Desktop app is too large

Hello all,
I recently just got a new laptop and I just downloaded the GoPro app on it. When I open it the size of the app is enlarged to a point where my whole screen is covered by only part of the app. I can click help and the other tools but when I select something, I cannot do click on anything in the center of the app because the frame is too enlarged and doesn’t show the center. My laptop itself doesn’t have anything enlarged and I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

Re: Desktop app is too large

Hi @smity,

Thanks for reaching out. The screen display of your computer might be set in lower resolution than recommended or the size of text, apps and other items are set in large scale. 
 

Try to maximizing the application's display; press and hold the Option key on your keyboard while you click the green maximize button "+" icon (green circle with plus icon) in the top-left corner of an app window. You can also double-click an app’s title bar to maximize the window (as long as the option to do so is set to “zoom” in Dock preferences).

 

Let us know how it goes.

Kind Regards,

Ann
