Hi Vanessa,

It is really great to have you on this list.

FWIW, I have just tried running Cuis on Windows 10 in VMware Fusion 12.1.2 using the following prebuilt VM:

However, I don’t get the full 3072 at 1920 resolution of my Retina Display:
Display extent. 1536 at 960.
(3072 at 1920) / Display extent. 2 at 2.

So it seems that workaround does not work in all cases. It is even slightly less than the MacOS version:
Display extent. 1792 at 1120.

(3072 at 1920) / Display extent. 12/7 at 12/7.
