Win 10 not working. Went to settings to revert to win 8. The settings screen will not pop up other than an instant flash.
Problems with 10- won't let me sign in to outlook (outlook wont respond). wont let me connect a monitor. typing delay. no settings screen. won't let me open downloads from internet. no email unless i sign in from chrome search engine.
I am having repeated problems with text and folders sizes. I had set them up to suit me a while ago, but every now and then they change, apparently by themselves - perhaps after an upgrade? I certainly don't remember making any changes myself.
At the moment the folders I have on my home screen are very small and bunched up into the top left hand corner of the screen. And the text labels to the folders are almost too small for my tired old eyes to read.
How do I get the folders to be bigger, the same size as I had them in Windows 7? And how to I get the text labels to be the same size as they were before? I already have text size set to 175%.
Also, when I open a folder or list contents in some programs the text looks fainter than it should, and has a strange look to it - certainly not the same as when I was running Windows 7; it's much poorer.
I tried the below but the area is grayed out. What can I do? Finally, if you want to make systemwide changes to your font settings, you can do so here by looking to the toolbar on the left side of the Font control panel. For example, to increase or decrease the font size for, say, menus and icons, click Change Font Size. Choose the item you want to change, then select a size. (You also have the option of ticking the Bold box, which is actually kind of a nice tweak for things like title bars.)
In Win.7 you could modify the font for the windows, both size and font itself. Win 10 will not all me to modify size, which is stuck on 9pt, and there is no option shown to change the font to Times from Arial.
This means I have had to alter the scaling to 125% so that the icons on the taskbar are big enough, and the text on the windows readable. This, in turn, messes up the resolution on Skype and another program. How you can get the ability to change font and font size?
I installed the upgrade to W10 and I think I should have waited. Things are slow to open and lockups, frozen screens and streaming problems are happening all the time. I see there is a go back to Windows 7 option and I may take it for now, and do a clean install at a later date.
After upgrading my Surface Pro from W8.1 to W10, I have discovered the hard way that Windows 10, even in tablet mode, is not touch-centric. (I also think that the W10 UI is much more cluttered by comparison, but I realize that that is a matter of taste.)
How can I revert my Surface Pro from W10 back to W8.1?
I installed the Windows 10 update on the twenty-fourth of October this year. The first thing that I saw was a Rundll32 error or something. Next, OneDrive stopped working. A few days later, GTA V stopped working. Now, the Start Menu doesn't work, meaning if I click the Windows logo, it'll prompt me to sign out to "fix" the problem. So, I tried to go back to Windows 8.1 (64-bit flavor) one week after the update-a quarter of the deadline to update. Instead, apparently "the files that were needed to take you back were deleted", even though they're in plain sight according to file explorer-$SysReset, $WINDOWS.~RT, and $Windows.~WS I believe. Is there anyway that I can go back, or do I have to cough up another $90 to go back?
I just installed Build 9879 over Windows 7 on a spare machine and it went as expected except for the size of the Icon fonts and size of the taskbar. They both are much larger than they were on Win 7. I can't remember how to make them smaller. I make the icons themselves smaller (medium) by using View on the desktop but the fonts and taskbar are way to big. How to reduce them under Win 10?
how to increase the font size and/or font type in the start menu? All the regular "personalize" options are basically for desktop and text and borders and the like, but nothing for the menu itself. Turning the magnifier on is NOT practical.
When the computer comes back after being in sleep mode for a while, all the icons and fonts are in much larger size and with very poor definition. If I shut down the computer and start again, everything comes back normal.This issue only started after the upgrade to Windows 10.
When I started the recovery process to revert back to Windows 7, I saw a warning that I would need to reinstall some programs after reverting. I aborted at that point. What programs I would need to reinstall?
I have an OEM Gateway computer and I recently bought a new desktop on Black Friday. I want to revert my Gateway desktop back to Windows 7 and do a factory restart so I may sell it. However, when I try to download the iso from Microsoft, it tells me my key is an OEM one and to contact the manufacturer.
So I went to Gateways website and it says to press F8 during boot and do a bunch of stuff but pressing F8 when it says to does nothing and Windows 10 boots like normal.
I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.
I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.
E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).
I can easily change the size and font but can't find how to set it as the new Default setting. Can it be done?
Using Mail for Win 10 for first time, as that is what appeared for my Outlook email account. I found today that when using either CC or BCC a 'Return' occurs immediately after entering an email address, thereby moving the cursor to the line below, requiring moving the cursor back to that original line so that another email address can be entered, and again and again.. Never saw this before so probably/hopefully a fix is coming.
While typing an email I touched the Caps Lock key mid-sentence and typed one capital letter in error. I touched that key turning off the caps lock function and the light went off. But from that point on I could only type in CAPS regardless of what I did. I had to close email and restart it to have it return to normal.
How to be able to get to the login screen and actually log in by booting through a USB. But then when I try to revert, it restarts and when it reboots. It gets locked in a screen that has a blue Windows logo and a black screen with nothing else.
