Force DPI Scaling For Configuration Manager Console

Versions of Configuration Manager Console prior to 1704 are painful to use on  4K displays which much of the text either completely unreadable or requires use of magnifier…

A shim can be created using Application Compatibility Administrator (x86) from the Windows ADK to generate a fix using the DpiUnaware shim. This could also be applied to any application that displays incorrectly on high DPI screens.

This SHIM can also be downloaded here https://1drv.ms/u/s!AiFhB4fT6aiTgdwnQTct1TdZHK1swQ

This can be installed from administrative cmd prompt :
