Live and Windows High-DPI Monitors

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: Win


Live's GUI appears blurry or out-of-focus on Windows systems using high-resolution monitors.

This happens when the Windows Zoom settings are different from 100% or, from Windows 8.1 on, something else other than “Smaller”.


  • right-click on the Live shortcut in the Start Menu and choose "Preferences" from the list.
  • go to “Compatibility”.
  • tick “Disable display scaling on high-DPI settings”.
  • "Apply" these settings.
