    Multiple displays


    I have a HP Elite laptop which is connected to a HP Docking station which powers two 23" monitors, So I have the 2 monitors and the laptop all displaying as an extended desktop with Windows 10 Enterprise. Due to the laptop resolution I would like to change the screen resolution of the laptop screen only (not the two 23" screens) or increase the size of the overall size of those apps that I have open on the laptop screen. I don not normally move anything on to the laptop screen (once I have everything setup and open), just have a couple of apps open on the laptop screen, my main work is done of the two 23" screens.

    Anybody got any suggestions?

    :)
