Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution setting also?

Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Its cute you are trying to understand and find solutions for something I have lived with my entire life on Google. I also have an occupational therapist from work assisting and have completed testing from a specialist in this field.I am well aware of this option and use the hot key on my computer to switch to green monchrome with black background. Have done for 10 years.However this does not solve the fundamental font question which will help me massively. Canyou help or not?
Microsoft Office Technician: caraleneK, Office Engineer replied 1 year ago

You will have the changes all font you self in the products like power point

  1. PowerPoint 2010 and 2007 - In the Editing section, at the right side of the Home tab of the ribbon, click the Replace > Replace Fonts...
    PowerPoint 2003 - Choose Format > Replace Fonts... from the menu.
  2. In the Replace Font dialog box, under the heading Replace, select the font you wish to change from the drop down list of fonts in this presentation.
  3. Under the heading With, select the new font for the presentation.
  4. Click the Replace button. All the text in the entire presentation that used the original font is now replaced with your new choice.

This does not help. IT thought it could somehow be changed in computer configuration settings from the command line?Otherwise going back to Office 2003 it changing to Apple may be the best option.

No. Font size is not a problem. There is nothing wrong with my eyesight.The problem is the font.
Microsoft Office Technician: caraleneK, Office Engineer replied 1 year ago

thanks for your feedback I looking for a possible fix for you please test this ..

Right-click on your Windows desktop; then click on the "Personalize" option. Along the bottom, you will see an icon for "Window Color". Click on it. It will offer an option for "Advanced appearance settings." Click on it. Under "Item", select "Menu", then change the font or font size. This will change the Ribbon text.

Waiting your feedback

Have tried this before I asked for help here. It is how I changed the Windows 7 settings. However it does not change Office ribbons. I think it used to on XP etc.
Microsoft Office Technician: caraleneK, Office Engineer replied 1 year ago

Thnaks a lot for your feedback ..Have you look at the Use customize by right clicking on the existing ribbon. Check “use large icons” under options tab.

try re-setting the Menu size in the Display options -- right mouse click on the desktop, choose personalize and then choose menus from the bottom option. (Done from the WINDOWS desktop -- not from Office itself).

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
None of this stuff works and seems to be different ways of getting to the same menu.Microsoft appear to have misinformed you as I have already changed this and it does not alter Office. Others online complain of the same thing. This used to work pre Windows 7.
