After a recent update of Whatsapp Desktop I can not change font size any more Ctrl + does not work any more. Is there a way of increasing font size. Windows 10.

If you're unable to change the font size in WhatsApp Desktop using the Ctrl + shortcut, you can try adjusting the font size through Windows settings. Here's how you can do it on Windows 10:

  1. Open Windows Settings: Press the Windows key on your keyboard, type "Settings," and click on the "Settings" app from the search results.

  2. Access Display settings: In the Windows Settings window, click on "System," and then select "Display" from the left sidebar.

  3. Adjust the font size: Scroll down to the "Scale and layout" section. Under the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" option, you'll find a slider labeled "Change the size of text, apps, and other items." Move the slider to increase or decrease the font size according to your preference. As you adjust the slider, the changes will be reflected in real-time.

  4. Apply the changes: Once you're satisfied with the font size, close the Settings window. The new font size will be applied to all applications on your Windows system, including WhatsApp Desktop.

Please note that changing the font size in Windows settings will affect the font size globally across all applications, not just WhatsApp Desktop. If you only want to change the font size in WhatsApp Desktop specifically, you may need to check if there are any in-app settings or preferences related to font size within the WhatsApp Desktop application itself.

Hi,

Here's a workaround:

Go to Windows SettingsEase of Access. In Display, under "Make text bigger", drag the slider to the right to increase the font size. Then, select Apply​​​​​​​.

Yes but that makes the size bigger on the whole PC and all other apps also ...

Im happy with the size of other apps ... ONLY whatsapp needs to increase a little.
