[dba-Tech] Big Screens

Hi Rocky

I use a 2560 x 1440 screen with zero issues, but I don't use any resizer tool.

In Windows 10, the user can easily scale fonts and apps including Office to, say, 150%. I use that on a Lenovo tablet having a small screen with extreme resolution.

So, I guess, check for the OS version and, if 10, simply disable the resizing.

Dear List(s):

The fellow who acquired my MRP product has a couple of clients who are
running the product on big screens - 3440 X 1440 and 2560 x 1080 (3D).  It's
32-bit Access using the ADH screen resizing code which has been working
pretty well on all monitors of lower resolution.  ON these, however, the
resizing is hosed.

Does anyone know of any problems running Access on these big monitors?

Any workarounds?  Any opinions on Peter's Shrinker/Stretcher or the FMS
screen resizing product?
