Data Services Designer Login Screen is too small - how can it be resized?

Logging into a remote Server where the Display is managed by an administrator. When Designer is launched the screen is appearing as below:

Holding the cursor over the edges is not indicating it can be resized. All other applications on the remote desktop open normally. Does anyone have a solution for how to resize (please not I cannot adjust resolution or scaling - that is controlled by a remote administrator)

I can login and switch repositories when I get in - but this is becoming quite a hassle.

Thank you for any assistance !

Marcus - THANK YOU!

For this issue - exactly as you said - I went to the properties of the Designer, then to the 'Compatability' tab.

Go to the Properties of the Designer and go to the Compatibility tab. Select ‘Change high DPI settings’:

As you see below - I checked to override - however - in my cans I used 'Scalling performed by:' System - not application.

Hi Kenneth,

I struggled with that issue for a long time, too.

Finally I found a hint when I installed the BI Platform Support Tool. Under the link https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Getting+Started+with+the+Windows+client+version#GettingSt... you will find the instructions how I was able to solve the issue with the DS Designer (of course, you need to change the properties of the Designer.exe).

Best regards

Marcus

Hi klynchfl,

What kind of Remote Desktop Tool are you using?

After you login, is the designer window also this small or just the login window?

Thanks for the response Joseph!

Really no oddities with the connection - Using Widows Remote Desktop from a VDI to the Server hosting DataServices front end (this is an Amazon hosted Windows Server 2019).

All icons and displays are normal - yet when I go and launch Designer that image is exactly what pops up.

Hi klynchfl,

Renaming %DS_USER_DIR%\DSUserConfig.txt and try launching the designer again.

Hi Joseph, I utilized another user's copy of DSUserConfig.txt who is not having the same issue on their login to the same server - still same situation.

Thanks!
