    Hi

    I recently upgraded my old Macbook Pro to the new one with the retina display. It has a very high resolution. So high, in toolkit, I can't read the super small font.

    I've tried adjusting the windows display setting to scale to 250%, but toolkit font sizes don't change. I've tried 500% scaling and the other apps running on windows are now massive.

    Is there a registry setting I can look into. There's nothing in the software to allow font sizes to be adjusted that I know of.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    [SOLVED] Many Thanks Luke Augustakis for the solution.

    This issues happens on any monitor with a high resolution. ie. above 1920x1080

    Solution:
    Right click on the taskbar or desktop toolkit application icon
    Right click again on the toolkit icon that appears in the pop-up menu
    Select Properties
    Select Compatibility
    Select the checkbox labelled "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" and in the drop down menu below
    Scaling performed by: Select "System"
    Hit apply then OK.

    This will now give normal size text on high res monitors (like 99% of all other windows 10 compatible applications.....dig dig clipsal)
