Windows 10 - How to make the text larger?

When I am in Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display I am trying to change the drop down boxes that start with "Title Bars" "9" and to tick "Bold" but they are an orange colour and do not allow access/selection.   I know I can change screen resolution, and access 125% or 150% for size, but these are not really what I want.    Any ideas how I can just make the text larger using the dropdown boxes?

Not helpful!

What I want is for the text to not be microscopic. I want the text size across the board to be larger and easier to read, without screwing up the appearance of everything. There were ways to select text size in previous versions of windows. Now there's just the slider in the appearance tab, and if you use it, it messes up everything at larger zooms. I don't want to zoom - I just want larger text!

While we're at it - how do you make the text larger on internet explorer 11?

It's been a while, but I think #3 on this page is what you want

Quoting from website: (They have screen caps, etc) 

Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click on desktop and select Display settings.

2. Scroll down and tap or click Advanced display settings

3. Scroll down and tap or click Advanced sizing of text and other items

Hi,

It sounds like your device has been updated (upgraded) to version 1703 (the Creators Edition). For some odd reason the setting for this has been removed in the Creators Edition.

Because of this, WinTools has created a tool that restores this functionality, it is safe, free to use, and it works great. Here's the link:

Let us know how it goes,

-Richard
