problem intel HD 4400 monitor 13 inches - defect of the resolution on "windows photo viewer"

2015-08-04, 10:25 AM

Hello to all the community!
I have a Lenovo yoga pro2.
model: 20266
(i74510U - 2ghz - RAM 8gb - Windows 8.1 - total memory available 1792 Mb - resolution monitor recommended  3200x1800).

 

When I open the same image with "windows photo viewer" for example on the 15-inch monitor the result is ok (Windows7)

 

Click here to view image.

 

 whereas on the my Lenovo from the 13-inch monitor the visualization is very small. On my Lenovo the menu buttons of "windows photo viewer" are also very small from see (see rectangles highlighted in red)

 

Click here to view image.

 

 

I tried to change all the settings the user side at my disposal, but the problem persists.
Same thing on the graphics program PAINT.NET. All the menu bars, commands, icons, etc, are displayed very small.
You need to make some changes advanced on the card 4400?
Can you help me?
Thanks

This is unfortunately often an expected behavior for an High-DPI display like the Yoga 2 Pro has (using the same machine btw.). Because the Display on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro has far more pixels on the same area, each pixel is a lot smaller as on other displays. So a control element with 200x200 Pixels looks a lot smaller than on another screen with a lower resolution.

 

The apps have to take this in account, so that they render those elements with more pixels on a High-DPI screen like the one the Yoga 2 Pro uses. If so they are described as dpi-aware. I don't know if the Photo Viewer in Windows 8 is dpi-aware or not and I cannot test this as my machine is already running Windows 10. But as for paint.net I know this one is perfectly dpi-aware and should look just fine. I have it installed myself on this Yoga 2 Pro and it looks just fine to me.

 

This scaling that dpi-aware Apps and windows elements do can be adjusted in the Control Panel. How you do that is described HERE with Option 1 and the steps 1-5 (skip the other steps and especially option 2). Just move the slider shown in step 5 to "larger". You have to log out and in or restart the machine to let the new setting take effect.

Can you make a photo of the screen with paint.net open and post it over here so that I can see how it looks like?

 

Mine looks like this, although im using Windows 10 it should look quite similiar on your machine.

Hm, I am sorry, but this looks exactly as it does here on Windows 10. I'm using the zoom factor of 250% which Windows 10 uses as the default setting on this device. If I remember correctly this equates to the highest possible (non custom) setting under Windows 8.1. Here under Windows 10 it is the second highest setting with 300% being the highest possible.

 

Which custom dpi setting did you use under step 7 from the link provided in my first post? To get things bigger as it is now you have to choose a number above 250%.

 

Remember that you have to at least log in and out for the changes to take place.

I have set 250% at step 7, but not working still.

Does not concern this post, but I have a doubt.
The same type of problem is also present for Word, Excel, Power Point, etc?
I have not yet installed Microsoft office. I was wondering if there may be problems with microsoft office as on PAINT.NET

Office looks like this with a zoom level of 250% on the Yoga 2 Pro.

 

Maybe you should try a zoom level of 300% if this is still too small for you. For me this is just fine the way it looks.
