I had to change it, click apply and it changed back. Then I changed it a second time, hit apply and it appears to have worked.
Remember this is typical for Microsoft. Nothing new going on here to me. Newer Windows users can be put off by this.
Windows 8.1 allows you to "Change only the text size" under Personalize / Display. It says "Instead of changing the size of everything on the desktop, change only the text size for a specific item". You can choose a larger text size and Bold type for Title Bars, Menus, Icons, and more.
So, i choose a larger text size and the Bold option then click on Apply. The changes take effect right away but, when i shutdown the PC at night and boot up the next day, all those sttings have reverted back to the default settings.
How can i make the larger text and Bold type choices permanent?
