I don't know what happened but suddenly the font size Windows is using is larger. The font for content inside applications is not affected. I can find no setting to change it. This screen shot demonstrates the issue:

Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • Try to change the settings in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalisation\Display (default is 9 I think). – User552853 Nov 13 '17 at 6:05
  • Did this issue only occur on Notepad? what's edition of your Windows 10? – Waka Nov 13 '17 at 7:03

Change the size as the following steps:

Settings -> System->Display, under Sale and layout, Change the size of text, apps, and other items to what you want: enter image description here


Another way

Go to Start menu => Control panel => Display

In there you can find "Custom size of items" - The first link use these display settings will directly fetch you to the Settings app where you can customize the size of the text, other stuff, and applications.

And - "Change only the text size" . In there you can set things
