Running Motive on High-resolution Displays[edit]

When running Motive on displays with high pixel density, (e.g. 4K resolution displays) the software UI may not be scaled properly and some of the buttons may appear to be very small on the screen. In these cases, you can simply adjust the windows configuration to prevent the scaling on high-resolution displays. Follow the below steps for configuring this.


  1. Right click on the Motive Icon > Select Properties
  2. Navigate to the Compatibility tab
  3. Check "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:"
  4. Make sure “System” is selected as shown in the image below.
