  1. Is it possible to change the ratio of a window?


    My situation is the following:
    I have an application that when I run produces a window. The window is too large for my screen (both a laptop and an attached large screen).
    I have changed the scaling of the large screen and now I can see almost all of the window.
    On the other hand, this is not the scaling I prefer, cause now all the other programs I use (IDE's, browsers etc) are too small for my taste.

    I would ideally like to reduce the size and ratio of that application window only.

    However, the window is not a normal windows (10) window, (I suspect the designers do it that way), because for example it can not be moved around the screen (it is fixed in the center of the screen) and it seems it can not be resized as other windows using the mouse.

    I am starting to suspect, the only way is modifying the screen scaling. Any comments on this will be appreciated.

    :)

    Is it possible to change the ratio of a window?

    Hi, first it depends whether the window can be resized at all.

    Your first point of call would appear to be the developer- have you tried asking?

    There is a small utility I sometimes find handy you might like to try to experiment manually- this allows dragging and resizing windows even if you do not have access to their borders:

    If that shows it's possible, you could do that using a small Autohotkey script using this statement:

    Is it possible to change the ratio of a window? [​IMG]

    Autohotkey is free, well supported.

    For example, you might write a script that
    - launches the program
    - when window visible, resizes it.
    - exits.

    Perhaps 5 lines.
