Ah, that helps a lot, many thanks!
. I'll play around with this a bit.
At the home desktop I can us 1920 x 1080, but the max. resolution is 1920 x 1200, so I probably have to live with a little stretch because I want to use full windowed at least. On the laptop though the max. resolution is 1600 x 900 which is somewhere within between the 2 standard HD resolutions Amitkit comes with. The reason to do this is to use the whole screen instead of just a (smaller) window.
The 2 things I realized are the already described icon font "issue" and that the standard icon font looks a bit distorted, and I wanted to get a more smooth appearance. That's just as a short explanation for my request.
