Re: Unusable on 4K monitors (Windows 10)--change the display settings via the Properties for the application

As you have no doubt found, with the Creator update MS now limits display options to 25% increments in Display settings (via the context menu for the Desktop).

Other than that, the only other method seems to be to change the display via the Properties for the application. That is, the context menu for, say, Resolve or Fusion.

Right click on the Desktop icon/Properties/Compatibility/Change high DPI settings.

You will find a couple of less-than-obvious options (e.g., "Use the DPI that's set for my main display when ... ," and, "High DPI scaling override ...").

This will surely require multiple log off/on cycles to experiment with various guesses for a workable setting. With this approach your Display settings page will then show that you are using a "Custom" display setting.

I agree that some Resolve and Fusion dialog text can be microscopic and making those legible may result in too-large text elsewhere.

One clue to watch for is the startup splash screen for Resolve or Fusion: the smaller text used there is a clue as to the eventual text size when it completes its startup.

Good luck!
Mike
