Are you having difficulty reading the text on your Mac? You have the ability to use the macOS Monterey display scaling to increase text size. By default, your Mac will choose the size of your user interface elements, for example, texts, buttons, and menus to fit on the screen. If you are part of the people for whom this works well and don’t have any need to change it, there is no need to read any further.
If you find that the text, as well as the on-screen elements, are too small or too large. You might want to scale the resolution to larger or smaller.
If you increase the resolution; more elements will fit on your screen. If you scale down the resolution, features such as text, menus, as well as buttons will begin to appear larger. This process is pretty similar to the process that has been followed in previous versions of macOS, this only takes a few seconds to do. If you find that you don’t like the altered scaling, it is easy to reverse the process, it is also easy to try another resolution.
How to scale your display in macOS Monterey?
- Click on the Apple Menu in Mac’s top menu bar
- Click on System Preference
- Select Displays
- Toggle the resolution to “Scaled”
- Select one of the resolution options that satisfy your requirements
Apple does warn that using a scaled display can cause performance issues. Many third-party programs, for example, Photoshop, will not run well when the resolution has been scaled down.
