    High DPI scaling


    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.

    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.
