  1. Dual displays Same size different resolutions


    I have a 1440p monitor and a 1080p monitor. They are both 27' and when i go to customize display settings they show up as different sizes. which makes things appear weird when going across the two monitors. Windows 10 thinks the 1080 is smaller. So i was hoping there was a setting somewhere you can change so when things go across screens they aren't broken up weird. When in all reality they are the same size, just the pixel count is different

    :)

  2. Dual monitors with different DPI (different resolution but same physical size)

    Hi,

    I have dual monitor setup. Two monitors are the same size, but very different in resolution. To be precise, display 1 is 1440x900 (100% scale) and display 2 is 2880x1800 retina (200% scale). So they are the same size, but first display is twice as high in
    DPI as the second one.

    Because of that, when I move my mouse pointer from display 1 to display 2, it's "stuck" on the edge until I move it to the bottom (depends on the layout).

    Ability to change the "scale" of every individual monitor on the layout (without affecting it's resolution or element/font size) solves the problem:

    Is there any other way to solve it? If no, can this feature be added to Windows 10?

    Desctop got 2/3 of the normal size

    Hello,

    This should be resolved by updating the screen resolution for your display. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • Open Start , select Settings > System > Display.
    • Under Scale and layout, check the setting under Change the size of text, apps, and other items. We suggest you use the percentage marked "(Recommended)."
    • If that doesn't solve your problem, under Resolution, select a new value. We suggest you stick with the resolution marked "(Recommended)."

    Let me know how it goes.
