I have installed Windows 10 and I am trying to install my office 2007 onto the system and the dialogue windows that opens up asking me to tick the agreement box is so small and compressed that I cannot actually tick the box! I have tried tabbing, using arrow keys, hitting enter to no avail. 


I was going to upload a screen shot of it but got fed up and closed the installer after several attempts of closing a restarting everything.


Anyone have any suggestions on how to increase the size of the installer box? And no you cannot simply expand the window I have tried that and it there are no dragging arrows or maximise and minimise buttons either.

That's pretty crappy.


It mightn't help at all but you could try decreasing the screen resolution before starting the installer.  Generally such dialog boxes will be defined in pixel dimensions and not DPI or screen% so it should make it bigger.

Of course the pixel dimensions will be the same so it mightn't help at all since the mouse pointer just takes bigger steps.


Plan B could be to try the accessability options for Windows.  There's stuff like key assist and screen zoom which might help.

Is the Windows DPI settings set to 100%? Weird things happen when it's set to 125% or 150%.

yep drop the screen DPI to 100% and if still too small drop your screen resolution a bit.
