Hidpi MacOS on Dell P2415Q  



Hi guys,

I'm having trouble enabling 1080p(HiDIP) on my external monitor Dell P2415Q. I'm not too sure if selecting 'default for display' already has the option set as HiDIP.

when I click and hold [alt + scaled button] on my Dell P2415Q it doesn't have the option to select >>> 1920 x 1080 (HiDPI)

Nice inormation


I've never tried it myself but this article from 2015 implies that you may have to enable HiDPI mode via a terminal command. (The description for the app ResolutionTab says much the same)


Hi, i actually have this monitor on my mac mini 2018 (mojave) and I'm running at 4k but 1920x1080 (scaled).  on my computer there is an option for 1920x1080, i believe it if it doesn't say 'low resolution' then i think you are running in 4k scaled mode.  my text is crystal clear.
