So I've got this issue with my font size in WitW. The game has always run just fine for me out of the box using the standard preferences, but today I wanted to see if fullscreen would make any real difference over just running in a maximized window. I switched over the Fullscreen in the preferences screen, restarted the game as directed, and had some weird graphical issues that I unfortunately didn't take a screenshot of (a lot of artifacting in areas of the UI that weren't the map, i.e. the unit info area on the right side of the screen). So I switched back to good old Windowed mode in the preferences and all seemed fine... at first. Now my font size is massive and I can't seem to change it back. This is causing me big issues in the game, since the text in information-dense screens all bleeds together and makes things illegible (which, in a text-heavy game like this, is not ideal!).

I would love to attach a screenshot but after writing up this post a minute ago and attempting to post it, I was informed that I couldn't post attachments OR links if I've had less than 10 posts. So I've uploaded the screenshot to Imgur, where it has the ID iUrozmo (again I would just post the direct link but that apparently is not allowed, which makes resolving this issue much more of a headache! I get why these security precautions exist, but it does seem just a BIT strict!) Hopefully you can figure out how to put the link in directly above (hint, go to the Imgur site and then add /iUrozmo to the URL)

Is there a fix for re-adjusting the text scaling in the UI, or do I need to actually reinstall?

This is weird as there should be no difference in font treatment between window and full screen. It should scale them based on the system settings.

Okay, so I just figured this out, on the off chance that anyone runs into a similar issue. I don't know if it's a Windows 10 thing, or specific to this model of laptop that I had just bought... even though the screen resolution was set to 1920x1080, apparently the system was set to default to 125% zoom on "some" programs (but not all???). At any rate, right clicking on Desktop and going to Display Settings, then sliding the first bar you see all the way to the left, solved the issue.

I guess Microsoft thinks everyone needs reading glasses.

Thank you SADrone. I experienced the exact same problem and was able to fix it thanks to your post.
