Hey guys today am going to share a registry key that could help you to get better screen resolution in all apps. I tested it on my device and it is giving good result
PATH: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Theme
KEY: FontScale
VALUE: any value b/w 10 to 100 (recommended 50)

I hope it helps you
Click thanks if you like

Looks neat to me, using the UserPreferenceWidth did the same but for some apps only, i thought we could add the fifth button in action center with this too.
Any key for that?

you did not get a better screen, you just made the text smaller

No in ease of access you dont get as low as he has mentioned.
Use UserPreferenceWidth=75
that too gives lower font size

weird, it worked for me on Lumia 525, u need to restart the phone once u edit the registry, atleast that was what I had to do to get it to work. Remember to pin the Preview for developers app to the start screen before u restart the phone or else it disappears from the app list.
i.e if you use the PfD reg tool hack

This is a lot better to add this key insteed change font scale!!

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Theme]
"UserPreferenceWidth"=DWORD:0x0000004B
& for 5 actions button:
Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Settings\QuickSettingElements\Pinned]
"AllowedQuickSettingsElements"=DWORD:00000005
