Hey Team, Burpsuite Version :- 2021.5 Build 7586 I've being using burp for about 3 months. In my old laptop, I had no problem using burpsuite. But, recently I bought a new laptop and I have some problems with the burpsuite now. I found why it's not working correctly. My old laptop's display resolution was 1366x768 and display scaling was 100%. Also, the display's physical length is 15.6 inches. Now, in my new one, Display resolution is 1980x1280 and display scaling is 125%. And, the problem is the display's physical length is 15.6 inches. Due to the small size of the display, Windows recommended me 125%. Also, It is easier to use and every text and other details are very clear. But, when I set display scaling to 100% burpsuite started working fine. But, it is super hard use the laptop due to the small text. Here are my system details. Old Laptop: CPU : i3 3227U 1.8Ghz Memory : 4GB Graphics : Intel HD Graphics 4000 Operating System : Windows 10 - Version 20H2 Java Version : "Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13)" New Laptop: CPU : i7 1165G7 4.7Ghz Memory : 8GB Graphics : Intel Iris XE Graphics & Nvidia Geforce MX330 Operating System : Windows 10 - Version 20H2 Java Version : "Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13)" (same as old one) Java Version :- https://i.imgur.com/Mi6dL0L.png Windows 10 Version :- https://i.imgur.com/b6RFLYR.png Burpsuite version :- https://i.imgur.com/lNg2dfx.png My Graphics (Nvidia) :- https://i.imgur.com/qKZR5i8.png My Graphics (Intel) :- https://i.imgur.com/zi3ZT1h.png Thanks a lot.

Hi Are you using the standalone JAR file or the installer version of Burp?

Standalone JAR File

Could you try adding the following command-line argument when you launch Burp?

-Dsun.java2d.uiScale=1

So for example: java -Dsun.java2d.uiScale=1 -jar burpsuite.jar
