I bought a 32" 4k display and when I use the 4k resolution on it, everything is too small. This is why I use something in between 2k and 4k, but that resolution is not native apparently, and Launchpad is laggy when using it.

If I swipe left to go to the next page of the Launchpad, the sliding animation is choppy. Is there a way to fix this?

I am using a 2018 Mac mini running macOS Mojave 10.14.5.

  • What is the version of macOS Mojave that you are running. What is the make and model of the Mac that you are using? – Nimesh Neema Jul 6 '19 at 13:46

  • It would help to know some basic specs of your Mini: Which type of CPU does it have — i3, i5, or i7? And how much system RAM is installed? Do you have only the one display attached? If so, exactly how is the display attached to the Mini — which port on the Mini, which port on the display, and what kind of cable? Precisely what resolution setting have you chosen in the "Displays" panel of System Preferences? (If you have more than one display attached, please provide this info for each display.) – jdmc Sep 23 '19 at 20:30
  • @jdmc I have a 6 core i5. 32 gigs of RAM. 1 display attached. I tried all kinds of ports, HDMI, thunderbolt 3, displayport (usb-c to dp cable). I have just 1 32 inch 4k display. It doesn't matter what resolution I choose, if it isn't native, it lags. So, it works fine with 1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 (those are non scaled native resolutions). But if I choose 3008x1692 or 3360x1890, it lags, because it needs to scale things. Unfortunately, I can't use native resolutions, because everything is either too small or too large for me. – hey_you Sep 24 '19 at 5:12
  • At this point I've disabled launchpad animations through terminal altogether, so it's okay. But safari still lags, when you double click a youtube video to enter full screen, for example. That's why I've been using chrome, which works just fine. So, I'm okay overall, but sucks that this can't be fixed. – hey_you Sep 24 '19 at 5:13
