Issue Details

I have dual monitors with my PC.  When I am running with both monitors TestStand looks normal (all menus, icons are normal). 
But when I only run the Software on my laptop, the toolbars, icons, and menus are not scaled properly. 

I have tried the article National Instruments Software Displaying at Small Resolution, and I have the same result.


Please try the following steps:
  1. Open TestStand.
  2. Right Click on the TestStand Icon and select Properties.
  1. Navigate to the Compatibility tab.
  2. Select: Override high DPI scaling behavior Scaling performed by System
  1. Click on Apply then OK.
  2. Close TestStand.
  3. Open TestStand
