[WorksForMe] Window fonts in win10 suddenly huge / scaled wrong

Postby jayscott » 30. Jul 2019, 14:52

Recently VirtualBox's main window font size has scaled to an unusable size in windows 10.

Is there something I can do to fix this? I tried right clicking the virtualbox.exe and disabling the dpi scaling, but this had no effect.

Thanks

It looks like uninstalling/reinstalling virtualbox fixed my problem.

I can't see how re-installing VirtualBox could fix this, but hey... if it works for you, who am I to judge. ;)

This happened to me as well. A reinstall likewise fixed things. Maybe some change in Windows?
