Tips: Play with Multi-Monitor Setup in Windows 10

Windows 10 provides an opportunity for users to play with many things, including the monitor. This time we'll show you how to tweak the setup with multiple monitors (read: multi-monitor). This will be very useful for users who run more than one 4K monitor at a time.

The key is in the DPI settings. Just like Windows 8.1, Windows 10 also comes with a DPI (dots per inch) setting option. With this system, users can apply a DPI scale on each monitor on a percentage basis.

The system is present in the form of tools (tool) that will provide granular control underarm users using multiple monitors with various variations of resolution. Compared to applying a single DPI application to all your monitors (meaning all monitors have the same DPI number), the way that the system offers is certainly more interesting. That way, you can avoid the results that even make the display of visual objects on the monitor look bad.

Start playing with settings per monitor

To get started, right-click on an empty space on your desktop and select Display Settings in the context of the menu that appears afterwards. Alternatively, you can do this by pointing the menu at Start >> Settings >> System >> Display.

At that point, you've reached half way. There should be a layout showing the setup of the monitor you are using. For this case we used a laptop and an external monitor, each labeled 1 and 2.

Below the layout you will see a slider saying Change the size of text, apps, and other items 100%. We recommend you use the setting. This is the point where you can start applying a DPI scale, but before you have to check which monitor is being highlighted.

In our case, the laptop monitor is highlighted in red. We did not change any scale for our laptop monitor, because the resolution of 1366 x 768 is very good and good. Larger monitors, with 1080p resolution, will certainly look better when the DPI scale is reduced.

What we do is click on the second monitor (with 1080p resolution) as seen in the Settings section, and then start shifting the Change slider ... In our place, the 1080p monitor used can be changed by scale, from 125, 150 and 175 percent. While the laptop with a resolution of 1366 x 768 can be changed settingannya at 125 percent. Different numbers may be obtained if you apply the same way we do.

Once you feel fit with the DPI scale presentation shown above the screen, press the Apply option and the selected monitor will change its scale while the other monitor remains. You'll then receive a warning notifying you that you need to sign-in and then sign-out again from Windows to ensure that the app over the monitor looks good. Obey the command, lest everything run smoothly.

After Sign-In returns, you'll see some apps adjust to the new resolution, while others look the same as before. If you find the apps look the same as before, then we suspect this is more due to apps developers who actually immerse visual assets with low DPI.

Perhaps using a per-monitor scale is not the perfect solution for those of you who are used to multi-monitor, but at least the Windows taskbar will become easier to see and the Windows operating system will look good visually.
