    UI Scaling for UHD not being applied to all Programs


    Greetings!

    I recently jumped the 4K Bandwagon with the purchase of a new TV I mounted to the Wall and while I managed to get most of the stuff running at 4096 x 2160 and still being readable some stuff just doesn't scale well despite my best efforts.

    Maybe I'm just missing something but is there an option to have programs like the Battle.net Launcher, which appears to be totally unaffected by the Windows Scaling Scaling settings, appear to be bigger/more readable? On the same PC I also use an older version of PhotoShop ( Pre CC ) which does not come with the experimental 200% UI feature making it practically unusable since my migration from 1080p to 2160p.

    Thanks in Advance =)

    I'm going to guess and answer "no".

    Programmers for Piriform's CCleaner were able to write their program that scales well upward. They did have a problem scaling downward, now supposedly corrected. Programmers for Auslogics' Disk Defragmenter have not done so, yet? Its UI font is quite tiny on UHD. One small component of LibreOffice didn't scale up.

    If scaling to 200% doesn't work, you could try changing the font size. Use Winareo Tweaker and change the default font size. Also make sure you are using latest graphics driver from manufacturer, as generic Microsoft drivers may not support all features.
