More and more these very-very-high-resolution (UHD, Ultra-High-Density) notebook displays show up in my class rooms.These displays have 3100×1800 or even more pixels, making it great for watching high-resolution videos or for playing games (maybe?). But such a high-resolution makes many tools including Eclipse very hard to use, because the toolbar icons get so tiny that they are really hard to hit with a mouse cursor on Windows:
Several students reported the issue. These tiny icons make Eclipse and other tools like Altium really hard to use :-(.
Thanks to the hint from yet another student, I can share a solution for that problem :-): Create a short cut for the application (or create one) and then edit the properties of it. In the ‘Compatibility’ tab there you should find a setting ‘Override high DPI scaling behaviour‘:
Turn it on with the ‘System (Enhanced)’ option, and now the application icons are not scaled down and can be used normally.
Happy Enlarging 🙂
