Is there any way to disable the High DPI scaling of Microsoft Edge?

 

That UI looks awfully big if my DPI is set for 125%. I have it disabled on Chrome.

Example) chrome.exe” /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1“

 

But this may be the only thing preventing me from using Microsoft Edge.

As expected, changing the compatibility settings for the executables (msedge.exe) doesn't work. But is there another workaround?

@coolpix Thanks for letting us know. It looks like this was a known issue, so the good news is that the scaling should be fixed! Can you please give it a try in Dev (and if that doesn't do it, the newest version of Canary) and let us know if the issue persists?
