Fix for font size problems with Quicken 2014 on Surface PRO

I just purchased Quicken Deluxe 2014 and had a problem with font sizes.  Quicken 2013 was displaying correctly.  After some research I found a solution to the problem on the Microsoft forum for the Surface. Below is the solution:

Disable display scaling for the app

You can disable display scaling for an individual Windows 7 desktop app.

1.      Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search.)

2.      Type the name of the app.

3.      Select the application’s tile on the Start screen (swipe down on the tile or right click), and then tap or click Open file location to open File Explorer on the desktop.

4.      In File Explorer, tap and hold or right-click on the application’s executable (.exe) file and select Properties.

5.      Select the Compatibility tab.

6.      In the Settings section, select the box next to “Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.”

7.      Tap or click OK.

8.      Start the app.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
