    Metro UI way too small on high res monitors


    I've just had my PC to be updated to Windows 8.1 and I'm running it on a screen resolution is 2560 x 1440 (a 27" monitor.) I'm happy they've addressed the DPI problems with the desktop and high resolutions in this release. However, I'm having a different sort of problem now... With the size of the Metro UI being way too small.

    I've already set it to the "larger" setting, but the menu is still way too small, and microscopic. I've seen similar reports already. Is there any fix to this yet or some workaround? Thanks!
