Also I got a new laptop and the display is kinda weird. 

The DP size looks super small compared to on my old laptop. 

I don't know what to do about that? All canvasses are smaller than they should be by like over half. 

What I mean...

How it looks:

What's your resolution set to?

If you don't know, click this link and it will tell you:  http://www.whatismyscreenresolution.com/

+ Where did you take the second screenshot? The resolution in the second screenshot looks smaller than yours. (The windows and everything appear more zoomed in compared to the first screenshot.)

@Queen The second screen shot is my old laptop. "Laptop #1"

It's not the resolution. I already tried putting it as the same as laptop #1 and they canvas stayed small.

Resolution isn't that simple.  Various things can make resolutions look different even if they're set the same.

What's your screen size on your old laptop vs. your new laptop?  It usually gives it to you in inches.

My old monitor was 16'' with a 1920x1080 resolution. My new monitor is a 24'' with the same resolution, but everything looks smaller on my new monitor vs my old one.

@Queen Laptop #2 (With the issue) is 15.6 inches and the other... Not sure but it's smaller than this one by a little bit.

Okay real quickly. Save a 160x220 canvas and upload it to imgur or something.

Is it the same size as it shows on your drawing program? Or does it look bigger?

@Queen I did that and it is bigger. I don't feel like it's the right size still though but it is larger.



Update: I opened 160x220 in Corel Painter and it remained small there as well.

If you're using windows, right click on your desktop and click on display settings.



Make sure that's set to 100%.

What about checking the option of high DPI scaling?

When you right click on the icon of the software and go to properties, in the compatibility tab there's an option to enable/disable display scaling on high DPI settings. Close and re-launch the software to see if there's any difference.

In my case I wanted the opposite and this setting helped.

^ I was going to suggest that next, but I was going through the list of troubleshooting one step at a time so she wasn't overwhelmed.

This is apparently a common problem on newer computers with Windows 10 or Macs with Retina displays.

@Queen

So you kill them slowly, instead of smackhooving in one shot

Anymoose... let's wait and let her try these things. Hopefully something will work.
