I have had to recently reset Windows 10 due to some computer issues. However, upon reinstalling Anki, the scaling of the program is huge. This includes texts, text boxes, and buttons. I have tried changing the compatibility settings however this does not seem to fix the issue. Does anyone know how to return the scale of the program back to normal?

The image provided shows how largely scaled the program is. This is a screenshot of my entire desktop screen

    You can reduce your Windows display scaling to 200% or less in the system settings (easier), or override the scaling in Anki:
