  3. Under Settings section, click Change high DPI settings. This will bring up the properties window.

  4. On the new pop-up window, click and check the box next to Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by: setting.

  5. Lastly, make sure “System” option is selected in the drop-down menu as shown in the image below.
