In Windows 10, labels are microscopic!

I've just installed Winamp Pro v5.666 build 3516 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with windows 10. Winamp seems to work fine so far but everything looks tiny. Menu labels & the player section are barely legible. I'm using the Big bento skin. Also, I've increase every font setting to 200% but still the same. Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions on how to fix? Thanks.

The issue is not exclusive to Winamp, it happens a lot lately with laptops and newer devices which no neccesarily have bigger screens but it does have bigger resolutions (that was a correspondence mantained some time ago but not anymore), specially with legacy apps, like Winamp.

In short, the best alternative offered lately is to find other skins that suits you which are made "gigantic" on purpouse, like:
Komodo X Touchscreen
Quinto Black CT

And some others I don't remember now, search on this forum, you'll find similar threads asking more or less the same.

Thanks guys.
That's unfortunate, but even with the small fonts winamp is still better than anything else that I've tried.

This is not always the proper approach to such issues. Increasing the fonts size only will end up in chaotic visual appearance.

The only solution here would be the ability of handling svg-files instead of stretching bitmaps.

It actually doesn't make any difference, don't know if it's Windows or Winamp's fault, but never worked on my case..

I knew there was another with big buttons... CTI skins by Skin Consortium (of course..). Can't find the links so I'll attach my files.

Really spacious and with big buttons, sort of ugly too, but it does its job, it really looks like a car's UI (a 90's car's UI..). Maybe someone would like to update the style of the skin, it's a good skinning exercise..
