How To Enable High DPI Support

High DPI (Dots Per Inch) support is crucial for ensuring that Windows Forms applications look crisp and clear on high-resolution displays. As displays with higher DPI values have become more common, especially on laptops and monitors, it's important that desktop applications scale appropriately and don't appear blurry or mis-sized.

AD Reports offers integrated support for High DPI displays.

To access DPI Awareness settings, click on the Application Settings button in the ribbon toolbar and go to the General page.

To activate this feature, change the DPI Awareness radio button to one of the availbale options: System, Per Monitor or Per Monitor V2.

Per Monitor V2 is generally the best choice for modern applications, particularly in environments with mixed-DPI setups (e.g., different monitors with varying resolutions and scaling settings). It ensures that application looks sharp and are correctly scaled on each monitor, enhancing user experience across multiple displays.
