Image scaling issues may occur in some 3rd party applications due to exceptionaly high resolution screeen.
In some applications, control buttons, menu items, or overall appearance may be very small.
Most applications are designed for displays with resolutions lower than the display on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. Typical applications expect a maximum resolution of 1920x1080, or full High Definition, compared to the Yoga 2 Pro’s default and recommended resolution of 3200x1800, or QHD+.
Windows 8.1 offers superior scaling support over Windows 8, specifically to address this gap. However, it is not perfect. While many applications do scale effectively, others do not. In some instances, the mode in which the application is run makes a difference.
As an example,please compare the following screen shots of Google’s Chrome browser, version 30.0.1599.101m.
First, here’s Chrome running in Desktop mode, viewing the lenovo.com homepage:
This one looks fairly normal and is as expected.
Now, compare to Chrome in Windows8 mode, viewing the same page:
The navigation buttons are very small, and the page’s content does not use the full screen.
This is due to a scaling shortcoming when running Chrome in Windows 8 mode. It is possible to hold down the Ctrl key and press + to zoom in the page content, but this will have no effect on the navigation buttons or menu items.
While many third party apps do not yet scale properly, the issue is not limited strictly to third parties. Windows Media Player exhibits the same scaling issue. For the moment, this is a side effect of using an ultra high resolution panel. As more developers work with high resolution panels, more applications will begin scaling effectively.
As a workaround, you could try the following:
1. Go to Chrome -> Settings
2. Select "Show Advanced settings"
3. Scroll down to "Web content"
4. Page zoom change to "250%" or whatever zoom you are comfortable with.
