How to Fix Scaling Issues for High-DPI Devices In Windows 11/10

Impression scaling issues are surprisingly complex. Microsoft has been trying to improve impression share for a long time. They have come a long way in creating the best scaling experience for users.

Different versions of Windows have different extension capabilities and limitations. Not to mention older monitors tend to have more problems connecting to modern PCs. In the same way, your old PC may not display proper graphics on modern high-end monitors.

What causes display scaling problems in Windows?

Windows 10 has a known built-in display scaling issue with Full HD and Ultra HD devices. This becomes problematic, especially when used with an external monitor. Following are some causes of display scaling in Windows 10:

  • Move application windows between monitors that are using different screen resolutions.
  • Use docked and non-docked profiles separately on Windows. This includes a detachable display, dock, and tablet mode.
  • Use a Remote Desktop session and then log in directly afterwards using the same credentials. This happens mainly when the user does not log out of the remote desktop session first.
  • Combine a high-resolution display with an older monitor that does not support High Definition displays.
