Re: Font size

Font size of what? WinSCP follows system font size. Why do you want WinSCP to use a different font size than the rest of the system?
Anyway, you can change file panel font size and internal editor font size.

WinSCP seems to not follow Win10 UHD settings. On my screen UI fonts look rather small.
It would be great to have the option in the future to change fonts size.

There's a link in my post above to the font size settings.

Anyway, what version of WinSCP are you using? Can you post a screenshot of your problem?

Thank you, Martin

Here's a screenshot showing WinSCP UI next to another program I'm running just to compare font size:


I read the advice here on the forum how to increase font size, and from my understanding the steps provided from the link in your signature achieve the same results. Basically, changing font size through the windows settings is an OS tweak, which I already did by the way as I'm using an UHD monitor. What I'm missing is the option to further customize the fonts in WinSCP itself.

Since I'm using a second monitor which is a HD 1080 screen, I run WinSCP on that monitor and I'm fine. Only I wish it was possible to have larger fonts for better reading on UHD screens and not-so good eyes anymore like in my case ;)

You can set different "scale" for each of your monitors.

That's what I already did. In the screenshot I posted above the other software in background is using the scaled fonts for the UHD monitor.
Like I said before, I'm using WinSCP in the HD monitor only, which is fine.

So are you saying that WinSCP does not adjust to the scale of the monitor? What version of WinSCP are you using?

I think it does adjust only it seems as if that's as big the font can be in WinSCP.
Sorry, I do not understand what you mean.
Can you post a screenshot of WinSCP next to Windows File Explorer?
