For the guys running HG or anyone that knows. On these new higher resolution laptop displays it makes HG too small. Can be difficult to read and edit photos. What screen settings are you using? I have played around with the settings, but haven't been satisfied.

I have a Lenovo Yoga 13 Ideapad (13" screen) with a resolution of 1600x900. It works great for me. I don't require spectacles...yet.

My laptop is connected to a 32" monitor. No problems here. Actually Windows 10 has helped HG to run faster on my computer.

Wow, you're already using Windows 10

Mike,

My experience has been windows 10 is pretty stable. My biggest gripe has been the new browser can be slow to load at times. Also, it doesn't play well with other browsers yet.

Thanks! Does it come with IE 11 or some other browser now?

The new browser is called Edge, it is much quicker and simpler than internet explorer, but internet explorer is included and will run in the background for when you need it or you can use it when you want.

As did I...just wasn't brave enough to hit the button yet. Free upgrade sounded nice though.

Mike,
Not so far, very limited use by me so far. Outlook email, Chrome browser, HG program. Actually sped up my HG program, had a nasty lag in it.
