Windows 10 app DPI

I received at least one comment from the user that said that WinForms app had weird font sizes. This is likely caused by the DPI issues when text size is set to large in the OS settings and screen resolution is very high. User complained that he couldn’t get to the executable to tweak the compatibility settings. It is super easy to get to the location of the exe file using Sysinternals Process Explorer. Once you have the path to the exe file you should be able to mess with the compat settings in the exe properties. Incidentally attaching external monitor with 100% resolution and text size will be the easiest way to deal with this. Shouldn’t be an issue attaching external monitor since pretty much everyone works from home these days.
