Fixing Scaling on High-density Displays

Java 8 does not natively support high-density displays on Windows, resulting in the UI being very small by default. However, you can fix this as follows:

  1. Determine the path to java (or java.exe). If you run your program in IntelliJ, the first line in the output is the path to the java that it is using.

  2. Navigate to the folder containing java in File Explorer, right click on the java file, and select Properties.

  3. Go to the Compatibility tab.

  4. Check Override high DPI scaling behavior.

  5. Under Scaling performed by:, choose System.
