    Is this possible by now? In windows10 you have to use custom scaling, because with the regular scaling option, basic stuff like properties of a file are blurry. The problem is that custom scaling, unlike normal scaling, is used for all monitors which leads to having a scaling on my second monitor where i dont want scaling.

    Edit: Win10 2004, Monitor1 27" 1440p(want 125% scaling), Monitor2 24" 1080p(want 100% scaling)

  2. 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?

    Custom display scaling per monitor

    Custom Display Scaling for multi monitor setup?

    Thanks for the reply. However that does not work if you choose custom scaling. The custom scaling will apply to all monitors. Only the preset options of (100,125, 150, 175, 200, 225) work correctly per monitor. I've been doing some research and it seems to be an issue for many people.

    It even says this in the Advanced scaling settings. I was hoping for some kind of workaround.
