I’ve been having trouble with my laptop lately. It has a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 – that’s equivalent to a 60-inch high definition TV! In other words, it has a HiDPI screen – and they just don’t work very well with Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.
Text and graphics are way too small at normal viewing distances, and you almost need to use a magnifying glass to read anything on the display. There is a solution, however, in the form of DPI scaling – the resolution stays the same, but everything is scaled up to give the impression that the screen is operating at a lower res.
Unfortunately though, it doesn’t work too well. There is one major problem with DPI scaling: many major apps, like Photoshop and Chrome, look terribly blurry on HiDPI screens. This is because their developers haven’t included the necessary high resolution assets.
I’ll show you how to do it anyway though, despite all the problems.
