For some reason I feel obliged to add something useful here after using snip
For devs that are annoyed that this needs to be done manually, you can make a skin that's just

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
OnRefreshAction=["""reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers" /v "#PROGRAMPATH#Rainmeter.exe" /t "REG_SZ" /d "~ HIGHDPIAWARE""""][!DeactivateConfig]
to basically do what the iamges from the first post are doing, after that, just tell the users to restart Rainmeter

I'm loath in the extreme to ever suggest that folks write to their Windows Registry with Rainmeter. To each his own of course.
