How to increase the size of text and icons on BlueStacks 5

How will this help?

You can now enlarge the size of text and icons uniformly with Interface scaling and enhance your overall experience, especially if you are using a high-resolution monitor, on the latest version of BlueStacks 5.

Download the latest version of BlueStacks 5

To do this, simply head over to the Settings menu and select your preferred percentage under the "Interface scaling" option. Gear up to get the most out of BlueStacks 5 without missing out on the smallest of details. 

NOTE: This is only applicable to the size of text and icons on BlueStacks 5 and not within apps.

How can I do this?

1. Launch BlueStacks 5 and click on the gear icon on the home screen to access the "Settings" menu.


2. Under the "Display" tab navigate to the "Interface scaling" option and select the percentage according to your preference. 

NOTEWe recommend using 100% scaling on screens with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 or lower to avoid coming across any issues.

3. Once you have made the selection, click on "Save changes"


4. Next, click on "Restart now" to apply the settings.


You will now be able to see enlarged text and icons, as shown below.

Before: Interface scaling 100%


After: Interface scaling 200%


Thank you for choosing BlueStacks 5. We hope you enjoy using it. Happy Gaming!
