    I’m running bootcamp win 10 on my new pro and have loaded a couple of old games on it. The games seem to run fine but when they put up a smaller secondary window they are super small. Example was last night I loaded Flight Simulator 10 and screen and graphics are fine but when I first load it the intro screen where you pick flight, plane etc is so small you can barely make out the words. It’s 4 1/2” by 3 1/4” and the font must be about a 2. Going into setup, display it says landscape, res 5120 x 2880 and scale of 300% (recommended).
    What is everyone else doing to get better function out of these games in Win 10?

    Is there no setting in the game setup to make it run Full Screen? Another option would be to click on the window controls, the red, yellow and green coloured squares in top right-hand corner of the window, to maximise that small window to full screen size.

    No setting. When you click the icon it brings up the tiny window where you pick your mission, plane, etc then it loads. Once loaded it’s full screen. The problem is the tiny screen. All it has is the - and x option.

    Microsoft Flight simulator doesn't respect resolution independence.

    In my opinion, scaling 200% works best, same as default in macOS.
