    Font size in wine 5.0 on 20.04 LTS

    Installed wine 5.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 and tried running a Windows 32 bit program but the display of the Windows application is so small it is almost unreadable.
    Is there a way to change the font size in wine or could it be done some way in the windows application?
    I tried to change the Ubuntu Display parameters but that changed nothing.
    This same Windows program worked fine on Ubuntu 18.04.

    Try adjusting the DPI in the "Graphics" section of winecfg. This may not work properly for all apps, but it's a start. I use 192 DPI for my Surface Pro 3.

    Where do I find the Graphics section of winecfg? /usr/bin/winecfg and winecfg-stable have nothing about Graphics.
    Can you provide me more info about getting to the Graphics configuration?
    Thanks.

    Changed the desktop size from 800x600 to 1024x768 and now cannot get a window large enough to see an Apply changes button,,,My BAD!
    Can I restore a base winecfg to get back to a valid desktop size?

    Is there a way to restore winecfg to its defaults without reinstalling wine?

    System: 4k monitor (TV), 20.04 MATE desktop, WINE 5.0.2

    I have the same problem as cearlp. I changed a number of settings in winecfg GUI to try and get the menu line and drop downs in ACAD 2000 to produce a larger font. In the process, the winecfg display became corrupted and now shows only about 1/4 of the winecfg GUI which prevents restoring the winecfg GUI. The programs I run under WINE, ACAD 2000 and IrfanView both run o.k. [However, I have never discovered how to make the ACAD menu fonts larger, and the ACAD 2000 setting for fonts tops out at 14pt.

    Might I be able to modify the config file for winecfg? If so, where is the config file for winecfg located and what is its name? I drilled down mark/.wine/dosdevices/C:/windows/system32, but do not see a winecfg file there. I do see winecfg.exe, but guessing that is of no value for the problem at hand.
