    Greetings

    I am having issue of text font size for tiles being very small. Its probably because of high PPI of display. Previously I had 1020 and font size was easily readable. But in 950 XL I have to concentrate hard to read what's the Calendar or Email Tiles say. So can we change the Font size of tiles?

    have you tried changing the display scaling to a higher value? And changing the text size too in settings - one of these might do it

    Changing Text size in ease of access doesn't affect it. But when I changed it from "Display settings" from 350 to 400, the text in tiles got a bit larger but the whole interface of phone started giving ugly look. e.g Text messages interface seemed to be deformed

    so forget the text size setting; there's a third setting I remember - in display options, is there an option selected to show more tiles? Is it on? Switch it off if available - that should reduce the number of tiles in the screen width thus making them bigger

    Though I'm not sure if this options exists for the 950xl

    post a screenshot of the start screen with the tiles if you can. I want to see how small the text is considering the 950xl has a big screen

    And yes reducing transparency of tiles doesn't help the readability

    Hah, you have the opposite problem I do, I want smaller text on the tiles myself, so I can see what my pinned websites actually are;-]
    With 4 weather websites, they more or less look the same, at 300%. I can go to 250%, which helps, but boy that text gets small everywhere, and I (by some miracle, as a software engineer for a long time) have nearly 20/20.
    I hope someone figures out how to make yours bigger, which in theory would solve my problem too.
    I posted more or less the same question several months back, also wondering if I could have my tile that grabbed the website background, like in 8.1, which would've solved my issue too.
    Simple pinned tiles on W10m are a bit "hampered", compared to 8.1, IMO.
