A common complaint with Windows 10 is that everything (icons, text, taskbar, etc.) appears very small on the screen on certain monitors.  

Follow these instructions to enlarge the view:

1. In the Search Windows box in the bottom left of the screen type "display" and then go to Display Settings.

2. In the box that pops up, click the link at the bottom that says "Advanced display settings."

3. In the new box that pops up, click "Advanced sizing of text and other items" at the bottom of the screen.

4. Under "Change size of items" click the link that says "set a custom scaling level." 

5. In the drop, select the percentage you would like.  You may need to experiment to get the view how you like it. 


6. Changes WILL NOT take effect until you have logged off and logged back on or rebooted.  Locking the computer and then logging back on is not the same.
