DELL Alienware 17R3 - Some apps appear out of resolution, too small letters, tool menu and icons!!

So, I recently purchased this laptop and everything was fine until I started to see applications display in what I only guess to be a very very high resolution cause the menus, text, icons etc... inside the app are so small you need a magnifying glass to see them.
Here is what I have done so far with no success:
- Change resolutions to other than the native one
- Tried adjusting the icon and text sizes via the system and display options in windows 10.
- Went into the properties of each app's executable and checked the "disable display scaling on high DPS settings" and nothing.
- Change the compatibility settings other windows system and checked the "Run As Administrator" and nothing.

The 1st two above only made things worst, icons became too big or it only changed the icons on the desktop and text too. The individual applications didn't experience any changes.

Please any help with this issue will be greatly appreciated since as you can imagine, this is driving me crazy!!!!
Please see the attached images so you have better understating.
