      Metal applications running on a windows platform do not use larger fonts when the user has selected larger fonts via the desktop properties. The font style (that is, the font face) does not need to change, but metal should use the font size requested by the user.

      This is a serious problem for users with any visual impairment. It's also a usability problem for everyone, since metal applications do not look like "real" applications, written for the platform.
