Formatting Issue Upon Opening of Form

I recently encountered a formatting issue when I open a form. In the screenshot below, the formatting looks unattractive and the size of the objects are smaller in length. When I download the template and open it in InfoPath, I get the same ugly format.


I was able to identify another possible cause: screen resolution



  • Right click on your desktop and click Display Settings


  • Adjust option "Change the size of text, apps and other items" to 100%


  • Sign out of your account in Windows


After logging in, open your form. You will see the correct format



Take note that this solution is applicable with  Windows 10 with a 3200 x 1800 recommended resolution.

Hello Peter,

Thanks for the post. I have this issue with some forms which are now being used on high resolution displays. I also changed the text size to <150% which apparently disslows DPI and everything looks ok on the infopath form. However, the other text in windows is unreadable. Even if you increase the text size for the menus etc in the advanced settings, the toolbar etc is so small its unusable. Any ideas on how to fix this. Is it a DPI issue with windows, is it necessary to redesign the forms?
