Lower resolution after installing Windows 10

Running Cubase Pro 8.0.30, I installed Windows 10 Home edition last night. All is fine EXCEPT that all project windows display very large, as if I had set the screen resolution to show fewer pixels. I am on a 4K monitor, set to its max display, i.e., 3,480 x 2,160. Nothing else was changed on the PC or within Cubase. I see no way to change the project windows resolution so that it shows more of each window, as it did with the prior OS, i.e., Windows 7 x64.

System: Custom-built Core 2 Quad CPU, Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Windows 10 Home edition on 64-bit system.

Cubase doesnt support high DPI
So you’ll have to change this in windows, try either

right click desktop
select ‘display settings’
change the slider (I have 4k monitor and use 150%) perhaps change it to 125%

2/ (make sure cubase aint running)
right click -> the cubase shortcut (to start program) select ‘open file location’
right click -> cubase 8 program, select ‘properties’
click compatibility tab
make sure ‘disable display scaling on high DPI settings’
press OK
start cubase (everything will be much smaller)

Fantastic! I like the second option, because it allows me to set the overall Windows display at 150% (for easier web browsing) but keep just Cubase smaller, allowing it more screen real estate. Thanks for these great tips!
