    A way to set different DPI settings for various apps?

    Just wondering if this is possible, I mainly keep my computer hooked up to my TV and my scaling is set to 125%, generally this is fine for everything, however there are some apps (particularly, Readily, from the windows store) that could be at 150% or so. Is there a way to give this app a custom parameter (Nothing in the apps settings that I could find) like this while retaining 125% for everything else?

    Hello Wiretap,

    I'm afraid not. DPI scaling is a global setting.

    Bummer. Oh well, guess I'll just have to sit up a little bit on my couch when using that app. God, how awful!
