Can QML (or QWidget) based apps use higher resolution than that given the app?

  • This needs some explaining. If you are running on a high resolution monitor sometimes it is desirable to set the desktop scaling factor to higher than 100%. For me I often set 4K screens to 200% scaling in both Linux and Windows. However, this means that the app only sees half the resolution from the OS. Is it possible to get the full resolution the app actually occupies on screen with a desktop setup this way?

    I have been reading about DPI scaling, but I am not sure that is the same thing. I know about enabling high DPI scaling as well.
