    How high is the DPI?

    I went to 300% in a test:

    Shutdown still works. May be needed after seeing that chaos.
    Menu seems fine... but most left items are a problem in the height: they don't scroll.

    Thank you Edwin!
    I didn't see that one: guess I'll have to increase my DPI.

    Nah, reason is that text seems to be white in my browser.

    Dave, good luck finding the button/option, it should be there somewhere at the right.

    Thanks, both of you, didn't see that initially 'cause it is white text on light gray! :-)

    @Edwin Using 1920 x 1080 @150% DPI or 3840 X 2160 @ 300 DPI (4K) seems to be the maximum scaling value for the Clock & Start menu.

    Also using a higher DPI may cause some 3rd party program menus to be too large and extend past the edge of the display.

    Currently I am running my 50" 4K TV at 3840 X 2160 @ 300 DPI or my 27" Monitor running at 1920 x 1080 @150% DPI.
