    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.

  4. High DPI scaling

    Only solution to this Problem is have set your Resolution to a lower DPI.. Which Kills the purpose of Buying of 4K Monitor..
    Most of Game developers and app designers are changing their content accordingly.
    But apps with no development support may not work for a long time.

    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.
