  1. Scale and Layout setting?


    I have a 14 inch laptop and I was wondering what would be the best Scaling and Layout? Should I leave it at the recommended level of 150% or 125%?

    I tried the 125% setting, and looks more professional, the layout of apps and windows are a bit smaller, but seems appropriate.

    Would it be an issue if I change it from the recommended (150%) to 125%?

    :)

    Scale & Layout

    Hi,

    Your question does not contain all the required information needed for us to help you. For us to better assist you, we'd like to ask the following information:

    • Which Windows version and build are you using? Type winver in the search bar and press
      Enter to find out.
    • Are you having issues changing with the scale and layout setting or you intend to change it?
    • Are getting any error messages?

    Meanwhile, most of the advanced display settings from previous versions of Windows are now available on the Display settings page.

    • Select Start and select Settings >System>Display.
    • If you want to change the size of your text and apps, use the dropdown menu under
      Scale and layout. In Windows 10, you can no longer change the text size of a specific item.
    • To change your screen resolution, use the drop down menu under Resolution.
    • To adjust your color calibration, search "calibrate display color" in the search box of Settings and follow the directions.
    • If you don't see a setting you're looking for, try searching for it in the search box on the taskbar.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
