Kindly read the whole issue before suggesting a fix.
LRC Version: 11.1
Windows 11 21H2 22000.438
I got a new XPS 15 (9510) a month or so back. It has a 3.5K OLED screen. The first few days I downloaded Adobe CC and Photoshop, LR, LR Classic. (Nvidia 3050Ti, i7 11800H)
I mainly use LR Classic. It was working ok on my laptop, despite some weird scaling issues that happen when I switch monitors. These issues would usually resolve themselves when I close and reopen LRC on the monitor I want to use. I never had an issue when working on my laptop without an external monitor. LRC would display properly.
Please note that I had never changed the high DPI settings before. LRC was using application-level scaling and following the scaling factor I have set in windows (250%) without any issues.
2 days ago, LRC now only opens with very small icons and menus on my laptop screen (external monitor is disconnected). I tried changing and resetting the windows scaling % to no avail. I have tried to uninstall/install LRC; downgrade LRC; restore the system to a few days back, but nothing has worked so far.
I have also tried the System/System(enhanced) scaling options, but frankly they suck. They are blurry and glitchy and generally subpar compared to the in-app scaling that was working perfectly.
LRC is unusable now on my laptop monitor. I can only use it on my FHD external monitor, where it scales ok. Mind you Photoshop and LR are scaling properly and looking ok.
