How To Make Text Bigger (or everything for that matter) On Your Windows 10 Computer

As I age here at “What’s On My PC”, my eyesight does not get any better. This tip here is most often requested by people (in my age group) whom I have assisted over the years.

To make the text bigger (or everything for that matter) on your Windows 10 Computer, do this:

To make just the text on your screen bigger, select Start Settings Ease of Access  > Display , then adjust the slider under Make text bigger. To make everything bigger, choose an option from the drop-down menu under Make everything bigger.

Here is how to gain some screen space by “auto hiding” the Windows 10 Taskbar…

If you didn’t know, the “taskbar” is the bar that stretches across the bottom of your Windows 10 screen. It is typically visible, no matter where you are in Windows; but did you know you can make the taskbar “auto hide” itself? In other words, if you are not using it, the taskbar will drop down out of view, but if you want to make it re-appear you simply move your mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen and the taskbar will reappear. I currently have all of my PC’s to auto hide the taskbar to give me that extra screen space or view.

To activate “auto hide” in Windows 10″:

  1. Place your mouse pointer in a blank area of the taskbar and right mouse click.
  2. When the menu appears, click on “Taskbar settings” and the “Taskbar” settings window will appear.
  3. Toggle the switch “on” for “Automatically hide the taskbar in desktop mode”, then simply close the Window (and the “Taskbar” should now auto hide).

I have one of these AK1 Mini PC’s connected to a TV in my man cave and I can tell you it is all you will need for basic computer operations. As a matter of fact, since I purchased the AK1 Mini PC it has become my main computer and I use it to post daily on “What’s On My PC”.  Below you will find the specs and one feature that I took advantage of was the expansion area in the base of this mini PC where you can install an additional 2.5 inch SSD or HDD (up to 2 TB).
