Fix tiny gvim8.2 font on Windows 10
This short post was written to list a fix for "tiny text" when running gvim 8.2 on Windows 10.
With this "fix" gvim goes from:
Step #1: Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\Vim\vim82
Step #2: (1) Right-click on gvim and (2) click Properties
Step #3: (1) Click the Compatibility tab and (2) click Change high DPI settings
Step #4: (1) Select the Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by: and (2) select System (Enhanced)
Note: Selecting System also increases the font size. Selecting Application does not increase the font size.
Step #5: Click Apply
The font will likely look bad you can add:
source C:/Users/Zach\ Pfeffer/Google\ Drive/config/_vimrc
..to your _vimrc
I've also included how I source a common _vimrc I keep in a Google Drive (to share among other computers.
You'll put this _vimrc in your user directory (like C:\Users\Zach Pfeffer)
