Font size in SourceTree for Windows

Hello,

Is there a way to increase microscopic UI font size in SourceTree?

They appear too small, and I see no option to change the size.

SourceTree 1.6.11.0, Windows 7 with default font size settings.

You cannot change this inside SourceTree, you need to tweak the Windows settings to make the letters bigger.

Very uncomfortably small font - a shame it can't be changed! This in the one big reason I am forced to use other inferior products but at least there I can read text.

Hey everyone, I found a way for windows users to zoom in considerably in Sourcetree, by fiddling around with the compatibility settings! It pretty much doubles font size and makes it a lot more legible. However you must either be using two monitors, one a smaller one (such as a laptop) or do something every time time you open Sourcetree. 

Automatically: If you have two monitors, one a smaller one (such as a laptop)
First you need to set your smaller monitor as your main display. Then go to the Sourcetree.exe file, right click, "Properties",  "Compatibility", "Change high DPI settings", then enable the High DPI scaling override as shown below.

Now it will stay zoomed in the same level it uses for your smaller monitor when you switch to the large monitor. 

Manually changing display every time you open Sourcetree
Go to the "Change high DPI settings" and enable the "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" as before. This time also enable the  "Use this setting to fix scaling problems feature", as shown below.

Now before you open sourcetree change your display settings to zoom in as much as you can on your main monitor. Then open Sourcetree, it will take these settings and be more zoomed in. Now you can revert the display setting change and Sourcetree will stay zoomed in until you next close and re-open it.

If Balazs answer isn't sufficient, file a change request at jira.atlassian.com

That appears to be 10pt font. That's smaller than normal, but hardly microscopic. Have you tried changing the OS font size?
