    scaling problem

I do right click - display settings and it says in red "Some apps won't respond to scaling changes until you sign out". I did not do any scaling changes! It is still 100%, but since recently I saw twice this icon mess and this message. Fonts in apps look a bit weird too I think.

scaling in windows 10
I am looking for a way to scale to full screen. Have read some where that 10 locks the resolution in the AMD Catalyst Control Center, any workaround or wait for an update from Microsoft.
