    Hi,Running W10 1709 64-bit, and a multi-monitor setup as pictured in screenshot from display manager:2x27" 2560x1440 Monitors "3" and "4"1x22" 1680x1050 Monitor "2"and built-in laptop display:15.6" 1920x1080 Monitor "1"My problem is that my monitor manager is aware of the 4 monitors and their resolution, but not of the sizes. That is - in reality, monitor "2" is bigger than monitor "1" and the scaling between monitors is off. Dragging a window from one monitor to another doesn't work very well as the placement is very different from what Windows thinks.Scaling monitors to other than 100%

    Multi-monitor set up with different sizes and resolutions?

    Hi,

    Running W10 1709 64-bit, and a multi-monitor setup as pictured in screenshot from display manager:

    2x27" 2560x1440 (Monitors "3" and "4")

    1x22" 1680x1050 (Monitor "2")

    and built-in laptop display:

    15.6" 1920x1080 (Monitor "1")

    My problem is that my monitor manager is aware of the 4 monitors and their resolution, but not of the sizes. That is - in reality, monitor "2" is bigger than monitor "1" and the scaling between monitors is off. Dragging a window from one monitor to another
    doesn't work very well as the placement is very different from what Windows thinks.

    Scaling monitors to other than 100% doesn't solve my problem - Windows is still not aware of the difference in sizes. Any input is welcome.

    Thanks,

    Multi-monitor set up with different sizes and resolutions?

    Hi Nikhar,

    Thanks, I am clearly aware of that the monitor manager sizes monitors according to resolution. What I need is an option
    not to do so. When moving the cursor through different monitors, or sizing a window over several monitors, it doesn't make sense.

    Does such an option exist?

    Thanks,

    Henrik.

    Multi-monitor set up with different sizes and resolutions?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you see a different setup of monitors in the multiple displays section.



    I would like to inform that the multiple display section will show the monitor setup as per the screen resolution you are using instead of the actual size of the monitors.



    Since, you are using a screen resolution 1920 X 1080 for
    Monitor 1 and 1680 X 1050 for Monitor 2 that is the reason you see a size difference in the multiple display section.



    Let us know if you need any further assistance, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare
