Slideshow: Adjust DPI scaling in Windows 7

When you select a higher DPI scale, you'll see a warning message appear at the bottom of the screen

You can select the Medium - 125% button to move up to 120 DPI or you can select the Larger - 150% button to boost the DPI to 144 DPI. The one that you select will depend on your video card and wide screen monitor. When you select a higher DPI scale, you'll see a warning message appear at the bottom of the screen, as shown. Don't worry though, if you don't like it, you can easily change it back. When you click Apply, you'll be prompted to log off and will have to log back on before the new DPI setting will take effect.
