Font size is too small

The font size of ETS Viewer is too small. How can I increase it?

Screen resolutions vary quite a lot and so it is possible that on some machines the default font size may look too small or too big. To alter the font size, you may either use Tools -> Font Size menu for small changes or you may run ETS Viewer with a command line option that allows you to alter the font size like this:

java -DfontSizeIncrement=10 -jar etsviewer.jar

You can specify however large increment you want in the font size.

If you have a high resolution/4K monitor that is causing the ETS window to become very small, try these solutions.

Tracking progress while using multiple machines

I may work on Enthuware tests from a desktop at a library or from my laptop at Starbucks, etc. and at night from my computer at home. Can I continue with an existing session and track my progress?

Yes, you can do that.
To do this, you need to keep your work folder in a shared location such as a USB drive (or a cloud drive such as DropBox) that can be accessed from all your machines.

When you open an ETS file in ETS Viewer for the first time, it automatically creates a folder in the same directory in which you have the ets file. It keeps all your data such as Progress Report, Notes, and test statuses in this folder. You can change the location of this folder by Right Clicking on the top node in the Test View tree. If you change it to an empty folder on your shared drive, you will be able to share all your data across multiple devices. If you have already started taking tests or creating notes and want to share those on other devices, just copy over the current work folder to your shared drive.

See this image to see and change the location of the work folder:
How to see and change work folder for the question bank

To take a backup of your work, you just need to backup this folder.

Important: If you use a shared folder, make sure you don't use multiple instances simultaneously. Since all the instances will try to modify the same files, the files may become corrupt and unrecoverable.

Standard Tests vs Objective wise Tests

Do the Standard Tests and Objective wise Tests contain the same questions? Which one should I take?


Standard Tests and Objective wise Test are two different strategies for attempting the same questions.

Standard Tests are preconfigured tests that cover all the questions in the question bank. Each Standard Test contains questions from all the objectives. If you take all the Standard Tests, you would see all the available questions. Therefore, if you take an Objective wise test after taking all the Standard Tests, you will not see any new question.
You should take Standard Tests if you have already gone through a book and want to prepare for the final exam by attempting tests that are similar to the final exam.

Objective-wise Tests pick random questions from the question bank only for a given Exam Objective.
You should use these tests if you are studying from a book and want to attempt questions on a particular topic to solidify you understanding on the subject. If you take an Objective Test and then a Standard Tests, there is a high probability that you will see some of the questions that you have already seen on the Objective Test.

Some question banks may have Practice Tests as well. They pick random questions from the question bank only for a given Toughness Level. It might be useful for advanced users but we do not recommend this option.

Besides the above options, you can create your own tests under Custom Tests.

What should I do if I never want to repeat a question?

Take Standard Tests one by one. You will cover all the questions in the question bank and you will never see a duplicate.

Automatic Updates

Is the question bank updated frequently? How do I get the updates?


We update the question bank immediately if we feel any improvement is needed or if we find any mistake in the material. Upon updation, we increment the version number of the question bank.

ETS Viewer will automatically notify you if a new version is available and it will also let you download the new version.

You may also manually download the question bank file (.ets file) from our website and replace your existing question bank file with it.

See answers without taking a test

Can I see answer to a question without sitting through a whole test?

Yes, absolutely.

When you double click a test criteria node (for example, Test 1 under Standard Tests), it starts a regular Test. In this mode, you can’t see the answers before finishing the test because this mode is meant to simulate the actual test environment.

You can, however, view the questions in a test and answer them one by one, checking whether you answered a question correctly after answering each question. To do so, first of all make sure that "Show Answers by default" option in the Tools menu, in unchecked. If this option is checked, whenever you open a question outside of a test, the answer will be displayed and you won’t be able to attempt answering that question.

Show Answers by default should be Unchecked

Now, instead of double clicking on a test criteria, do a right click and select Open option.

Right click on a Test criteria and select Open

It will show you the details of the Test Criteria. On this window, at the bottom, there is a “View Questions” button.

Click on View Questions

This will pop up a list of all the questions in that test. Now, you can double click on any row to see that question and then use the Next/Previous buttons on the Question dialog to see other questions.

Double click on any question

Now, you can answer the question and click on "Evaluate" to check whether you answered correctly and to see the answer.

Mark your answer and click Evaluate

Note that in this mode your responses are not saved anywhere and there is no scoring. Answering a question correctly or incorrectly in this mode does not change the question’s Leitner status either.

Leitner Mode

This is another way to take short tests and to see answers without finishing all the questions. Just double click Leitner Mode icon in the Study tree of ETS Viewer and then click on "How to use Leitner Mode" link on the right side to learn more about it.
