  • Unfortunately, you cut of the numbers in the lower left corner of not only the editor window, but the package manager window too.

    As you can see from the screenshots, the size of the text is proportional to this number. The first screenshot is 100%, and the second is 68% and looks smaller. This is the magnification/zoom of Visual Studio so naturally, the lower it is, the smaller (further away) things look, and the larger it is, the larger (closer) things look.

    So set it to 100%. You can either click on the little down arrow to the right of the number and select 100% from the menu that appears, or you can hold down Ctrl and scroll your mouse wheel up.
