For some reason some apps scale and some don’t. MT4 is an old program so not a huge surprise, but MSI Afterburner is a graphics setup program, geez.

Anyway, the fix is shown below, click on the apps EXE file and select Properties:

Here is a close up of what it should look like when fixed:

Click “Change high DPI settings” then check “Override hide DPI scaling blah blah blah” and set it to “System” and restart the app. All should be well.
