Why Do the Fonts on My System Look so Different?

Fonts that display in your menus, title bars and so on, are controlled by the registry settings and the Display Properties > Appearance settings of your computer.

If your fonts display too large or too small, you may have incorrectly set the appearance for an item:

  1. Navigate to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display.
  2. Navigate to the Appearance tab and select Windows standard in the Scheme field.
  3. Click OK.

Your desktop should now display normal.
