    Anyway to change the "immersive" application screen size?


    I use three video screens the "full" screen method splits tiles (on Start) and in other applications does not allow me to adjust the screen size to make things fit on just one screen.

    Also is there any way to change the font size in .pdf documents opened with the default reader (not Adobe)?

    Thanks

    Hello Ralph, and welcome to Eight Forums.


    In the Reader app, you could move your point to the bottom right corner until you see the + and - signs like below to zoom in and out to make the fonts appear larger or smaller.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks Shawn, is there anyway to change the font?

    I really need to change the window size I suppose I'll have to wait for the newest registry hack book if a registry is still used.

    Unfortunately, Store (Metro) apps open full screen and cannot be changed as far as I know.
