  1. "Override high DPI scaling behavior" is reset upon close


    Hello,

    To improve visibility of a exe file I have I go through these steps:
    - "Properties"
    - "Compatibility"
    - Clicked on "Change high DPI settings"
    - Clicked on "Override high DPI scaling behavior"
    - Selected "System (Enhanced)"
    - Press "OK"
    - Press "Apply"

    After seeing the improvement on the scaling of the specific exe application, once I close it and reopen it, the scaling is back to the default setting. This makes me change the setting every time prior to opening the application.

    How can I make it so that it remains under these settings?

    I tried to add a registry entry but couldn't find how exactly.

    Thank you "Override high DPI scaling behavior" is reset upon close :)

    :)

  3. Override high DPI scaling behavior setting is reset after closing program

    I've been trying to adjust compatibility settings for an older game (The Witcher Enhanced Edition), and I was able to get the game properly running after disabling "Override high DPI scaling behavior" in compatibility settings for the program. For some
    reason, every time after exiting the program, Program Compatibility Assistant would prompt me that it had changed my settings, and the override high DPI setting would be re-enabled. To circumvent this I tried disabling PCA through services and group policy
    editor, but the setting still kept reverting even though the prompt from PCA stopped appearing. I've discovered that I'm able to change every other compatibility setting without them reverting, but every time I attempt to disable high DPI scaling override
    it always reverts after closing the program. How can I prevent this issue? It's extremely annoying to have to change the properties for this program every time I want to run it.

    Edit files in the WindowsApps folder or Override high DPI scaling behavior for Windows Apps

    I'm trying to fix some visual issues with some windows apps in regards to high resolution monitors. Normally with any other app I can use the Override high DPI scaling behavior for Windows Apps setting on the .exe file or create a .manifest file to fix
    the scaling issues. If I could edit the manifest file for the windows app or if the Override high DPI scaling behavior for Windows Apps worked for windows apps I could fix the issues.
