Photo Raw 2022.5 not scaling using Windows 10?

    Not really sure what you're referring to.

    If you're trying to increase font size... not recommended. Increasing font size will mess up some of the items in Photo Raw as the larger size won't fit in the space allotted.

    If you're referring to something else, please be more specific.

    I assume you are referring to the following in Settings:

    I am also on Windows 10, and as you can see my setting is 125%. I agree that this is not reflected in Photo Raw, where the font size, for example, is smaller. This is perfectly normal and not unique to Photo Raw. I have many other apps where the content is bigger or smaller than Windows "standard". This is to fit the design of the app in question, and as Rick suggests, the size is best left alone to avoid problems.

    Note that not all apps honor the setting shown above in the Windows settings! Also, note that you can adjust scaling for an individual app by right-clicking the app, select properties/compatibility and adjust the High DPI settings.  Also, if you are using a graphics card you may have to make the adjustment to the specific program using software that comes with the graphics card rather than using the Windows properties. 

    Of course, not messing with this is also probably good input, but that depends on how comfortable you are doing some of this stuff.

    I do not recommend trying to scale the text in Photo RAW. Doing that causes it to overflow the text box it is being displayed in and the overflow gets cut off.
