Does wireshark have an option to scale the entire app to better fit a high density "smaller display?" I have a 15. inch 4k Laptop and it shows up really tiny when opened and I have to lean in to make it out, which isn't the best experience..

I downloaded the latest stable version. Wireshark-win64-2.0.1

Any news ? I am using Wireshark-win64-2.0.4, the text probably looks ok, but the buttons are definitely too small...

Wireshark 2.x (Qt version) is a per-monitor DPI aware application so will adjust the display according to the scaling you have set in the Settings -> Display.

Apart from that you can set the font size used for the packet list, packet details and hex bytes pane in the Preferences -> Appearance -> Font and Colors dialog by clicking the font description button.
