Screen size and scale.
« on: February 22, 2017, 10:04:48 AM »
Okay, so I have a decent sized monitor (24") with resolution set to 1920 x 1080, which looks really good for most things.  One thing that doesn't look so good is the size of Menu items and icons in most programs.  When I ran Windows 7 (10, now), everything seemed appropriately sized.  In order to get my menus and icons looking about the same size as when on Windows 7, I have to scale the size to 125%.  On my Windows tablet, this looks great, but smaller screen.  On my 24" monitor, menu items look a bit blurry.  I also tried downscaling the resolution of the monitor, in which everything look kind of blurry. 

I guess the question is: What settings / sizes do other people use, or does everyone just prefer teeny, tiny icons and menu items?

I have small icons and menu's to keep as much space open for working. By now I also know what icons are where, so I don't even have to be able to see them really  ;)
