I have followed the tutorials on fixing the resolution issues with EZ-Builder but I am still not getting a fix. The icons at the top are displaying all strange and the text is way too small. I changed my apps and text size on my computer in the display settings from 125-350% on my 4K monitor and even reduced the resolution of my screen and still no luck. Anyone have a fix for this?

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


Hi @cubco,

What screen resolution are you running at it seems very high?

I'm guessing you have but figured I'd check anyway: have you tried going down to 1920x1080?


Yes, as stated I am running a 4K resolution and as I also said I reduced the screen resolution to 1920x1080 and still no luck.


Does changing your resolution make any difference? Controls get larger, etc? Are your resolution changes actually taking?

Have you changed your overall Zoom settings at all? Using Ctrl+scroll wheel on your mouse?


I feel your pain. If EZ Builder has any weaknesses it the GUI. We builders have been having issues with this part of EZ Builder's integration into Windows for forever. Other than this issue with the visual aspects, this platform is stellar.

So, what to do? I bet you're doing everything right. However I think you're missing one step. When You make a change in your Windows Display settings you need to reboot your entire computer. I think the tutorial may state this fact but it's an easy oversight. It seems to me that EZ Builder won't make the same changes to scaling on the fly that most other windows programs do. You need to reboot to see the full effect of each of your adjustments.

Hope this helps. Winky


I just got a 4K resolution laptop and was having the save issue at the Toshiba recommended settings (3840*2160 250%)

be sure to log out and back in before starting EZ Builder for the changes to take effect



I forgot to mention I'm using EZ-Builder vs 2017.11.13.00
