This post describes steps you can take to increase or decrease the font or text size in Windows 11.

The majority of people will be OK with the font size by default in Windows 11. But for some small groups, it might be too small or too big on devices with smaller screens, and not helpful, especially for people with poor vision.

With the use of wide screens and higher resolutions, it can be difficult to see clearly across bigger areas of the screen, or even double screens when your device’s fonts are small.

Also, if your device has a small screen, and the fonts are too big, you can adjust or reduce the size to fit on the screen.

If you have difficulty reading on your screen in Windows, you can easily change the font size so you can enjoy reading. In some cases, the font becomes too small to see clearly, and increasing it will allow you to read without straining your eyes.

The steps below will show you how to increase or decrease the font size in Windows 11.
