Windows 7: change scaling size on one montior only

change scaling size on one montior only

Hi all,

I have a piece of software that I need to run on a dedicated monitor, if the windows display size is set to anything other than smaller 100% then the graphics are all cut off and broken, they software dev state you must use this setting.

Well problem is, using this setting makes the text on my other displays too small to see, I have 4 monitors of varying sizes, I need 125% on them to see clearly as some are not right in front of me, is there any workaround for this?

I believe it may be possible in Windows 10 but I don't want to go down that path just for this!

Haven't had this particular problem myself, but as a guess I would start by looking into the controls for your video card. My AMD graphics control panel has a lot of individual settings for each monitor. (I have three monitors.) I woukld guess that nVidia cards are the same.

Failing that, check out DisplayFusion.
