Windows font sizes and contrast

more options

Hi all,

Recently, my win 10 crashed and although I managed to recover some operative, I found to my horror that the desktop screen text size and contrast cannot be changed now. The current default setup is a real eye sorer, so I opened personalization settings but there is nothing on how to change this very theme, other than other posts suggesting entering the regedit system files. I am very reluctant to tinker with this given the Win10 application crashes. Running maintenance doesn´t do much. I notice that Firefox also has access to this very text size and font theme for web domains, but I am very wary again of tinkering an unknown. What the heck can one do, confidently without the system resetting itself? One thing is for sure, it seems Win10 home edition update 21H1/2 versions is basically treating users very badly, as if MS wants to ignore them. Bless us all when the embedded caption suggests "ready to update to Win11". I´m highly inclined to bin it.

Is this problem global to Windows, or is this problem only within Firefox?

At the Windows 10 level, did you find this dialog:

If you can't resize to match the Display and GPU resolutions then your O/S is damaged and a complete Reinstall is the only fix. Since no-one here knows your specs or system resolution this will be harder to know what is happening. Worse you might need a computer shop to verify the crash and what O/S damage it did. Win11 unless you need something Win10 works just fine. Most places aren't using Win11 since they just migrated to Win10 this is a money ploy by M$.
