Application icons are too small on my Dell XPS 4k screen

Description

The icons on the top and side are very very tiny. In Windows 10 the Custom Scaling does not work to affect the size of the Greenshot icons. Also, other apps I use don't display this issue.

I have two attachments, one a shot at 3840x2160, another at 1920x1080. The 1920x1080 resolution is easier to read the icons. But I usually use 3840x2160 on this device.

Is there a way to tie the icon size to the Custom Scaling option in Windows 10, or to have a setting in Greenshot to use larger icons?

Thanks!

we have the same with new HP EliteBook Notebooks with a screen resolution of 3840x2160 BUT a scaling of 300%. Without that scaling all programs are unusable small but with scaling everything is at normal size.

But the icons within GreenShot are unusable small - and of course same and even more problem in the GreenShot Editor.

I have the same issue with my 4K 15” laptop, we Need a dynamic solution for people working on docking stations where i switch from 1080p to 2160p.
All we need is to make the app verify resolution for primary monitor and upscale icons. This would bring joy to many users since 4K is getting much more popular
i have donated to this project before and will do again
