    How to handle Windows Scaling

    Hi, In windows display settings it is possible to scale your desktop and many types of laptop have a recommended setting which is often something like 125 to 150%. This is fine however how exactly do I handel this in my fusion application?

    Trying to position the window at the centre of the screen for example does not compensate for the scaling and so puts the window way of centre. Is there a way to get this 'display scaled value' anyhow? Then I could compensate it with a bit of maths.

    Cheers

    I have been struggling with this for a while now. On my 5K monitor I have scaling of 225% selected but fusion apps seem to ignore this and come out way too small. It's been a while since I've addressed this issue but when tweaking compatibility settings and trying to embed my own manifest I've had sub-par results. God help you if you're using any of the native Windows controls like checkboxes, radio buttons, etc as the scaling on these is also hit-and-miss regardless of the status of the rest of the window.

    This thread might help you guys, it's about how to force windows to use 100% scaling for your apps, although the desktop setting is different. You'll need some registry entries for this.
