog boxes have a fixed size. Some of the text may simply be cut off and it isn’t uncommon that buttons and scrollbars can simply be gone. The only solution is to change the font size back to the default. So if something just isn’t right with your dialog boxes, you may want to check the size set for fonts in Windows. If it is anything other than the default 100%, that could very well be the problem.
