Looking at the image attached the problem is self-explanatory. The tabs and icons within the software (photoshop in this particular case) are extremely small so that they are barely visible and difficult to use. It happens to some of the software just installed in a newly bought pc(very high resolution screen).

How can I resize them specifically (I know the trick for general resizing).

Would the software "sizer" help?

  • The question is not self-explanatory. We now have to make guesses as to what you mean. Does your new computer have a very high-resolution screen? Is the scaling not working properly? Have you adjusted scaling and followed the instructions (sign out, and then sign back in after changing the scaling)? Which program(s) is this a problem in? – music2myear Aug 6 '18 at 21:32
  • hi @cybernetic.nomad, thanks for the comments. I edited the text to explain the problem better. – have fun Aug 7 '18 at 5:35
  • hi @music2myear I do not know how to change the scaling, can you be more specific? – have fun Aug 7 '18 at 5:38
  • It looks like specific programs don't size the application icons to a usable size on the hi-resolution screen? So you need a way to adjust the size of the UI components at the application level? I suspect that will be different for every application, if the application even has the capability. It would be better for the OS to better communicate a global setting (which is where the applications get the information from). – fixer1234 Aug 7 '18 at 5:54

PROBLEM SOLVED I found a solution to set the DPI as best for the application and not the screen resolution for each app.

Right click on the software icon/link > properties > tab "compatibility"> change high DPI setting > mark the checkbox "override high DPI scaling behavior"> select system in the window below (the default is "application")
