Scaling in Application - not displaying correctly

I have upgraded my laptop to W10 and I have some scheduling software I need to use.
On my old w7 laptop it looked fine but on W10 it looks like the font is too big and text is overlapping slightly in the menus?
Any ideas much appreciated

Re: display

It's not clear what you did: upgrade your laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10, or use a new laptop in stead of your old laptop. Those are different things, and you tell the first in your first sentence and the last in your second sentence.

Things that could cause this:
- change in screen resolution
- change in screen size
- missing font
- display settings
- settings in the program

Contact the customer service of the maker of that scheduling software if you can't find a cause or remedy yourself.

Word for example can look different until I install my printer driver and set that printer to my default.
