AFAIK, font/dpi settings are universal and can't be different for each display.

I can do it if the second screen has a VM full screened, but the "full screen" is reduced in size to the res I selected. Large black borders.

Yes. A virtual second physical PC. And the resolution trick is less than usable (now that I have been trying it).

display/monitor 1024768 display size
the display/monitor uses the generic driver for display and it is 1024768 or 800x600 but it looks very odd it should be bigger because my screen is bigger. I have a acer monitor but is there something I can download to fix the display size?
