Windows 10: Which DPI size is your monitor running on?
Using 200 percent on my Surface Pro 4 @ 2786x1824. Both are the recommended settings for the device.
I have to run windows 10 in high contrast themes. All the type in normal themes
for me is small and washed out, on everything no matter what I set.
I'm using the classic theme I downloaded from the forum.
Never had this issue with previous window versions.
It's kind of unfriendly for older people with vision issues.
I cant use the DPI setting as it messes up some programs I use, so I've
raised my resolution up a bit.
You mean lower it? To make items larger without messing the DPI values.
The whole purpose of DPI settings in this case is to counteract the high resolution drawbacks (small to read/see items). Increasing the resolution alone would not help: some of those programs will look even smaller.
It's true that programs may look messy but you can try the "disable dpi compatibility" in that case.
It may not always help though.
Helped for me in some programs, got rid of blurry text. Using recommended 125% at 2560 x 1440 .
I will give that a try, thanks much.
After looking at this I don't this same setting in Window 10. My scale increments are 25%....
So 100% to 125% is my only choice and that is way to large.
100% works just fine for me.
I envy all you people with good eyes. At 100% I wouldn't see a thing.
See first post:
Go to Control Panel - Display
(Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display)
Click on "set a custom scaling level" -> then it will give you the ruler options. Instead of using the provided drop down, type in your value. For instance I could pick 108%, sign out and back in to test.
Also, dragging the ruler left-right works:

I went to SSDs on all of my computers some time back, but I still use WD RE4s and 2.5 inch WD Black HDDs for a variety of backup tasks and for storage in which the data will not be accessed for a period longer than is ideal to use a non-powered SSD...
I was checking my system configuration and happened across this weird one!
Note the spelling:
"Monitor Virutal Wlan Service" - "Virutal" rather than "Virtual" but either way, I can see no reference to such a process on the net.
So today I started my computer up and only 1 of my 3 monitors working. Nvidia control panel claimed my gpu could only support 1 monitor which was false. What fixed it for me was I simply unplugged the 3 displayport cables for my 3 monitors and...
For some reason I can't seem to figure out I can not change the size of the screen on my monitor. I have tried everything in personalization and display settings. Nothing is working. I have looked online and can not find answers there either. If...
