i changed the font size to 400 percent in lightroom and now it's so big I can't access the menu to take it back to normal. Can anyone help?
I did exactly what you said and this is what happened. I tried several times. I appreciate you trying to help me. Lana
First, click the shortcut to launch Lightroom.
Then, immediately press and hold Alt + Shift until the the Reset preferences dialog appears.
I followed your instructions but the reset preferences dialogue does not come up. This is a screen shot of my entire screen. As you can see at 400 per cent I can't access any way to move it. Any more suggestions? Lana
The instructions I posted are for Lightroom Classic, but I see now that you are using Lightroom CC, so I'll get a moderator to move this thread to the Lightroom CC forum, where you're likely to get better help.
Lightroom CC provides the same method for resetting its preferences. Follow these steps:
1. Do the menu command Help > System Info to verify you're running LR CC 1.5 (the latest version). If you have an earlier version, do Help > Updates. After the update, do Help > System Info again to verify you're on LR CC 1.5.
2. While holding down Alt and Shift, click on the shortcut you use for starting LR CC. You should see a dialog asking if you want to reset its preferences. See this screen recording for an example:
3. If you still can't get that to work, exit LR CC. In File Explorer, enter this folder path:
(Substitute your username for your-username.)
Then delete the file "Lightroom CC Preferences.agprefs". Restart LR CC.
None of the suggestions worked so I ended up having to uninstall Lightroom CC. I certainly appreciate everyone who tried to help me. Thank you again.
To help others, were you able to get the reset-preferences dialog to open in step 2?
So far this also appears to be the only option for Lightroom Classic as well.
Why not put a scroll in all the dialogue boxes?
Actually it was my windows task bar hiding the Restart Lightroom button. My moving the task bar I was able to restart Lightroom and thus reset the font size down to Medium.
