Screen resolution so tiny
« on: April 17, 2019, 10:36:18 AM »
Hey all,

I found some very old posts that relate to very tiny font, buttons...  Anyone found a fix so far?

New HP laptop, Win10...

I have tried different resolutions, magnification... nothing seems to help.
The X on each tab is so small, I have trouble hitting it most of the time
CTRL + does't even activate zoom

Kinda lost, thoughts?

I don't see the problem in your image.

I have 2 win 10 PCs. No issues.  Never tried on my surface thought,.

Well, the way this site imports the pic, it's huge which hides the issue

Guess I just have to change the screen resolution to like 350% each time I want to use BS :(

Thanks, Rick

open BS3 then right click the icon o the task bar the right click on Beersmith 3 and select properties.
click Compatibility
Then click Change High DPI Settings
Try both Program DPE and if that doesn't try Override DPI.
Close and restart after testing each option.

Thanks Jomebrew for the suggestions

I tried each and no luck.  Even tried the troubleshooter which also tried DPI...BS3 never changes with any setting change

Even when BS3 starts up, the logo is super small, maybe 1.5"h x 2"w

The only fix so far is to go into the screen resolution and set "Scale and Layout" to 350%

Thanks again
Rick

Hey all,

I really want to find a resolution to this.
Here are my Win10 15" laptop display settings
A screenshot of my tabs and of BS

Notice how micro tiny BS is?

The X on each tab is so small, I have a hard time landing on it to terminate them

Help, anyone please
Rick

Update,

Well I finally got something that works better

Found that setting Override High DPI and set "Scaling performed by system" worked to get the application size correct or more normal

It's blurry as the note says but that is so much better than micro mini
