Yes, that's the settings I was talking about (my OS is in French, so I
couldn't quote you the exact text.)

Mine is set at 200%, as recommended by Windows -  and which makes the text
just large enough to be readable for me.

I think that would possibly work out best - people could customize to their
liking. With so many different display, including 4k monitors, it makes
sense to just make it user-configurable.
