Font size problem in file explorer/file view

Hello everyone, I have a user with a strange issue that I can't seem to get a grasp on. When he opens his solidworks vault in file explorer, the menu bars/columns are not scaling properly with the font size in the file/folder list. I have attached a picture. I can assure you that he only has this problem viewing the epdm vault and all other file explorer views are normal. He does have a "zoomed" view in display properties (larger view of text, etc), but even if I set that to normal (100%), the fonts in his epdm file view are still askew. I checked custom font sizing in his display properties but there is nothing out of the ordinary. Compounding this issue is the fact that it only occurs on his native laptop screen; when he docks the laptop to his external monitors, the view seems normal.


We are using:

Solidworks 2016 x64 Edition SP03 (

Solidworks PDM Client (16.03.0064)


Thank you!
