Hi,

google search windows 10 dpi scaling fix.
there should be a web address that shows this reference and a picture of it.

windows10_dpi_blurry_fix.xpexplorer.com/

this will allow the larger fonts scaling in windows 10 Smile

The problem with scaling the entire display is that it then affects everything displayed - and severely affects multitasking, ie. switching to check our mail or forum posts.

The issue at hand here was that the charts and graphs were displayed okay, it was the text labels and descriptions that were too small. Most applications (Sleepyhead included) provide means for adjusting text size within the programs windows to resolve the issues of varying display resolutions and varying visual acuity of users.

Frank,
No alt tabbing for me. 3 x 4k screens.
Ive used the dpi scale app from the url and it works for the apps that dont use dpi_scale natively.

RE: SleepyHead on HD 4K Monitor
I, too, had these issues with SleepyHead and several other programs when I installed Windows 10. I found this solution while searching a similar problem I was having with Photoshop. Some of the plug-ins were unreadable because the font was way too small. Other problems, in some other programs, were things like labels did not line up with buttons, font too small in comparison with other native Windows programs, buttons overlapped, etc.

I tried every trick I could find yet nothing worked until I found the following solution. It worked for SleepyHead and every other program with these issues so far. You must be comfortable with changing a registry entry and creating a file that you will add to each folder containing the main ".exe." file of any offending program.

Rather than explain the whole process, here is the link. It fixed my SleepyHead viewing issues. Make sure to follow the directions exactly. It might look a bit intimidating to some but it really is quite easy. Smile
