lightroom interface very small on the screen
« on: March 19, 2017, 04:36:34 PM »

Recently I bought a new Lenovo computer laptop and installed my lightroom on the new computer and the interface is super small on the screen where it renders light room useless.  Is there a fix for this?  I am using lightroom 4 which I know is not the most up todate version

Have you checked your screen resolution? Do any of your other applications exhibit the same window size as LR?

no other program or application does this, I increased the screen resolution to 300%, which help a little bit but not much

If no other program window displays that way it's unique to your iteration/copy of Lightroom. Have you reset your preferences? I know Adobe has a key combination to use at program start to do this with Photoshop, should be something similar with LR.

LR 4 isn't high res screen aware like the recent versions which is why the interface is small for you.

FWIW, I don't really regard LR 6/2015 as hi-res aware, either.

Maybe it's better for 4K+ screens, but on this 17" laptop that's been upgraded from a mid-HD (768?) panel to a Full-HD-1080 AdobeRGB panel, it isn't.  Both Photoshop AND LR2015 are both squint-worthy apps - making me almost needing my computer-glasses.  For LR, setting the interface font to medium is a bit too small, and setting to the next step up - Large 150 - it is WAY too ridiculously big.  I've gotten almost all other apps to be a 'viewable' size, but not LR & PS..  With PS being much worse.
