The text in my 17 inche secreen is small so I changed it to 125% (medium) but I also did not like that because it is now a bit big in the size. How can I make it something like 115%? because there are only 3 options avaiable (default - medium - larger) ad I don't know how to make it 115%.

Could it be a registry setting that could be modified? ie. find the reg setting and change 125% to 115%? – Steve Apr 15 '12 at 9:17

Go to that window where you adjust to 125%/150%, in the left panel, you will see Set custom text size (DPI), click and adjust, done.

Ah, beat me to it. If it interests anyone, there's extended instructions with screenshots on this Microsoft page. Just go down and expand the To create a custom DPI scale section. – Bob Apr 15 '12 at 9:19
@Bob, yes, that's better explained, for everyone :) – Mengdi Gao Apr 15 '12 at 9:26
