Brief History: I HAD a Dell Latitude with native 1920x1200 resolution. I have two nice Dell 24" LCDs, also with a native 1920x1200 resolution. I used my laptop docked and everything was wonderful. Laptop broke and I replaced it with a new latitude with 2560x1440 resolution.
I just tried my new laptop and Windows 7 adjusted the resolution down to the external monitor max of 1920x1200 - good, but it set DPI to 150% which looks terrible. I took it down to 100% and now I'm seeing exactly what I want in some apps (e.g. Visual Studio) and very poor results in others (e.g FireFox)
I don't understand why some apps handle it fine and others don't. Additional examples:
Appear as Expected:
- Visual Studio
- Start Menu
- Computer Management
Appear too small:
- Window Title of most windows
- Windows Context Menu (Right click on desktop)
Is there anything I can do to fix the issue where the tin fonts (circled in red in my screenshot) scale correctly like my other fonts?
