Hi

 

Yes, you can do this. This procedure is actually a font size change for the logon screen, but it also changes the size of the logon profile icons.


1. Click the Start button and type regedit in the Search box. In the ResultsRight Click regedit and select the Run as Administrator option.

 

Navigate to the following key:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts

 

2. Backup the value you will be changing. 

 

Right click the Fonts key in the left pane, select Export. In the Save As dialog, select the Desktop as the save in location. In the File Name box type  LogonBackup. Click the Save button.

 

If anything goes wrong, you can go to the Desktop, right click the LogonBackup.reg file and select Merge to restore the registry value.

 

3. In the right side paneDouble Click the LogPixels value. In the Edit dialog box, change the  2 digit value using the following guide.


60 -(100% Font Size) -Default size

78 -(125% Font Size)

90 -(150% Font Size)

4. Exit the Registry editor and  restart the computer to test the results.

 

Regards,

Thanks, the icon size was very irritating.

I suppose you can do almost anything if you're acquainted with the registry functions and know where to look.

Even a digit value of 100 is still small, but I see you can beyond, though this messes up the welcome screen if you go too far.

Very helpful, so now I can start the day with a smile!
