Solution to mouse hitbox/ screen zoom issues

Steps to reproduce

I've seen a lot of Issues where people cannot click properly in game while in full screen because mouse detection is way off or the screen in zoomed in too far. I may have a solution.

Describe your issue

Steps to Fixing these problems: For Windows 7 64bit

1: Locate the dontstarve_steam.exe file in your steam folder

---(usually "Program Files (x86), steam, steamapps, common, dont_starve, bin)

2: Right click dontstarve_steam.exe and click on compatibility.

3: Click the check (so it appears) next to" Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"

---(optional: click the box for "Run this program as an administrator")

4: Click "Apply"

5: Start up don't starve and make sure your refresh rate matches what your monitor can support.

6: Enjoy! (hopefully)

Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong location. But I figured it would get exposure here.
