If you are a QuickBooks user, you may have encountered display issues where the orientation is messed up, the fonts are broken, the size is mismatched, icons are hazy or invisible, fields are overlapping, and the transaction form is not fitted on the screen. This problem is known as “QuickBooks display issues,” which occurs when QuickBooks is run on a high-resolution graphic display monitor. In this blog post, we will discuss how to resolve this display problem by bringing some changes to your default setting.

Counting Upon the Reasons of Display Issue

Before we jump into resolving the display issue, it is important to identify the reasons behind it. Here are some responsive causes leading to the display error:

  1. The old display configurations in QuickBooks were based on old computer screens, and the advanced resolution of newer computers will demand some changes in setups.
  2. The view preference set on QuickBooks must not have been changed for the same system, which can also add to the fuss.
  3. QuickBooks supports the default Windows DPI (dots per inch), and if you change the default windows settings, QuickBooks’ display will deteriorate.

Once you identify the reasons, it becomes easier to resolve the issue.
