How to customize display scale in Windows 11

The Windows 11 operating system comes with several options for the users to customize the system and one of them is custom scaling. Through scaling, users can change the size of text, apps, and other visual elements on the screen to make them look smaller or bigger.

While there are two different ways to change the scaling on Windows 11, in this step-by-step guide, we will show you how you can customize the display scaling in Windows 11 using the Settings application.
