HiDPI support

Post by Warlock » Mon Apr 11, 2016 11:35 am

it appears that the app is not yet ready for HiDPI monitors . . .

As yo can see on the screenshot the listbox is to small. and the checkbox + text is also small ( the one on the bottom left )

SBIE supports 1920x1080 monitors around 160 DPI

That is my point... 1920x1080 is getting old.
Time to get with the flow ;-)

Millions of SBIE customers and businesses still use this standard.

... so do you mean that HiDPI integration is pointless.

Programs with HiDPI integration work perfectly on those standard systems... so why not updating the SBIE interface.

Windows 10 (Version 1703 | Build 15063+) now handles DPI scaling with ease.

Set DPI scaling to "System (Enhanced)" in the SbieCtrl.exe Properties > Compatibility tab.
The exe is found in the install folder (usually "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie" for x64 systems).

This makes it work with HiDPI and even mixed DPI monitor setups.
It looks fine with a 4k monitor at 200% scaling next to a 1080p monitor at 100% scaling.

The result should look like this on any screen (resized for the web):
