SayIt is Tiny

  • Dark
    Light

Issue:

SayIt launched from Java Web Start (sayit.jnlp) or from an executable (sayit.exe) opens as a tiny, very small window on the screen and I can hardly read it.

It may be necessary to adjust your settings for "High DPI" (dots per inch) scaling.

What to do:

What you need to do is based on whether you launched SayIt from Java Web Start (sayit.jnlp) or from an executable file (sayit.exe).

SayIt from Java Web Start (sayit.jnlp)

  1. Navigate to the directory with your Java executables.
    (This is something like C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_111\bin or C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_111\bin)

 

  1. Right-click on the Javaws.exe file and select Properties from the menu.

Javaws_Properties

 

 

  1. On the Compatibility tab click the Change high DPI settings button.

  2. Put a checkmark next to Override high DPI scaling behavior.
    windows10_Override-High-DPI
     
  3. Click the Apply button.
    windows10_Override-High-DPI-Apply
     
  4. Relaunch SayIt and it should no longer be tiny!

SayIt From Executable File (sayit.exe)
