    With my HP ZBook Studio screen resolution set to 3840 x 2160 and 250% zoom (recommended settings) some of the text is unreadable in 2020. The splash screen logo is very small as well. Other items, such as the drawing area, the drag and drop box is fine. However, while the text “Information” shows up properly in that box, the actual text below is very small. Is there a way to fix this, or, do I just need to keep my setting at 1920 x 1080? I love the crisp text of the higher resolution settings, but if 2020 is not usable with those settings, I will stick to the 1920 x 1080. Thank you.

    Hey Ryan,

    The internal scaling in 2020 is set up for 1920×1080 so that’s why you get the small windows and text.

    One way of dealing with it is to have your resolution set to 1920×1080 🙂

    Another thing you can try is to right click on the desktop shortcut for 2020 Design.  Select Properties.  Go to the compatibility tab.  Down at the bottom select Change settings for all users.  Click on change high DPI settings.  Put a check in the Override high DPI scaling check box and select System from the drop down. apply, okay, okay and then open 2020 again.  The login screen should be larger and not cut off and the internal text should display correctly.

    Hope that helps.
