Is it possible to change the correction box size? Since I'm using a 1080p monitor and whenever I'm trying to change a word, the correction box is real small and hard to read. I would like to be a happy to like double the size of it. I don't know if you're able to do that, can you?

In earlier versions of Windows, you had lots of options such as adjusting the font size but all we can find is Windows 10 are display settings. You can open your Windows display settings by right clicking on your desktop and choosing Display settings.

By messing with the Display settings in Windows 10, you may be able to double the size of the correction menu. But a lot of other things will be affected.

And maybe that's OK. The default screen fonts in Windows are teeny-weeny, probably too small for many (if not most) people over the age of 30 or 40. When I got my Windows 10 computer, I pumped up the screen fonts by a significant amount. At first everything looked too big, but after living with the changes, I came to realize that these are the settings that I truly need.

Another strategy: reduce the number of items displayed in the Correction Menu from nine to two (or three). There is also an option to show only the choices, without the hints and instructions. Doing these things won't change any font sizes or weights, but they do reduce visual clutter which helps with legibility.

It is still possible to force Windows 10 change most of the resolution and desktop settings that were available to change in Windows 7. There are a number of free applications; one I use is "Change Windows 10 Fonts" from WinTools. However, this will not change the Dragon Correction Box’s fonts as Dragon has hardcoded these.

I also struggle with this so I wrote a replacement application - it is both free and open source and you may check out this topic on this forum:
The user has complete control over the transparency, font (family, style, size) and dialog size and location. I'm almost finished with a very large vocabulary but the code is quite stable.
