Modify the system-wide interface scale factor
Authored by: mrkino on Jan 25, '06 06:06:49PM

Im still a little unclear as to what exactly this does. From what i understand, it makes application windows smaller, so more windows fit on the screen.

would someone post, or send me some pictures of this in effect? If it is what i think it is, its awesome!!

Modify the system-wide interface scale factor

Maybe this will help...it is also explained a ways down this page .

Note that this is NOT the same effect you get when you use Universal Access scaling. That just makes the same number of pixels bigger. This actually renders at the specified resolution.
