Issue Details

I just installed LabVIEW on  my Windows 10 Machine and all the main application windows are tiny. Other main application windows seem to be fine. How can I fix this problem?


Right click under the LabVIEW's icon in the desktop then select properties and you will see the following window:

As in the picture under the compatibility tap select Override high DPI scaling behavior.
"Make sure that the scaling performed by:" is in Application. 

Select Apply. Close the window and open LabVIEW again it should be on a regular size now.

This solution can be used with NI-MAX if the same issue is present.

Additional Information

This is something that could happen to software in general because of the DPI configuration of Windows 10.
Another posible workaround to this issue is trying to "play" with the Windows display settings, using the resolution with: 1920x1080 as recommended.
