    Add scaling options to display settings in kali linux 2020.1

    I recently installed Kali Linux 2020.1 and my laptop has a 4k panel
    The resolution is not a problem however due to the screens high pixel density all of the icons, menus and other features are tiny.
    After a while I could not find any options to adjust the screen scale.
    In the next version please add it in.

    From an upset pen tester with a 4k screen laptop.

    EDIT: This is installed on VirtualBox and I have installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions too, but I can't see any differences other than a slight improvement in performance.

    Hello, Did you ever figure out a fix for your icons and 4k?

    I am running 2020.4. I was able to get my icons bigger using this method. I went to the Start Button Top Left "Dragon Logo" > Then bottom right of the menu I clicked on the three little dots called Settings Manager > Appearance > Settings > Window Scaling > 2x

    I hope this might help someone. If anyone has a better way please let me know. I still had to increase my text size in the terminal.

    Click the Start Menu and Search for "hidp" Click Kali HiDPI Mode. I believe this will fix your issue.

    Hope that works for you.
