When I open my Visual Studio Project File on my laptop with a 4k display it squishes the Form's design horribly RRS feed

  • Question

  • The only work around I have gotten for this so far is to change the display setting on my laptop to 1920x1080 (the resolution of my desktop the program was initially designed on). I hate that I've blown $1k on a laptop for the 4k display that I can't use while coding with my desktop without dropping the resolution in half.

    Here is a screenshot of it squished when I open it up with the laptop at its 4k native resolution:

    This is the size it says the form is when I open it up that way:

    This is how it looks (how it is SUPPOSED to look) when I change the laptop to 1920x1080:

    Here is the size listed, notice how it has gotten smaller without me making any changes:

    The .exe of the program works on my laptop and all other 4k screens just fine like it does on normal hd monitors. So I'm just confused as to how I can fix it. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
