    High DPI scaling


    Hey,

    I bought a 4k screen yesterday and I have this annoying issue with scaling.
    In 100% I can't see anything, so the solution is windows scaling.
    The issue is that a lot of programs doesn't work well with this method and makes the app almost unusable.

    Example:

    There is a solution for this problem?

    :)

  3. Windows 10 applications are blurry

    I've already tried changing the DPI Scaling settings, but it either makes my screen too large and blurry, or too small and difficult to read. I also tried disabling DPI scaling on high DPI screens by going into the properties of certain application, and
    it worked for some applications, but other applications don't have a compatibility tab for me to disable DPI scaling. I'm on a Dell Inspiron 7547.

    Are you talking about font scaling? Because I know the Surface Pro 4 is set to something like 200% Font Scaling and it works quite well. Except for very old win32 apps that don't scale at all.
