  1. automatic change of the display scale when disconnected from docking station


    Hello Everyone, I use two monitors. the original one of the laptop and an additional external monitor extending displays. I use a docking station when I am working which allows me to use the two monitors. Sometimes I use the laptop on its own without the additional screen. When I am connected to the two screens, I want to have the scale at 150%; but when I disconnect the docking station I want the scale to change automatically to 125%; is that possible?

    :)

  2. Screen snipping doesn't work on USBC docking station?

    Hi, I’m Nicole, I’ll be happy to help you out today.

    This issue is likely due to a compatibility problem between the USBC docking station and Windows 11. Changing the display scaling percentage on either monitor can cause changes in the screen resolution and aspect ratio, which can affect how screen snipping works. To resolve the issue, you can try the following steps:

    Check for updates for the USBC docking station and the graphics drivers on the laptop.

    Connect the secondary monitor through HDMI instead of USBC to see if the issue still persists.

    Try a different USBC docking station, if possible.

    If none of the above steps work, you may need to use the screen snipping tool at a display scaling of 100% on either the laptop or the secondary monitor.

    Regards.

  3. Surface pro 4 Dock Scaling problems

    Scaling issues with Apps on Surface 4+docking station+ external monitors:

    I have 2 monitors connected through the Surface Pro 4 docking station, and if I extend to Monitor 2 and Monitor 3 - I get same problem:

    Skype for business icons and app menu are huge, taking up all the screen space

    Power Point is useless because again the menu items are huge

    Internet Explorer are the same - huge menu

    It does not happen with OneNote, Word is ok, Excel ok. I think its those programs too because nothing I do with the monitors will change that.

    Help!! automatic change of the display scale when disconnected from docking station :(

    Custom Display Scaling on Multiple Monitors w/ Dock

    Hello,

    I've encountered the world's most infuriating problem for which I do not believe there is a solution. I recently purchased an HP ZBook 14u w/ it's associated thunderbolt dock. I have two 24" 4K displays connected to the dock. For the monitors, under scale
    and layout I've set scaling to 225% (which IS listed under available pre-set scaling options) and they look fantastic. For the laptop screen however, the recommended setting is 300% (too big) with the setting below that being 250% (too small). Setting a custom
    scale of 275% is perfect. The problem is, if I set custom scaling on the laptop screen, and then plug it into the dock, it carries over to the two monitors (changing them to 275%) making them too big. It seems there is no way to set custom scaling for an individual
    display. It also seems that there is no way to add a certain scale percentage (in this case 275%) to the list of available options within the settings on the laptop screen without setting a custom number.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? Are there any drivers, registry tweaks or custom apps that can allow me to set custom scaling for an individual screen and not have it carry over to all the displays when I connect the laptop to the dock?
