UI resolution
I posted this elsewhere, but thought this might benefit from this thread.

I have a 15.6 Win 7 laptop, with 1080p resolution, but the problem is that I'm old. My eyes don't can't resolve tiny UI elements anymore. I like to turn up the UI resolution to 175 dpi. When I do this, parts of Konfig are not able to be accessed at all. I have to return the Windows UI settings to 150%, rendering my PC unreadable. Given that hi-fi buyers demographic generally fall somewhere between old koot and kodger I'm certain I'm not the only one who experiences this. When the Linn engineers are thinking about a major UI overhaul, this should be addressed.

MDSM/2, 6100/D, both draining into large Ikea Aptitligs, bi-aktiv Ninkas(steel bases+Soundcare Superspikes), K600 and silvers.
Asus AC88U router, Synology 215j(Minimserver), ASUS VivoMini HTPC.
Oppo 105D, Panasonic TC-P50ST60 plasma, VIZIO S4251w-B4 soundbar

Good luck with that. I raised a very similar issue many moons ago without success.

RE: UI resolution
Hopefully the engineers have lived those moons too, and are nearing coot status and are beginning to understand this.....

Sorry if you don't live in the UK.

RE: UI resolution
Dunno if this'll make a difference - not quite the same problem I don't think, but sort of connected...

RE: UI resolution
From the docs link:
On Windows10 all of the screen text is huge and cannot access all controls

Suspect that you have a hi-resolution display. The solution is:

Right click application icon and choose the compatibility tab,
check the box that says Override high DPI scaling behavior
from the drop down menu select scaling performed by system
Hit OK to exit properties.
Log out or reboot your PC

This will fix the screen size issue.
......

I tried it on Windows 7, the scaling dpi compatibility setting crashes Konfig,
I use version 4.34.73

If I do it on compatibility property tab it has no effect. Konfig version 4.34.73
