    No scaling for windows? Or is it only 4k? Can't find any scaling options in the beta. (3440x1440).

    Curious, do the new features also work for the "classic" Small Mode (my preferred setting) or just Large Mode and/or Big Picture Mode?

    Desktop modes both small and large scaled nicely in my experience. Couldn't spend much time with BPM because I got black screens on BPM exit, had to end task to close steam.

    If you're using 100%, then there is no change. Some comments from people with 1440p screens said their overlays got bigger and they liked it before. I don't have one so you can check that for yourself.

    2-week old news.

    It works automatically.

    100% means no scaling.

    No bigger text that i can see. In the olden days you could replace fonts but i have not bothered lately.
    A little weak eye sight so i prefer a bit bigger fonts.
    Edit; Ah i see what you mean . It will now follow windows scaling. 125% looks great now.

    Steam is the one and only DRM I want in my life.

    So Valve can do all these great things, but they can let you change the font size? Really? So we all have to wear reading glasses to see the font. Cmon!

    This is kind of lame. It seems to only allow either 100% or 200%. No 125%, no 150%...

    Dear Valve. People use monitors of different sizes. Not all 4K monitors have the same DPI. Also, what about 23" 1440 monitors? 24"?

    Seriously? A multi-billion dollar company can't get DPI right? In a piece of software that's used by an insane amount of people around the world?

    Support for the 2017 Creators Update? Lol, everyone is already on the Fall Creators Update! Steam's lack of support for Windows 10 in the beginning is kicking them where it hurts. The interface is so old compared with Origin/Uplay.

    Origin blows chunks for the way they manage game libraries. It is broken on a fundamental level.

    Works fine with 150% for me.

    Origin UI is very buggy. Some elements scaled, some not.
