Default Solved - New display monitor with 2560 x 1440 display

Will existing themes work with this resolution or will themes need modification?

They all work fine.

My 1440p display is a 27 inch model. Slightly smaller pixels than my old 24 inch 1920x1200 display, but it's fine. The default theme is the most flexible with different sizes.

The resolution alone doesn't really make any difference to a theme.

The combination of resolution and screen size (the pixel size) governs how big or small things will look.

I work 2560x1440 on a 27" screen at about 1m distance which works fine for me....but things are a bit smaller than my previous 1920x1080 on 24"

You can compare pixel sizes to get an idea if things will look bigger, smaller or similar to your current setup.

I have a couple of 2560x1080 screens. The only difference with a 2560x1440 screen is that you will have more vertical screen real estate than I have with the single 21:9 screen.
For productivity extra height can be useful - less scrolling.

The same logic applies to 4k. A 4k screen can be used to reduce the amount of vertical and horizontal scrolling to a minimum as it is like having four 1080p panels without any bezels.

The reason people want 4k themes is to use that extra pixel density for a smoother image (less granulated, the pixel density allows for extra detail) rather than more screen real estate.

If you have a small 4k screen a normal GUI can look ridiculously tiny. Most 2560x1440 screens won't have this issue, unless it is particularly small, and viewed from a greater than normal distance.
