Purpose: To provide a solution to bug that makes the toolbar containing icons smaller than it is supposed to be.

Last Updated: July 2020

When using the IMU GUI, it is possible that your window may appear as below. Note how the icon toolbar at the top is much smaller than it typically appears. The difference in the two windows can be seen in the image below.

To fix this, the user should right click on the GUI .exe file, and then click “Properties” and select the “Compatibility” tab as shown below.

When in this window, click “Change high DPI settings.”

From there, check the checkbox underneath “High DPI scaling override” and in the drop-down menu change it from "Application" to "System" as shown below.
