In File Manager resolution does not match - its too large

SO I procured some soundpools from another source. Function Loops to be precise. AT first I had them stored in their own folder for organizational purposes, until I realized that when I re-opened my song to edit, Music Maker couldn't find the Loop, therefore I now store all my soundpools in Shop under Soundpools, all mixed together. This solved that conundrum.

Now I know that these "alien" soundpools will not be visible or usable through the Soundloop interface such as the Soundpools bought through the Music Maker store, although these soundpools have nice cover art as well.

I have to use windows explore to drag and drop(but need a media player to open to hear a sample),


Use the built in File Manager from the Music Maker GUI. Samples can be played through the program nicely.

My problem is the File Manager resolution does not match the resolution of what I have Music Maker running at , 4k.

The font and folder sizes/categories are too large that when I get down to my SHOP folder -I have had to stretch the File Manager window to more than half the screen to read what samples names are.

Can we get a fix for this please?

Did you try any of the Override High DPI settings in the programs shortcut?

Do make a note of the original settings, before trying these.

I used the Override in Compatibility setting to get Music Maker to run in 4K initially, as a matter of fact you helped me with this - here is the forum post -

thank you very much.

Now, I only need to get the File Manager within Music Maker to be in 4K too....that is as simple as it gets
