Program window overflows the screen and cannot be resized
« on: August 18, 2019, 01:28:37 PM »
Even with its newest version, Avast did not produce a program window that fits onto my laptop computer's screen. It hangs past the top and bottom edges.

Hi, seems you did tweak DPI, reset it to 100 and you're good to go.

If the DPI was modified from 100 to 120, shouldn't the Avast window appear to be smaller instead of larger?

The Avast window should just barely fit in the 1366 x 768 screen, even allowing for a taskbar.

The Avast window is pretty large (you might argue unnecessarily so), and that screen resolution is dismal. Not a great combination.
