    Thanks for your help - you may be right about the windows update.

    I will leave it at that for now and just move closer to the screen!

    Cheers

    Thanks All,

    I have resolved the issue by adjustment in Settings/System/Display - Scale and Layout. Changed the size of text, apps and other items from 125% to 150%.

    This has fixed the Reckon issue ( see attached) and has impacted other programs and applications, but I have been able to adjust the font sized within those programs.

    Rav, That changes the size of the font on the top menu bar but the font does not change in the body of Reckon. No change from the posted screenshot

    Hi @owenslattery

    That’s the extent of size changing within the program itself but if you go to the display settings on your PC, you can play around with the options for Font Size & Magnifier to achieve this.

    Note: The sizing changes will be across the board though, NOT just in RA 😬

    (I have a client in her 80s who has these display settings huge 😁)

    @owenslattery Just had a look at your screenshot but that doesn’t look like Reckon Accounts (“RA”) (which is the category you’ve posted under)

    Are you using RA or is it actually a different Reckon program (or even Intuit’s QuickBooks Online ?) 🤔

    Thanks Acctd4,

    Aware of magnification option, but that was not what I was after. Something seems to have changed recently and I cannot get the display back to its previously satisfactor settings. Other programs and apps seem OK

    About says its 'Reckon Accounts Personal Plus2022 Release R1'

    Ohhhhh … that’s not RA 😬

    Not sure with PP but if you’ve not changed anything within the program, it may be due to a Windows update affecting the settings ? 🤔

    could be due to your screen resolution perhaps
