Support Hi Res Monitors

Please solve the awkward manner in which customers with Hi Res Monitors (e.g. 2560 X 1440) handle quicken views, registers, etc. I constantly have to resize windows and columns as i deal with each account. Got to believe that this a common frustration with many users with Hi Res Monitors.

    I have to monitors (3840 x 2160) and I do not have these issues.  I am using Q2020 R23.18 and Windows 10.  I have the Scale and Layout setting in Display set to 175%.

    I use Quicken only in a non-full screen mode.  I set the windows size, then set all of the columns register views etc. then exit Quicken.  When I reopen it there is no need to resize or mess with the columns in registers.

    What is frustrating is that if I where to and use Quicken on my laptop where the resolution is different then I do have to mess with this because Quicken doesn't have the ability to scale these settings up or down.

    There is quite a bit of old code in Q and that makes it very, Very, VERY had to truly support Hi Res monitors without having to rewrite Q from the ground up.

    I have heard how old the Q code is for some time. Are there any plans to rewrite in newer/better code?

    That's pretty funny. It's not getting any younger.

    We fellow users are not privy to that information.

    Getting tired of moving/resizing the window every time I open it.

    Well, I didn't know about the old code but that explains why when you do resize a window, it constantly refreshes and is so slow to respond. Reminds me of doing high-end CAD work back in the '90's. Wasn't there an announcement a few months back that they had updated something with the graphics?

    Regardless, if they want to stay relevant, they need to do whatever it takes to get it up to date. 4K monitors (and higher) are here to stay, and becoming more and more common. Try to keep up. I've never been a fan of Quicken, I only switched to it because (removed) which I liked a lot better.

    I switched from Mac to PC and the Windows version makes my eyes bleed. I spend more time messing with the setting trying to get it to look ok than I do actually using it. The desktop is soooo bad. I may just try to use the mobile and web when I can ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I just checked to see if there was anything new on the blurry Quicken display on 4K monitors but didn't find any solution other that what I posted last May.

    Adding my vote here to have quicken add support for higher-resolution screens, I’m have extremely large text being blown up on the screen which makes work impossible
