To know how to organize your workstation on Windows 10, there are a multitude of little tips to know. In this article, we will discover together how to enlarge the font of the operating system interface.

A handy feature in many ways. For people with sight problems, for example, they no longer need to focus on the text or get closer to the screen to see something.

Finally, this option can also concern people simply equipped with a large screen and who prefer to have less text and bigger than dozens of lines displayed that are difficult to read.
