    I have a problem with too small X button to close a modal window when my web site is viewed on tablet computers. 

    Using KendoUI with MVC. I have a window like this:

    @(Html.Kendo().Window().Name("​mywindow").Title("​My very own Window Title text")


    What I want to do is make the title text and especially the X to close the window about 2x bigger to make it easier to use on tabled computers. I this possible? If so, how?

    Hello Baldvin,

    To change these properties you will have to use ​css. Kendo themes use sprites for their icons and these can be resized by using the zoom property. In the case of the X button, adding this to your stylesheet will accomplish what you're after:


     Hope this helps.

    Hi Baldvin,

    Another option is to change the default icon via custom one:
    .k-window-titlebar .k-i-close{
        background-image: url('/* ... */');

    Regarding the title text, the following CSS rule should help to increase it: 
    .k-window-titlebar {
        font-size: 30px; /* set font-size */
