Some windows 10 computers with very high def screens (e.g. 4k) make Clarity unusable. This is due to the way Win10 tries to scale the app to fit the high DPI screen, rather than letting Clarity work it out.


The solution is quite simple.


Right click on the Clarity icon and select "Properties". 
   Select the "Compatibility" tab then tick "Override high DPI scaling behaviour". 
      Below this is "Scaling performed by:" there is a drop down list...Select "System".
Repeat this for the ClaritySupervisor icon as well.
This will make Clarity look great on the high def display.
