I am looking for a method where I can find the display percentage used in Windows 7, 8 and 10. I'm fairly sure this is NOT the same as the magnification level. It is making all forms size in a weird way in my projects but I'm finding more and more people are using this feature (especially with Tablets) and so more and more of my forms look strange.

I'm using VB6 and VBA still so I could do with examples formatted for this language.

Below, I have put an image of where you change the setting and you'll see it is not the same as Magnification - a subject for which there seem to be a lot of pages on the web discussing. I think I am unsure of the correct terminology and therefore not finding the pages/solutions I need.

Thank you in advance.
