Solved Custom Text Size Reverts to Default Whenev PC is Restarted

Windows 8.1 allows you to "Change only the text size" under Personalize / Display. It says "Instead of changing the size of everything on the desktop, change only the text size for a specific item". You can choose a larger text size and Bold type for Title Bars, Menus, Icons, and more.


So, i choose a larger text size and the Bold option then click on Apply. The changes take effect right away but, when i shutdown the PC at night and boot up the next day, all those sttings have reverted back to the default settings.


How can i make the larger text and Bold type choices permanent?

I don't think I have run into this before. Just for grins, after clicking Apply, try rebooting right then. See if it writes it to registry permanently. You shouldn't have to do that but it is worth a shot to see if it is in fact not being saved to the Registry.

Thanks for your reply. I tried it and it works! Text sizes and Bold type are staying as i set them through several shutdowns, cold boots, and restarts. Thanks again!
