Can Compatibility change resolution to other than 640x480?

    Can Compatibility change resolution to other than 640x480?

    I have one program (jigsaws) that is simply too small at my normal resolution (1920x1068). Changing my resolution to 1260x768 works but then I lose the benefit of the higher resolution in my other apps. As far as I can see compatibility lets me change the resolution for this app-but only to 640x480 which is too low. Is there a way, whether in Compatibility or otherwise, to set a special resolution for just this program? So it'll change to that resolution when this program runs & change back when this program ends? Thanks.

    Sometimes Compatibility reduces things to the bare minimum necessary to run a program, don't think there's much to be done except get a newer version. My wife does the jigsaw puzzles online so it's not a problem for her.

    Newer version isn't an option.

    Not sure why this was moved to Gaming forum. Sure the program in question is a game but the problem is generic. Maybe I'll repost & see if I can actually get a helpful reply.
