NAV client crashes on cursor over taskbar item

Fix an annoying crash when your cursor is over the Windows taskbar item.


To be honest, I didn't figure this out myself, I found the solution online.  It was such a simple solution so I didn't bother to note it.  Unfortunately, I can't recall where I found the solution, so I can't give credit for it, but, today, I ran into the issue again because something reset my settings.  It took me a while, with some trial and error to figure it out again so I thought I put it here to help others and, even myself, in the future.

Open the Properties window

Right-click the shortcut to the NAV client and choose Properties.  Select the Compatibility tab and click on the Change high DPI settings.

Zoom In
DPI Settings

In the DPI settings window, check the "Override high DPI scaling behavior.  Scaling performed by:"

Choose System and click OK.

That's it, that simple!
