Resizing Videostudio?

Postby spudgun » Sat Apr 18, 2020 1:25 am

Hello esteemed friends.

I have taken the plunge and decided to upgrade to the latest version, 2020 Ultimate.

Alas...I can hardly READ it! By that, I mean, the icons and timeline are so small. Is there any way to ENLARGE the icons and timeline? I have spent hours trying to make the thing look larger but I'm on the verge of giving it up as even with my glasses I am struggling to see controls, icons, symbols etc...When I say enlarge the timeline, I don't mean to expand it so that I can see everything in it….I mean make the thing visibly LARGER or wider so that I can see it. I can't even read the topics in the file, edit tools etc... tabs!

Stay safe good people.

First off, I've moved your post to the VideoStudio forum and not the VS Tutorials area where few people would have seen the post.

Second, do you have a 4K computer and/or a 4K monitor.

I ask since you don't give any information about your setup in your Profile. I have both a 4K computer and monitor, and with that I would have to agree that VS 2020 is tiny. But I have set the view in Win 10 Settings to 150%. But VS is still tiny. So what I then do is right click the VS icon on the main screen of my computer. and choose Properties, then the Compatibility tab. On that tab I then click on the Change High DPI button. And on the new screen which appears, down towards the bottom I tick the box beside Override High DPI Scaling behaviour. And under that, choose System.

Hopefully, if you have a 4K monitor, that should significantly increase the size of the VS GUI and make it look like previous versions of VS.

I think I have previously opined as to your amazing wisdom, kindness and knowledge. I shall do so again today. Thank you for spearheading what, for me, is frequently a confusing software advice guide.

Stay safe and healthy my good friend.
Kudos and best wishes to you.
