Hi,

I don't know about you guys but I think the address bar font size is bigger than the rest of the browser. I've compared with google chrome and I prefer the same size across the UI. Is there any way to change font size for the address bar? I've looked around in the settings but the font size option there is for the webpages only.

I like the new Edge, but my OCD triggered on the address bar font.

If you're having OCD problem, take a deep breath and think about something else.
the font in the address bar is aligned with the rest of the UI size. if it were to become smaller, the rest of the UI should become smaller with it as well, otherwise it would become worse.

 

by the way there is also this topic:

@sengot We appreciate you sharing your thoughts! Yes, as @HotCakeX mentioned, our team is aware of this feedback and is actively considering different options.

 

Let us know if there is anything else we can help with.

@HotCakeX Hmm, not sure this works as intended on Edge Dev on Linux (thank you for that, btw!) for me. The font used for the address bar is huge.

Other parts of the UI look much more reasonable:

Anything we can do about it?

Well not yet, but you can send feedback using feedback button on Edge (shortcuts Alt + shift + i) and request to add an option to let us change scaling of the Edge UI
