See the text bigger only inside one program in w10 home
« on: January 20, 2020, 07:26 AM »
The new laptop has 1920x1080 resolution.
That's good for almost any case.
But for one program the letters are too small for me . so I would like to configure the size from windows only for this program, not in generally.

How can I do that with windows 10 home edition 64 bits ?

Best Regards

Resize a Font individual to a specific size can only be done, aslong i know, by application itself.
Windows just brings either reset all for one dpi/size or use screen magnify.
For some quick results, there might be a chance to AHK it, but AHK aint my territory so i can only help to program a resizer but for that i would need a minimalistic portable version of your target program.
sorry bad english and Delphi are my hobby ;)
politeness is not one of my strengths in writing, just because it sounds rough doesn't mean that I mean it rough.

If I can scale inside the application would be enough.
That is apply a scale factor only to the target application.

Is it possible ?

In windows we can scale but for all the applications. I only need one.


edited : 125 % is a good factor for me.

Have you tried playing with the Compatibility/High DPI settings per application? It's in the <Right-Click-icon>/Properties pages of the application.

And some applications support Ctrl-scroll-wheel-scrolling for scaling only their window/font.

After thinking a bit on your problem i might have a good working solution.
Install VMware/Hyper-V/VirtualBox or similar.
Install targets program OS and the target itself.
Adjust the windows setting (125% you said).
From now on you have just this app upscaled and the rest is still like it was.

Requirements:
50-100GB free space on a drive
6-8GB RAM, 2-4GB for virtual machine
time to install and set everything up.

Does that method solve your problem?

Simply set up another virtual machine, just for your "i want that app upscaled"-thingy  :Thmbsup:

Scaling ability is a programmers feature not a standard, even if nowadays many apps can do.

Understood.
At the present moment I am a happy man .
I have almost finish configuring the new laptop.
 :P :-*

I have assumed the best advice I can receive and will take into consideration in the near future.
I have almost 200 virtual machines under virtualbox....

I bought the new laptop of second hand with 5 hours of use.
An Authentic luxury bought to a professional programmer .

The novelty is that kind of ssd nvme card faster.
I am thinking in the near future modify the desktop with a system nvme card of 1 TB. I am using a SATA SSD 500 GB and almost no space at the present moment !

I have learned a lot from my seller.
The laptop is Hewlett Packard originally with Freedos. Now with windows 10 home. And with a set of features wonderfully selected by my seller.
That sort of laptops are not found locally in Tenerife.

 :Thmbsup:

By the way KodeZwerg .
I am using a program developed in Delphi I think : pspad.

Is a program I get a lot fond in the past, present and future; but when I maximize the icon from the task bar open by miliseconds a black window .

Can I solve this ?

Note : happen under windows 10 home.
