While GTK3 on Linux with both X.Org/Wayland has supported HiDPI displays for a long while, only with the latest GTK4 development code should there be usable HiDPI support for those using this tool-kit on Microsoft Windows.

With the latest GTK Git code is finally the enabling of HiDPI support on Windows. This enables proper window and font scaling of GTK+ on Windows.

See the aforementioned link if you are interested in the technical details and limitations of this Windows HiDPI support for the toolkit.
