I have three screens connected:

  • Two 1920x1200 screens that I do not want DPI scaled.
  • 1 4K screen that I do want to scale.

Currently, if I set a 1920x1200 screen to be my "main" display, and then set the scaling to the recommended setting, the 1920's are fine, the 4K is blurry (this also has a side effect of putting the clock, etc on a 1920 screen, which is not in the middle).

If I do the inverse, the 4K is fine, the 1920's are blurry on apps that are DPI aware (Chrome looks fine - Explorer, Outlook, etc. do not).

Is there a way to configure this via Windows or with a third party tool?

Windows will automatically choose the zoom level for each monitor based on its dpi value, so don't select "let me choose one scaling level for all displays" superuser.com/questions/629376/… –  Lưu Vĩnh Phúc Jun 19 '14 at 2:53
    
@Lưu Vĩnh Phúc - I haven't selected that option "Let me choose one scaling level for all of my displays" is not selected. –  DaRKoN_ Jun 19 '14 at 4:25
    
Agree that option doesn't work the way t's supposed to. Was hoping to find a 3rd party tool to manage this until MS fix it up. –  Matt G Sep 5 '14 at 20:10
    
I have a similar problem, and suspect it is down to poorly set up monitor 'drivers'. –  Mark Booth Oct 3 '14 at 18:56
