    Scaling on high-resolution screens

    I bought a new laptop with a 13" but HIGH (3800x1800) resolution screen.

    W8.1 has a display feature where ALL objects can be scaled larger to deal with the fine resolution.

    However, I have one program on the desktop that sometimes flips this off and "goes native". Any idea why this would happen?
