    Custom Display Scaling for multi monitor setup?


    Just picked up an HP Omen 27i monitor - IPS - 2560x1440 - 165Hz) to use as my main monitor. I'm using my previous monitor (Asus VG248 - TN - 1920x1080 - 144Hz) as my second monitor.

    Is there any way to set the Custom scaling option in Windows for my HP Omen (first monitor) to 120 and keep my Asus VG248 (second monitor) to 100? If I do that the custom scaling spans across both monitors. However if I set the scaling to an option in the drop-down box (125%, 150%,175%, 200%, 225%) it works properly.

    I'd like to set a lesser value than 125 for the HP Omen since that value is too large for my liking.

    If you have a two monitor setup then on this particular window you captured there should be a box on top that looks like this one :

    Clicking one of the monitors allows you to edit Scale & Layout for which independently .

    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?
