    Enums of properties are cut off!

    For example this enum when used in Win 10 in comparison to Win 11 which it works as it shall but with Win 10 and VB6 is not properly shown...The list shown is "cut off". Is there any fixes for this matter?

    Looks like you have dpi awareness enabled, should disable.

    Ok, I have used ResourceHacker to fix the VB6 IDE. Where do I alternate on/off for DPI awareness? I just did exactly the same for my Win 10 machine as for for my Win 11 laptop. No probs with my laptop.

    Through Explorer open the properties for vb6.exe. Then use the compatibility tab. I use the compatibility mode for XP SP3 and run as admin. Then my manifest for it just omits any mention of dpi or Windows version compatibility; all it does is enable comctl6.

    Always develop on a 96 dpi monitor. Test working compiled programs with GDI Scaling at various dpi levels.
