AF Designer / GUI: Alignment of the menus on Windows 7 / 10

Recommended Posts

Hello experts, 😉

i have installed Affinity Designer on my Windows 10 laptop today. On my Windows 7 computer I had installed it a few days ago.
Now I notice that the pop-up menus on both computers are aligned differently.

On the Windows 7 computer the menus are left-aligned and on the Windows 10 computer they are right-aligned.
Is this a setting in Windows or can it be set somewhere in Affinity? The behavior on the Windows 7 computer tells me more.

Thanks for hints.

Stay healthy and many greetings

Btw: how I can place an image in my post instead of only attaching it to the post?

I found a solution. It's a Windows setting.

Ironically, it's a setting for Windows tablet mode, but I run Windows on a laptop and a desktop. So I'm not quite sure why Windows 10 defaults to "right-handed" and Windows 7 defaults to "left-handed".
