I'm currently trying out Windows 10, and found a setting that makes windows and text larger without changing the screen resolution. It even worked for the FFB client.

Howto:
Right click on desktop
Choose "Display Settings"
From here you can customize your display.
(if you have more than 1 monitor) Choose the monitor you want to customize.
Then use the feature: Change the size of text, apps and other items.

You can't shrink things, but you can make them larger.

Hope this helps those visual impaired like me.

Isn't this about the same as the Magnifier which has been available in Ease of Access settings since at least Windows 7? Even if it is, it's a good thought; I never considered suggesting it previously when people discussed resizing.

This is something different than the magnifier (which also exist in Windows 10)

As with any resizing, it isn't a crisp as the original.
I made 3 screenshot (notice the icons on the desktop remains the same size, while the FFB window and taskbar changes size):
Original size
125%
150%

(The game being played, was just a random pick on the gamefinder)

I used a textsize function under ease of access in Windows 7, but it only changed the size of text. Could be I just missed the one you refer to.

I'm referring to the text size setting under Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display in Win 7. There's three settings, Smaller (100%), Medium(125%) and Larger(150%).

Yeah, on Linux, you can use one of the many magnifiers to get the same result. Just install Orca or something.

Are people trying to play this down or just try to be confusing?
Man, this is just amazing. Very good news. This has been missing for a long time. Worth to get win 10 just for that.


If there is some way to do this in win7 please let me know.

i think there is the same in windows 7. The issue is that it is limited to 150%.
And about those screenshots, i am sure the aim was not to start another topic about clawpomb ...

Any way to do this without resizing other windows/icons etc. I like it but not worth it just for the java client. Would be neat to have the client be larger and that's it.
