In Visual Studio (2012 in my case), is it possible to decrease (or increase) the font size of a user's Solution Explorer? I'd like to decrease it to save screen space a bit.
- Go to Tools->Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors
- In "Show Settings for" chose "Environment Font"
- In "Font" replace Automatic to for example, Arial and change size.
Change the font size of that setting, all Font size in the Explorers (Solution Explorer, Server Explorer and Toolbox) and menus will change.
You can set that in Tools, Options.
In my case, I got really small fonts when opening .CS files, small font in Package Manager Console, small font in Find window (opens by Ctrl+F), but other fonts (like fonts for .TS files) were fine. I was able to put custom font size through Tools->Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors but I had to set the size to be 14 instead of the default 9 value and it helped for .CS editor but hurt the .TS editor and it did not modify the font in the Find window.
The only solution in my case was using CTRL + Mouse Wheel Up functionality to enlarge the fonts. I was able to return to the default font sizes everywhere and it also adjusted my Find window font size.
