    DPI 150%+ Issue with some apps being very big.


    Hello,

    I am having trouble running Guitar Pro & MuseScore at 150%+ DPI, everything is big, with Guitar Pro at 100-125% everything is equally small (No Difference in 100% vs 125%)

    I tried every combination of the DPI settings in the properties menu of Guitar Pro, it doesn't fix the issue.

    See Screenshots

    I am on Build 19041.329

    Go to:
    Settings>System>Display and reset to default.
    Then reset your programmes to their default settings and see if it makes any difference.
    Also check with the makers' sites for any obvious solutions.
    I'm not familiar with those programmes,so can't comment further.

    sorry that was no help, you mean to just disable the scaling 'turn off custom scaling', I have tried that one, it just shows the smaller icons version of the software.

    I have uploaded my full settings and a screenshot of other applications that are working, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    ok the best can do is 149% IPD, change mouse icons to default (large) and text (Ctlr+I, display) to 123%
    as soon as i go to 150% Guitar Pro and MuseScores is broke.
