Font Size in Forum Drop Down Boxes

This is not a problem just with iRV2 but I thought I would ask here anyway. I recently purchased a new desktop pc loaded with Windows 10, which I don't like to much. One of the many things that has grown to annoy me is the tiny size of the wording in any drop down box when you point to a thread title or even a forum title. I never noticed this with my old Windows Vista and Windows 7, maybe my old eyes are getting to me. I've tried everything I know like going to the Control Panel Display settings and adjusting every font size there is with no joy at all. I hope it is ok to ask this here.
Bill

Does your mouse have a roller wheel? If it does, maybe try holding down the control button and rolling it. This should increase the zoom on the screen. You can decrease it by going the other direction. Hope this helps.

Thanks but I am not trying to increase the whole page just the wording in the drop down box when you point to a post. Maybe it's just me but the wording in these drop down boxes seem much smaller than they did with older Windows programs. If you hover the pointer over a post title the smaller drop down box appears below the title and that's where I am seeing a difference from my older Windows programs.
Thanks Again,
Bill

I don't know of a way to change that box.

Does your new computer have a higher resolution screen?

The higher the resolution, the smaller the print.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

It's set at 1920x1080 the recommended setting. That's as high as it goes on my system.

That's the recommended setting on my display, but I have it set at

1600x900 to increase the text size.

If you set the resolution too low, the display won't look right.

I also have a setting, "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" set to 150%.

I did as Route66 suggested and went with 1600x900 and already had the 150% setting selected. That did help a little. The fonts in the drop down boxes increased enough to where I can read them now. They went from a font size of maybe 4 to about a 6.
