Just got a new 4k HD monitor; on a Win 8.1 machine I set the slider regulating the magnification factor of all desktop elements to the 2nd of 4 possible positions ("medium small").


The AHK Window Spy now returns mouse position results that are too small by a factor of 1.25. Looks like there's some incompatibility with the Win 8.x way of scaling elements.

What you might try is using WinGetActiveStats to see if that is returning the correct

results for the active window. Other commands you can use in conjunction would be

WinGetClass, and the ControlGet series of commands to build a similarly functioning

ahk routine.
