Yoga 900 dialogue boxes and programs opening very small

So I just got this laptop a few weeks ago, and I have noticed that some of the programs I have tried using on here open in a very small window that is not resizeable. It is becoming more and more annoying each time I come across this issue. I really love this laptop, but this must be fixed. I have played around with the scaling with no luck. Any ideas would be great!

 

Here is an example of a program running in Java:

This also happens quite a bit when I am trying to install a program. The dialogue box is usually too small for me to even hit 'Next' or 'Install', etc.

Re: Yoga 900 dialogue boxes and programs opening very small

Hello and welcome,

 

If you enter "yoga 900 tiny fonts" in the forum's search box you'll find that you're not alone.  Some of the threads that claim a solution suggest lowering your display's resolution.  Sub-optimal "resolution" to the problem IMHO.  LCD panels should be run at their native resolution.

 

This is apparently a per-application problem.  Unless they are resolution-aware (and can handle the Yoga's high res screen) and respect Window's scaling options what you'll get is that tiny window.

 

I don't think you're going to see a global fix.  This will fall to the individual app developers.  At least that's how I read what I searched up.

 

Regards,

Z.

You can change screen resolution to 1920 by 1080 and scaling to 100%. The scaling issues will go away, but so will the beautiful hi res display of the Yoga 900. This is because of the app developers who didn't consider QHD displays during their code

Thank you for the quick responses. That is quite disappointing as most of these programs are older and I am sure will not be developed for this resolution. I guess my wife will just need to stick to my old laptop to enter her grades in. Thanks again!

After playing around with the resolution, I am still get the exact same results, even after a reboot.

There is no fix for it yet unfortunately. Best bet is to lower the resolution, if that doesn't help, I don't think there is much to do. The computer is farily new, so older programs may not work as efficiently
