Brink thanks for your reply. I tried adjusting the advanced display settings and that gets me a little closer to what i want, but still is more complex and not as nice as the font sizing that windows xp implemented. I made everything larger that was in the dropdown menu that had an option for sizing, but now some things are big, and others that didnt have options to adjust are small. Also some text doesnt fit in in its area, such as menus where the text is cut off because the text is bigger than the space the program alloted for it. I still think that Windows needs the ability to selectively turn off DPI scaling on a per program basis, as well as the option to have DPI scaling only apply to operating system icons, menus, and dialogs and not extend into applications.
