I am using a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga laptop with a 3820x2160 14" screen. I run Fedora 34 with KDE Plasma and the UI scaled to 200%; GNOME and other DEs have similar functionality to scale the UI. However the GRUB screen is not scaled in this way. As a result, any text and interactive UI elements are almost unreadably small. See the attached screen screenshot for an example.

The grub2 version is 2.06.

I originally filed this issue on Fedora's bug tracker (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1964673), but they said it was an upstream issue, so I am filing this bug here.

I did not have this issue on openSUSE Tumbleweed because the UI is different there; perhaps they override the default theme to have larger text.
