Does anyone how to increase the size of the applet windows that windows 10 opens for, in this case "OPTIONS" under TOOLS in Media Player. In the screen shots attached the window simply gobbles up the dialogues and options under almost all register tabs.


One can also observe the same behavior under such windows of some other dialogue boxes of some other software applications i.e. (Preferences) Adobe's Dreamweaver, Photoshop etc. It is not the case with all applet windows, but only some. I am using a large  Samsung 26" screen so the screen size etc. can't be the problem..


I am sure there is some setting somewhere that allows one to change the size. It is quite frustrating and security risk otherwise, not being able to access the settings of an application.


Thanks for any input.




Microsoft seems to be on an advertising BIng/e in Edge which does not allow any app to curb the ad-curse!


PS I just coined "Winten" as a nickname for Windows 10 or Windows X. Let's see if it catches..

Most likely you have windows set to 125% dpi and many programs will not render properly with windows set like that.
