Unusual Font Size / Boxes Cut Off

If you experience issues such as:

These issues can be caused by a DPI Setting above 100% on the computer’s Display Settings.  Many of today’s higher resolution monitors will automatically set the Font Size to 150% or 200% to make icons and on-screen text easier to read.  This higher setting can cause problems with the menu systems in BrainTrain applications.  But, you  can override the Font Size/DPI setting on a Program-by-Program basis.

  1. Right-click on the program’s desktop shortcut and select Properties on the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab.  Note: If you don’t see this tab, you may need to open File Explorer, and right-click on the program’s actual EXE file buried somewhere on your drive — Program Files or Program Files (x86). Sometimes desktop shortcuts don’t allow for compatibility changes.
  3. Under Settings, click Change High DPI Settings.
  4. A second pop-up window appears on the screen. Check the box next to “Override High DPI Scaling Behavior.”
  5. Press OK, then Apply on the previous Properties screen.
  6. If you had the program open, you will need to close the application and restart it for any changes to take effect. In some situations, you may need to Log out of Windows and back into your Windows user account as well.
