Setting AppleDisplayScaleFactor for single applications
Authored by: wschnaer on Mar 23, '11 06:58:08AM

Six stars out of five! I used this on Excel 2011 and it works great. I have been annoyed forever that Excel on my iMac was visually smaller than it was on a Windows display. Enlarging the view to 125% was carried over on the workbook and it opened too big on Windows machines. Setting the display factor to 1.25 solved the problem.

The only improvement that I would want was already pointed out - the menubar is increased by the scale factor also, which seems anomalous as I would have thought that the menubar was controlled by the OS and not by the app.
