If my question is in any way unclear to you, please read this link.
I'm wondering if there is a way to set up an application to appear larger.
The reason I'm asking this is that I recently discovered WinSCP and love to use it as an FTP client, but even though it's very useful and practical functionally-wise, I'm having a big problem with its interface. Its text and icons are too small for me to read and use them comfortably. It gives me a headache if I use it for too long.
The application developer could make something, of course, which would be great, but still, what if other applications are made too small (presumably made when screen resolutions were lower) as well, and the developer doesn't do anything?
This could also be useful for visually impaired people (even though there are options to magnify the screen, they might want something more automatic and more specific) or just someone who wants their chat/social networking/etc. application huge so they can read them without their glasses at night. Not to mention games created with a fixed (small) window size such as packed Flash games.
This is a feature made relatively easy on most websites, of course: you just zoom, and unless it's an older site that doesn't have any responsivity, you can use it just fine without difficulty. But with apps, apart from playing with hardly convenient accessibility solutions, I haven't come up with anything.
So here you have it: Is there a way to make an application window, along with its contents, larger?
The very ideal way would be to be able to customize it, a bit like you can customize how HTML displays using CSS. But I know that's most probably impossible. Just "zooming" the window, scaling it and its contents proportionally, would do more than fine.
Because honestly, even though WinSCP is the first one that made me react to it, it's not the first time I find an interface tiny.
(In case this is relevant, I use Windows 8 Professional and my resolution is 1920x1080.)
Lookie, it's even a bit smaller than the Windows Explorer text, which isn't exactly large to begin with.
