  1. Wrong "Settings" font size


    Hi everyone,

    I am facing a strange problem with my new laptop. I actually got two brand new PCs, both Asus ZenBooks 14 with same specs, save for the different CPU, RAM amount and SSD. Also the first one sports a matte display while the second has a glossy one. I actually want to keep for myself just the second one, and then I copied all data and personalization from PC 1 (matte) to PC 2. They now have same programs and apps installed, same settings and same windows versions. Still, the PC 2 has a problem in settings app, in fact I noticed (and the screenshot will prove this) that PC 1 had smaller and nicer font size throughout the whole app. This does not apply in other microsoft apps (e.g. Maps, where as you can see both screenshots are exactly identical in terms of fonts and spacing). I included 2 screenshots from the xbox settings page since there is where the difference is evident the most, tough a closer look will lead to seeing the differences even between the other screenshots, i.e. the windows build page (both of them were taken when the vertical cursor on the right was at the lowest point possible).


    Of course, both systems have the same dpi scaling (i mean the 150% suggested font and window zoom, given they have a 14" screen), and toggling that option does not solve the problem. Also, since I have the 1809 update, I can no longer find aid in control panel display options, because it has got removed. I have tried restating the PC, with no luck.


    Another strange thing I noticed is that if I try to set zooming to 100% (= no zooming), the xbox settings page still has that icon messed up, so my issue does not depend on that option at all.


    (OS language is italian, sorry for the incovenience) Image order:
