Hi, all!

Is it possible please somehow to change the font size of the WAMP menu? It is very small and very difficult to read when using multiple screens.

Thanks!

Alexei

Hi,

There is a somewhat rustic way to change the font used for menu items, but it is likely to be much uglier and with truncated text. It may also create errors in the wampmanager.ini file and prevent Wampserver from launching.

- Validate About by double-clicking on the Wampmanager icon.
- Options Tab
- Check radio button "Expert Menu Colors Settings By Ini File With Icon"
(In place of "GUI Menu Items Custom Color Settings" witch is default value)
- Validate Save Options button
- Exit About

Edit the file wamp(64)\wampmanager.tpl
Under the section [Menu.Left.Settings] add a line :
MenuFont=Arial,10,clBlack
Or replace the line ";MenuFont..." commented by the one above
Save the modified file.

Restart Wampserver.

Thanks a lot for that!

I do see some text truncations and misalignments but server works fine aside from that.
A good balance between convenient reading and not too misaligned/swallen text can be achieved with fontsize of 10 or 12.
