    My system font size in Windows 8.1 decreased after the update. Anyone else notice this? I had to go into Display settings and manually increase the size of the font in each category from 9 to 10.

    Unfortunately, I don't know what the default size was before. I just know that after the update my system fonts appeared visibly smaller.

    perhaps a video card update was included which has altered some settings

    I thought that too. I checked my settings and I was running the Intel Graphics drivers, not Microsoft. To double check, I uninstalled the Intel and tried the Microsoft drivers. No change. So I reinstalled the Intel drivers and fonts were still small.

    I just checked another of my systems and the fonts are the same as before the update.

    Must be peculiar to this Inspiron 5720 (native resolution 1600X900).
