I would like to achieve the following scaling scenario:

Intern Monitor - 175%

When connected to:
Extern Monitor 1 - 100%
Extern Monitor 2 - 110%

By using the settings app, you only can set Extern Monitor 2 to 100% or 150%. If I chose custom scaling, this value will also be used for Intern Monitor (and, probably, Extern Monitor 1).

Via registry I found out the following approaches:

  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] LogPixels = <custom scaling> Win8DpiScaling = 0 [1]

    Does not allow to distinguish between monitors.

  • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\PerMonitorSettings\<MonitorName>] DpiValue = <level>

    Unfortunately, level here does not allow any scaling value but one between -6 and 1 [2].

So, how can I achieve my desired scaling configuration described above? Thanks for help.

  • But it does do scaling, I had to use it before on a system that had 2 screens one was 4K the other was like 1080p and this app solved my issue and I had each screen set to a different scaling one was set to 100% the other at 140% – Zeek Apr 25 '18 at 19:06
  • I have tested Actual Multiple Monitor 8.13.2, nothing related with scale. – ayanamist Oct 18 '18 at 3:31
