Windows 8.1 Will Finally Support High-Resolution Displays Properly

The most obnoxious thing about a great, high-resolution touchscreen display these days is the size of the text. It’s tiny, even on Microsoft’s own high-resolution Surface Pro tablet. That’s about to change with Windows 8.1, however.

During the Build press conference early this morning, Microsoft pledged to fix the tiny-text problem on current high-res Windows machines by increasing the text scaling from 150 per cent to 200 per cent.

Furthermore, Microsoft promised that Windows 8.1 would handle multiple monitors more intelligently, with each being able to have their own independent scaling dependent on the monitor’s resolution.
