HD Laptop makes everything look so small!

Posted 19 July 2015 - 03:55 AM

I got a new dell laptop with a super high res display. It works great with almost all apps, but some seem to be poorly made and are super tiny on my display. Is there a way for me to make it larger?

Already did that, but some applications seem to not care.

Some applications are based on resolution alone and there is no way around it other than changing it. Sucks, but hopefully there aren't that many you use that are in that minority.

If you can't fix it by changing font and icon size etc in your display settings, well...

Some applications (I'm looking at you, EVERYTHING EVER MADE BY LINE6) like DAWs use their own layouts at fixed sizes. This is amazingly stupid, but then they are amazingly stupidly designed.

These ones you fix by *moving your head closer to the screen*.
