It's a common complaint with UHD 4K
Back to your maker and Microsoft to complain again.
If you get a 4K screen it better be HUGE. Say about 50 inches.
The current workaround is to send a 1080p screen.
Microsoft needs to address this. That is, if the screen size is say 32 inches, 4K display will be nearly unusable.
Yeah it's a major issue that is going ignored it seems, there is some workaround (that actually didnt work for me but does for others) but it leaves the icons looking pixelated or the cursor size or other things are off scale. I'm thinking I will have to live with it unless Microsoft comes up with a patch or something.
Here it's a debate if a patch is needed.
That is, UHD 4K on 32 inch screens doesn't make a lot of sense in the land of Microsoft. So they don't seem to push the font size/scaling up high enough. Like most they expect a commensurate size display so the DPI doesn't get out of hand.
did you try changing font size?
did you try changing windows default font size?
Yes it doesn't change the scaling within programs though.
actually it does
it will change within programs. I do it when attaching a win10 computer to my tv. you have to do the advance settings not the slider.
Nod. Slider may not be applicable to small 4K monitors.
You have to use the other controls.
Then it's the old complaint.
Get back to Dell and exchange it for a 1080p screen.
They only have 4k screens the laptop I have. Actually I can not use the vast majority of things I need to, I'm really annoyed and yet no solution from Microsoft, they don't care.
Microsoft and others
Don't stop you from buying designs that have this issue so you can see why they don't care. It's our choice here to go with a screen that the DPI was over the top.
Apple for their credit understood this area much better and is a better nanny company and keeps users mostly out of trouble.
