Windows 10 did a large update on my computer this week, took 3 restarts and over an hour to complete!

Once it was completed my icons were huge!!! (They were not huge before the update).

I quickly remedied this – yes I wear glasses for reading small print and my kindle, but I have a 23” monitor and don’t need to wear glasses to read the screen etc., or write this blog post.  

To change the text and icon size, go to Settings.

Then choose, Ease of Access

On Display, move the Make Text Bigger slider to the left to make the text and icons smaller.

Along with changing the size of the icons and text, all my PDF documents were associated with Microsoft Edge, they had previously been associated with Adobe Reader. 

I have two computers that experienced the recent Windows 10 update, the same thing happened on the second computer as well.  Haven’t updated the third one yet.

I like my PDF’s to open in Adobe, not Edge.  To fix that issue, right click on one of the PDF’s files, click properties at the bottom of the page,

Click change.

Choose the application you want the PDF’s to open with. Click OK.

Click either OK or Apply
