There are display adjustments you can make on your Windows computer that can optimize how much of the usable typing window is available in Exam4:

1. In your Display settings, make sure your Scaling is set to 100%. If you have a high resolution display, reducing your resolution may also help. Start with a resolution of about 1440x900 (keep the scaling at 100%). Adjust up or down to find what works best on your machine.

2. On start-up Screen3 in Exam4, choose the appropriate font-size to adjust the width of the typing window. A larger font-size will yield a larger typing window. Try a few exams to see what works best. We suggest choosing the Large or XL setting and adjusting from there.

To adjust the Resolution and Scaling setting:

  • Type "Display Settings" into the search window at the lower left of your screen and click where it says "Display Settings" on the right side of the pop--up window:
  • Find "Scale and layout", and change the scaling factor - try 100%.
  • If the box is grayed out, you may have to click on "turn off custom scaling" first to make this adjustment.


In Exam4, choose the Large or XL font-size on start-up Screen3 to make the typing window use more space.
