    Scaling factors for multiple displays won't work

    I have a UHD display on Win10 laptop and my second display is an HP w2048h monitor running at 1920x1200. My problem is that the second monitor will not display as well as it used to, everything is 50% larger than it should be, even though it is set at its highest resolution and a scaling factor of 100%. The laptop shows things very small, and the auxiliary monitor shows everything expanded. No changes that I make to the settings will optimize them both.

    The last scaling factor setting applied to either display is applied to both displays. Is there any way to set them up individually?
