Access 2003 v access2010 question

Hi EE

I have an app developed in Access 2003. Some  Laptops run Access2010 for those Laptops I make an mde in Access 2010. I installed onto a Laptop running 2010 with same display resolution as my Monitor, 1920x1080, Orientation landscape and the fonts size default 100%. One of the forms wouldn't open to its full width so the cmd buttons down the right hand side wont show. I have the same monitor but running access 2003 and it opens ok. Also some forms that should center are slightly to the left in 2010 but centre in 2003. The form properties are AutoResize = Yes and AutoCentre = Yes.
It's not a big deal but frustrating, any help appreciated

It is most likely due to different DPI settings. When you adjust DPI settings (in Windows 8.1 it is done via "Make text bigger" option, see attached) the window controls reposition. It is really frustrating issue for software developers. You need to modify a lot of code to make your program DPI-aware. I recommend you ask the user to change the DPI settings back to what it wasDPI settings on Windows 8.1

Checked the laptop concerned DPI is set to the default setting of 100% . Access 2003 has no problems what so ever

Be sure that the Windows and Office installations on those machines are fully up to date - and check the video card drivers as well to make sure they're using the latest. If the same database works fine on other machines, then the problem is with the environment.
