    So I just got a new monitor and I'm using my old one as a second monitor. It's portrait, 1080p, and 24 inches while my new monitor is landscape, 4k, and 27 inches. In display settings, the portrait monitor is somehow shorter than the landscape monitor. I was wondering if there was any way that I could up the size of my portrait monitor in display settings so it's taller than the landscape monitor like it is in real life

    this is what it looks like if that helps

  2. Display Resolution for two monitor have different settings

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The display resolution depends on the monitors that you have plugged into your computer. The display resolution modes will vary with each display based on the video card device, monitor size, video driver, and monitor driver.
    By default, Windows chooses the best display settings for your PC based on your monitor, so it is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor.

    To have better clarity on the issue, let us know the model numbers of your monitors, so that we can provide you the exact display resolution which is recommended to your monitors.

    Meanwhile, try the below methods and see if this helps.

    Changing the Display Resolution from Settings.

    Step 1: Right Click on an empty space on the desktop and click on
    Display Settings.

    Step 2: In the
    Display Settings window, scroll down and click on 'Advanced display settings' option under
    Multiple displays.

    Step 3: Then, click on
    Display adapter properties for Display 1, Display 2, or
    Display 3; whichever monitor you want to change the resolution for.

    Step 4: Once the Display properties pops-up, click on 'List All Modes' option.

    Step 5: Select a display mode that you want for the selected display and click on
    OK.

    Step 6: Then, click on
    Apply and OK for the changes to take effect.

    If these steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver by opening
    Device Manager, right-click on the monitor drivers, and select
    Uninstall. Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the drivers.

    Hope it helps.

    External monitor display settings

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues with the display scaling on your external displays. We will certainly look into this for you.

    As you are using Vizio TV, you may have to try using custom resolution settings if the in-built settings do not provide the required settings.

    For better clarity, please let us know:

    • What is the version of Windows 10 that is currently installed on your computer? You can click on Search and type
      winver.
    • Are you aware of any recent changes to the system, such as updates, after which you are facing this issue?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to check the steps mentioned in the Workaround section in

    Windows scaling issues for high-DPI devices


    I would also suggest you to check the Display drivers. Please refer
