Hi all,

Using Surface Book2 with Surface Dock
I have 2 External Monitors, both are Dell P2419H.

Some Windows seem very large on the external monitors.
I have both set at 1920 x 1080

Some program seem worse than others
• Power Query in Excel
• Power BI
• Greenshot

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Look at you display properties under Settings-System-Display and select your external monitors and look at the DPI scaling - I would recommend that they be set to 100% with 1080 monitors.

Thanks Jeff,

They are both set at 100%.
The problem only occurs sometimes and seems to be specific to some applications or dialog boxes.
It could just be that these are the applications I use the most other than Firefox which does not suffer from the same issue.

Thanks,

Are these older applications? Some older application struggle on High DPI screens (like the Surface), you can attempt running the Application Troubleshooter Settings - Update and Security - Troubleshoot - Other Troubleshooters and select the one for Application Compatibility.
