Summary0001066: Optimization for 1920 x 1080 displays

I've noticed that OpenMPT turns out a bit blurry on my new laptop's screen, and its really ugly. The problem is only fixed when increasing the size of on-screen elements in the Windows 10 settings, however. But I don't want to have every element on my screen blown up huge just to use OpenMPT, while making it feel good on my eyes as well.

Just in case, here is a screenshot

This has nothing to do with the screen resolution but with the screen pixel density. You appear to have a high-DPI screen, or at least have configured Windows to use a high DPI, so it has to upscale applications that are not DPI-aware. OpenMPT can be configured to be DPI-aware (see Display.HighResUI option), but currently the icons and a few other GUI items will look too small then. Many VST plugins also have problems with high-DPI screens, which is another reason why this setting is not enabled by default.
