Bluestacks BBM Font Size To Small

I have enjoyed the Bluestacks emulator using it only for BBM on my windows desktop. However the only nuisance I found was that the portrait view for BBM was just way to small when it came to the font size. This may not be anything new to change, especially for the hardened Bluestacks users, however it is something I felt needed some sharing.

 

To change what essentially is the width buffer, you will need to open up the Registry:

(Standard Disclaimer of caution, changing registry entries may break things, change at your own risk)

 

regedit

 

- Click Start then Run or Windows Key + R

- Type: Regedit

- Click Ok

- Browse down to the following key and modify the Width binary value: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BlueStacks\Guests\Android\FrameBuffer\0

- Note your current value, change to Decimal and set to eg. 500

- Click Ok

- If Bluestacks is open, Restart via system tray icon.

  1. Great tip. Been wondering how to do that

  2. I settled on a 600×600 height and width in order to maintain the menu in the lower of the screen and non-stretched look.
