I have a full hd screen, and my interface is too small. I can't find scaling in system settings. What should I do?


1 Answer 1


Scaling factors can be configured by gsettings in terminal (seen in Launchpad):

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 1
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 1

You can play around with the values.

    And what about different scaling on different monitors at one time?

  • That's a different question. Please edit your question or ask a new question for the sake of clear answers.

  • useless example since it is already set to 1 and it is an integer value (as far as I know). The option is 1 or 2 and is available in the settings panel... not 1.25. Please correct me if I am wrong. Jan 14, 2020 at 11:16
