Epic Games Launcher black screen

I thought I'd post this in case it helps someone with the Epic Games launcher program. Searching online didn't come back with any definite help.

I installed Fortnite on a couple of Windows 8.1 PCs and had the same problem on both - the Epic launcher started up but just showed a mainly black screen; the log-in fields weren't visible.

Turns out this happens if you have Windows set to enlarge icons etc., the Epic launcher just shows black.

I changed mine via Control Panel, Display, Change the size of all items <- set this all the way to 'smaller'.

I didn't need to log off and back on again, but I did need to re-launch the Epic launcher.

Then I could see the Epic launcher screen properly. This worked on a high-DPI laptop and my 1080p HTPC.
