Some programs appear too small on screen

Post by Little Ernest+1 » Thu Jan 12, 2017 8:45 am

I am a new user of LinuxMint.
My computer has:
Linux Mint 18 sarah mate 64-bit
CPU: Quad core i5-6600
Graphic card: Intel Sky Lake Integrated
Resolution: 2560 x 1080
Monitor: LG 25UM58-P

My problem is:
Everything is too small in screen with some programs
(like terminal tty, VLC and others)
and I cannot change it.
Some web appear far too small and other do not.

Thank you very much indeed!

Did you try switching to HiDPI?
Menu > Preferences > General

Sorry LeBoy, I don't know HiDPI. I'm reading now about it.
I didn't find it in Menu Preferences.
Thank you.

Menu > Preferences > General > Desktop Scaling > User interface scaling: Double (Hi-DPI)

There's a good screenshot of the dialog box in this link:
