    we all know we can use "Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display" to change the size of all items.

    the native resolution of sp3 is 1440p, we increase the sizing to 200%, so it's "actually" 720p , by the time we play a movie, a 720p movie will be not resizing, but if we play a 1080p movie, it will "resized" to 720p, which is not "expected"....

    Is it possible to be 1080p to play the movie?

    Sorry but I don't understand your logic. On full screen, video player create a layer with the movie resolution.

    720p is not half of 1440p.

    1280x720=921,600
    2160x1440=3,110,400

    So 720p is actually only 30% of 1440p, meaning icons must be at 338% size to appear like 720p on a 1440p display.

    sorry guys, maybe my movie player misled me, when I open the movie, it tells me the size is 619p (86%), so I just assumed that in full screen, it will resize to no more than 720p....
