How to optimize display scaling and fix scaling issues on Windows 7

You can use scaling to increase the size of text and other items on the screen in Windows. If you use this scaling feature in this way, Windows will magnify the size of text and UI elements to scale you choose. Moreover, each account on a Computer features a separate setting for scaling purpose. At the same time, if you want to specify the scaling to use for text and UI elements, follow the following steps.

•    First, open the Control Panel and then select the “Appearance And Personalization” option.
•    Now, under the Display option, click Make Text and Other Items Larger or Smaller.
•    Using the default scaling options, you can choose a 100 percent scale (the default), a 125-percent scale, or a 150-percent scale. If you want to use any of the options, make a selection and then click on “Apply”.
•    If you want to choose a custom setting between 100 and 500 percent, you have to click Set Custom Text Size (DPI) in the left pane.
•    Then, use the Scale combo box to select or specify a scale.
•    After that, you have to log off the User and then log on the User again for the changes to take the effect.
•    The main thing you have to remember is if you select a setting higher than 200 percent, UI elements and text may be scaled so large that you can’t work with the Computer.
•    Therefore, you will not be able to get back into Control Panel to restore the original settings.
•    At the same time, if you have any scaling issues, enter dpiscaling at the Command Prompt or in the Search Box of the Start Menu to open the Display page directly that lets you reset the scaling settings.
•    Consider if you’ve enabled the scaling and the text in the Application is blurred or unreadable, you’ve to disable the display scaling for the particular application. If you want to disable the display scaling, right click on the Application’s shortcut and then click Properties.
•    Then select the “Disable display scaling on high DPI Settings” and then click OK.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
