Word and other programs brought miniscule font size by new pc. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought an ASUS N552V with very high-resolution 3840-2160 resolution.  I regret the purchase because some programs and websites are brought to a very small font.  I've done the font adjustment in settings to 350 (the max) still no solution.  I can still use Word 2010 but hitting some functions on the ribbon is like threading a needle.  The misspelling red squiggly line is so faint, it is easy to miss.  Hope someone can help me.

  • Hi,

    I would like to confirm if the display issue only happens to Word 2010.  How about other apps (non-Office applications and other Office apps) displaying in high-resolution Windows?

    I suggest we can change the resolution on Windows to have a try:
    Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution

    Please also try the suggestion in the following article to check if everything can be better:

  • Where did you adjust the font, exactly?

    You should look at the settings for resolution and scaling in Windows Settings (Windows 10) or Control Panel (older versions of Windows).
