In Windows 8.1/8/7, open Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display > Make text and other items larger or smaller.
Here you can increase the font size by 125% or 150%. make your selection. This works as follows:
- Smaller – 100% (default). This keeps text and other items at normal size.
- Medium – 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.
- Larger – 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.
Click Apply and Logoff.

Please note that this option will not make the icons and other items bigger.
