WinAero - very useful to customize Windows 10 font size, etc

Since the last major Window 10 updates, the old way to customize the icon font size went away. The closest way to make the Windows 10 desktop icon's font size bigger is through using Settings --> Display --> Advanced Custom Scaling. However, this does not yield the desired result, because it could end up increasing the size of fonts as well as icon size and everything else on the screen in proportion.

 I did a quick Google Search and found a utility called WinAero ( This tool allows granular customization of specific items, such as icon font and icon font size. On a 14-inch screen laptop with 1366x768 resolution, being able to use 11-point, semi-bold Segoe UI font makes it really nice to use the laptop again.
