Bug report #18246

Icons and fonts far too huge on Hi DPI display

Added by Jochen Schwarze over 6 years ago. Updated about 6 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:3.0.0 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows 10 Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:26137


Just installed QGIS 3.0 from OSGeo4W Network installer on a 13'' convertible notebook with 3200x1800 resolution (Win10) and everything is far too huge (even splash screen, toolbars and menu bar cover nearly half the display height, default icon size 24, default font size 8pt):

In this way it is absolutely unusable, and I wonder why the 2.99.0-301 (installed exactly the same way) from last week looked totally normal.
