Burp Suite Display Settings

The first time you run Burp, it is worth taking a moment to check your display settings. Burp lets you select different sized fonts for different parts of the UI, and you may want to change these settings, depending on your screen resolution.

First, look at the text shown in Burp's menus, tab captions, buttons and other text.

If you want to change the main UI font size, go to the User options tab, then go to the Display sub-tab, and edit the font size in the User Interface section.

Then restart Burp and check whether the new font is suitable.
