- Windows 10 Version 1709 x64
- One 4K (27") and one 2K (27") monitor
- Nvidia 1050 TI
Feel free to ask for more information, if you need them.
Everything works fine if I don't use the Scaling option of Windows 10 (
Settings > System > Display > Scale and layout). However, if I don't use the scaling function, the content on the 4K monitor is very very small.
If I do use the scaling function as recommended (150% for the 4K monitor, 100% for the 2K one), it looks good in general. However, in some applications (Outlook, IntelliJ, ...) the content on the 2K monitor is veary blurry. While there might be a fix for the programs in specific (even though I wasn't able to do this), I'd like a general fix for this problem.
Furthermore, when I use the 4K monitor scaled by 150%, Windows doesn't seem to be quite able to measure the correct size. That means, if I'm at the top right corner of the 4K monitor, at which a maximized window is open, I don't click at the closing button, but slightly above it. This is not that much of a problem though, I could adapt to it.
What I've tried
- I tried running the programs (I tested it with IntelliJ) with
Override high DPI scaling behaviourset to
System (Enhanced), while using the recommended Windows scaling options
- The programs controls are as tiny as if I hadn't scaled the monitor at all
- I tried scaling both monitors by the same factor (125%)
- The controls on the 2K monitor are terribly huge
- The controls on the 2K monitor still look a little bit blurry, but not as much as before
- I tried this tool
- The same effect as with scaling both monitors by the same factor
- I tried setting my 2K monitor as primary monitor
- The contents on the 2K monitor are blurry
- I (obviously) tried logging out and restarting my computer for each option I tried
- I tried some specific solutions for IntelliJ (which didn't work), but I don't think they're relevant here
