    I'm guessing you have one of those retina displays? (e.g. MacBook under Boot Camp?) Windows doesn't always handle them very well; in particular, it tends to do weird things when you Remote Desktop into the machine.

    If that's the case then the simplest solution might be to right-click on the Desktop and select Display Settings, and then change Scale and Layout to 150% (or to taste).

    With a bit more work, you can adapt MaxIm DL's screen somewhat. You've already found the Large Icons feature. It's also possible to modify the Status window display, as it's formatted in HTML. Please see the instructions at the bottom of this manual section: http://www.diffractionlimited.com/help/maximdl/Status_Tab.htm

    thanks for your reply. My laptop is a Microsoft Spectre windows 10 with 4k Graphics. I have
    had a similar problem with other programs. I did scale up the display settings and that along
    with checking the large icon box has helped. I will check into your manual recommendation.
    BTW so far impressed with Maxim DL. One program replacing 4.
