Re: 4k res 'highdpi' file not working

Annotation 2019-10-30 143916.png Ivo, I checked my high dpi settings, I already had them set as you suggest. I ran StarTools without the "highdpi" file and got good results but micro sized as you expected, then I replaced "highdpi", rebooted and ran StarTools again. The screen remained as before wi...

Re: 4k res 'highdpi' file not working

Ivo, I think it's hopeless. I followed the procedure you sent me and downloaded the "High DPI" utility and tried every possible combination of settings. Still doesn't work right. The instructions and the "High DPI" utility that you sent the link for are for older versions of Win10, it even says so i...

Re: 4k res 'highdpi' file not working

I may be barking up the wrong tree... In watching some youtubes, I'm noticing that most displays look like mine. Sorry to complain. The GUI resolution is a little weak though, wouldn't you agree???

Re: 4k res 'highdpi' file not working

Hello, I am new on the forum. This post is particularly interesting to me because I just installed the demo version of StarTools on my high dpi Dell laptop and seem to be experiencing the same problem.
