  • Hi Joe, 

    I have the exact same issue as you. I had to reinstall Windows in January because it crashed, and since then, some Sage 50 windows are so small they are very hard to read. I've tried a lot of things, nothing works.

    I also tried you fix and it didn't work. Maybe I'm missing a step?

    1. I have exported the 3 folders you have listed onto my desktop.
    2. I selected all three and clicked Merge. 
    3. I said Yes to all the modifications Windows said it wanted to do to my computer
    4. I rebooted the computer

    When I opened Sage 50, nothing had changed. What am I missing?

    Thanks for helping me. I'm even thinking of switching Accounting App if Sage doesn't want to play nice with Windows and there is NO help at all from the company. They don't even answer my emails.

  • I do not know what's missing. 

    There is a couple of things you can try. 

    1. install sage 50 on your desktop. if sage 50 works well that means the font file is good. if sage 50 still have the same issue. means font might still miss. you might need a font file from somewhere else. 

    2. There are some other settings you can try: 

    you can read the following MS post "apps fonts are too SMALL in windows 10"

  • Thank you for responding, Joe. 

    The MS post doesn't help, because it changes the fonts in all apps and I only have the issue with Sage 50. I don't have another computer to install Sage on to see what it would do, all other computers in the house are Mac.

    When you say "install on my desktop" do you mean change the file location of Sage 50 from my program files to my computer desktop? How can that affect font size?

    This is very frustrating as it was working fine until the reinstallation of Windows in January. Now, it has become very difficult to use Sage. 

    I reread your post and it seems that you have taken your .reg files from another computer? That might be the difference. I've taken them from my own, so I'm guessing that merging them does not change a thing.
