    1. Hold down the “Windows key” and press “R“.
    2. Type “regedit” and click “OK“.
    3. Navigate to the following location in the registry.
      • Software
      • Microsoft
      • Windows
      • CurrentVersion
      • Explorer

    4. Look for an entry on the right side for “ThumbnailSize“. If you can’t find it, then right-click on “Explorer” and select “New” > “DWORD Value” and type “ThumbnailSize” for the name and press “Enter“.
    5. Double click “ThumbnailSize” and set the value to a number between “32” and “256“. The higher the number, the larger the image thumbnails.
    6. Close the registry editor and you’re ready to view your photo thumbnails in the size you wish.

    İyi gόnler!

    It's really on recommended settings:

    You can change the recommended DPI setting to make text, apps and other items bigger.

    I have the same problem as the OP, but on a 3200x1800 screen. "Extra Large" icons setting in View give thumbnails that are hardly any bigger than those in the (regular) "Large" setting, but which have wide bands of empty space down each side, as per OPs first screenshot.

    I posted a question about it on SuperUser two years ago, but 350 views later nobody has come up with an answer
    windows - No on High DPI laptop (Win) - Super User

    I bought an external monitor in the end. It is 1920x1080 resolution and on it, Windows works as it should do - "Extra Large" icons are 75% bigger than "Large" (measured linearly - the long side is 63mm vs 23mm) .

    You can also wind-down the resolution on your main monitor, which helps, but, err, isn't about time there was a better fix??!

    Rescaling ("Change the size of text, apps and other items") doesn't help.

    I have tried the registry hack above, but it doesn't work for me either....
