Default Window content too small

When I open up Pro Tools First, everything is perfectly okay.

(As you can see, the toolbar is perfectly normal)

But then, as soon as I open up a project (either opening one or creating one), it gets all weird and small, like the resolution is cranked too high. The toolbar is also 'cut-in-half' and shorted a whole bunch, even after I go fullscreen.

I have a 3840x2160 monitor and it's scaled up to 225%, since I like the look that way.

It helps a tiny bit, if I crank the scale up to 350% (the biggest I can), but it's still pretty small, and the toolbar is still all messed up. It doesn't help if I change my resolution to 1920x1080 either.

I use Windows 10 and Pro Tools First 12.8

PT First is only supported on up to 1080x1920 resolution. Are you on a 4k resolution? Let us know.

I just downloaded Pro Tools 12.8.3 and am having the same problem. Did you find a resolution?

The most frustrating part is it worked fine the first few times I opened Pro Tools but now I'm getting the tiny windows and no visible menu bar. Help!

Default Re: Window content too small

Ditto...just installed 12.8.3 on a new Dell XPS 15, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 10.0.16299 Build 16299 with 15.6" 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) InfinityEdge touch display. Application scree size was somewhat bearable for a day or two then, and not sure why, it started getting incredibly small. Have tried changing resolution size (not the approach I'd like to take), and display setting scale properties (not very successful with this), and changing application properties to run in Windows 8 compatibility mode, etc. (no significant change).

I have exactly the same problem with the tiny ProTools 12 display after opening any virtual instrument in a DellXPS 15 with 3840x2160 screen resolution. When I open the software without those inserts the display is completely normal.

Please HELP!!

My solution was to select the protools shortcut properties, then compatiability, then under settings check "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by", and specify system in the dropdown list.
