Windows 7: Large font in some applications

Large font in some applications

What could be causing font being incorrectly bigger in some applications. See attached examples (example1.jpg and example3-correct.jpg are from this application 3RVX). It's been like that for years, so I don't remember what could have caused it. There doesn't seem to be any pattern between applications showing font correctly or incorrectly. In some applications, some fonts have correct size, others not (example2.jpg - HD Tune Pro).

It's something profile specific because creating a new profile won't have this problem. But I don't want to create a new profile, because it would take quite some time to "restore" all the settings and it isn't too big problem, jast would be nice to get it fixed.

To make things smaller, hit [CTRL]-[+] (hold control and hit plus). To make things smaller, hit [CTRL]-[-].

I'm not sure why some things are bigger and some smaller, but the above should fix it.

Unfortunatelly, that's not the case (like it is in browsers).

No no no :)

The problem isn't about browser font size. Look at the last two screenshots. The last on has correct font size (using additional Windows profile/username), but the one before it is the same application, but for some reason has a big font (using my everyday Windows profile/username).

I knew that you weren't referring to the browser display size.

Have you tried my suggestion? It works in some non-browser situations, but not in all.

Sorry, my previous response was for another reply which since has been deleted.

Yes, I tried, no luck. But as you can see from the HD Tune Pro screenshot, not all texts are enlarged.
