fonts periodically revert to small text

I use the font toggle to increase the font size 182%. Works fine. But periodically (once a week or so) windows reverts to a very small font. I have to change the font setting to 181% to engage the Apply button and fix it. It will be good for days. Then it happens again, and I change the setting back to 182%. Then it happens again and I have to repeat the process. How do I stop this from happening? I just rebooted the computer and it reverted again.

    Hi @don davis ,

    Probably, it would be related to your account sync settings.

    You could test to disable "Remember my preferences". If it stops changing fonts, you could clear stored settings and then sync them again.

    How to stop backing up items

    To stop backing up your settings and remove them from the cloud, turn off Windows backup settings on all the devices connected to your Microsoft account. Once this is done, you'll need to remove these settings from your account. Here's how:

    Go to account.microsoft.com/devices  
    At the bottom of the page, select Clear stored settings
