Visual Studio 2017 and 2019 Extension for easily changing the Visual Studio font sizes by selecting one of three font size profiles.
The three font size profiles ( Profile Normal, Profile One, Profile Two ) are maintained by entering the desired values in the Font Size options page.
When required, the user can switch to a different font size profile by selecting the desired profile from the Tools menu (see second below image).
Quickly set these Visual Studio font sizes when a profile is selected:
These font settings were included because these are the ones I normally adjust when presenting, Skyping, or hooking up to a projector.

The user has three font size profiles they can set up.
To ignore a setting in a profile set the value to zero or a negative value.
If an entered value is greater than zero and less than nine, the value will be set to eight to avoid problems with a font too small to see.
The normal profile is intended to be the profile that represents the profile for daily use.
The other two profiles can be defined and used for other use cases such as presenting at an event, Skype, work projectors, etc.
I use this extension on my desktop to easily switch between 4K resolution, Mac resolution, and 1080p.

Cloning and Building
For cloning and building this project yourself, make sure to install Extensibility Tools 2019 extension by Mads Kristensen which enables some features used by this project.
I learned a lot from this outstanding extension. https://github.com/tunnelvisionlabs/PresentationMode Sam Harwell gets the credit for showing us all how to change the font sizes in Visual Studio using an extension.
I authored this extension for VS 2017 and 2019, and created font size profiles.
