I get this question a LOT and I personally wish I had a good and clear answer. It’s been asked widely online over the years.
Since things change, I am asking again.
How do we effectively increase the font size for Dynamics GP text? What #lifeHacks do you use to make this easier?

I refer for those questions most of the time to my two fav MVP’s:
Steve Endov wrote about it years ago: https://dynamicsgpland.blogspot.com/2016/09/fix-dynamics-gp-scaling-and-font-size.html
David Musgrave extensively wrote about it too: https://winthropdc.wordpress.com/2016/11/08/gppt-using-microsoft-dynamics-gp-with-high-dpi-on-high-resolution-monitors/
I use a combination of various settings, depending on what platform is used to run GP (i.e. local client or remote desktop published GP, TS on Win 2016 / 2019).
Every Windows version is a little different in behavior and as Microsoft’s own acknowledgement, there is no single solution.
Hope that helps,
Install GP Power Tools and use it to fix the font scaling and enable bitmap scaling via the Dex.ini Settings window.
All explained on my blog (as highlighted by B@) https://winthropdc.wordpress.com/2016/11/08/gppt-using-microsoft-dynamics-gp-with-high-dpi-on-high-resolution-monitors/
PS: I also fixed the screen output memory for report writer ages ago when you asked and now have fixed Microsoft’s bad implementation of their “fix” (just maximizing).
Thanks for the feedback - maybe I am just doing something wrong. Does anyone have a video showing this and how it changes for them?
Every company could just brand a couple dozen of these for their employees?
@WinthropDC - does your high res monitor fix work on terminal server/remote app as well?
Yes. We have seen success with Terminal servers.
Build 29 of GP Power Tools automatically applies the fix during installation.

Hey @WinthropDC ,
I installed GPPT on to my Dev server with trial licensing, rebooted and still having some issues with some of the windows. Not sure if you have any other ideas. When we disconnect from a terminal server session and then reconnect to the same session (close your laptop and reopen it), we lose the following from our GP windows:
- Scroll bar and arrows
See attached screenshot. Let me know if there’s all of a sudden some other things that I can tweak in GPPT.
I have seen issues like this reported before. But don’t know the cause or a fix yet.
Restarting session or server sometimes helps.
