    Any way to scale just a few apps only?


    There's some apps that I use where the text is too small and it's fixed if I change the windows scale from 100% 125% but this also affects everything else on my computer... I just want to scale some apps to 125% while the rest of windows 10 stays at 100%. Is this possible?

  3. Is there a way to force DPI scaling?

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    Let me answer your query regarding DPI scaling.



    Please be informed that you cannot force a DPI scaling on a particular app, right now there is no option to do that. If you have set a custom scaling level to 250% and if the app doesn’t support, to run the app, you have to disable
    dpi scaling for that particular app.



    You may follow the below steps and check.



    1. You may right-click the application’s shortcut and then click Properties.

    2. On the Compatibility tab, select “Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings” and then click OK.

    3. Now check if you can use the application.



    Hope the information helps. Do reply if you need further assistance.



    Thank you.

  4. Any way to scale just a few apps only?

    Windows 10 Creator's update - Every time I undock, scaling goes to 150%

    We appreciate that you have checked your drivers and followed the suggested troubleshooting steps. Since the issue is still the same, this can be related to the new customer scaling settings that came with the Creator's Update. Can you follow the steps below
    so we can check it for you:

    • Click on Start then Settings.
    • Choose System then Display.
    • Under Display, select Custom scaling and set it to 100%.

    Update us on how it goes as we are eager to get this resolved for you.
