Is it possible to set the DPI of individual applications in Windows?
I want to increase the DPI of one or more applications but not the entire system.
Can this be done?
in a word, no.
it's a global setting
Yes! it can be done.You can change the DPI setting of an individual application in windows but only if it supports. You can do this by following way-
If you have a few specific applications that support high DPI settings but don’t indicate it, you can configure that detail manually. To do so, right-click the shortcut that starts the application (in the Start menu) and choose Properties. On the Compatibility tab, enable the option named Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings. If you have a lot of applications to configure, this gets tiring fast.
Note: This will work just fine with Windows Vista and Windows 7 don't know about XP.
