Note: You won’t be able to change font size for the title bars if you have configured the DPI scaling level to anything other than 96 DPI (100%).

You don’t have to mess with any system files or settings; the option we’re looking for is located directly in the Control Panel, so here is how to get to it and configure it:

1. Right-click on Start and select Control Panel from the context menu.

7. Click Apply to save changes. A ‘Please Wait’ screen will appear, which will go away once the new settings have been applied.

Note: If the size of the title bars has not changed a few minutes after applying them, then log out and then log back in- changes will surely kick in then.
