    Changing font size in the Microsoft Press Guided Tours app

    • 0 Comments
    Feedback is starting to come in about the update to our Microsoft Press Guided Tours app (available in the Windows Store ). Sent along with a very positive review (“the app is a joy to use”) was a request for a new feature. The customer asked us to add a font size option. I’m happy to say that we can grant that request, mainly because the feature already exists. To change the font size: 1. Right click or swipe inward from the top or bottom to bring up the app bar. 2. Select Font . 3. Use the drop-down menus to choose from four font sizes. You can also choose between serif and sans-serif fonts. To learn more about the features in our app, watch our welcome video .
