Windows 10: Windows 10 4k monitor question

    Windows 10 4k monitor question

    Not sure where to post this but i have a question maybe someone can shed some light on. I have the asus pb287Q which is a 4k monitor, and i am using Windows 10 pro currently. I have it scaled to 150% so does this mean my monitor is no longer "4k" resolution? What about when i open google chrome and watch youtube videos does this mean they are no longer 4k resolution? What about gaming also?

    Hopefully my questions made sense i tried to research around and see if i could find anything but didn't know how to explain my questions. Any info is appreciated thanks.

    Hello,lm no expert but a few minutes reading about scaling ,I don't think it affects the4k
    Check link, go to text below the 6th image ,it states that scaling to 150will not affect video

    Good article, i was just reading it. Here is another

    I have 2k monitor but have not scaled using the recommended 125%, i do find some software to be a bit blurry but found by right clicking the shortcut and selecting properties on these particular programs and in the Compatibility Tab check Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings it's clearer and sharper but becomes smaller of course.

    I then would have to increase text size which in turn affects everything else in windows or try scaling. Otherwise i have selected large icons for the desktop.

    I always thought scaling higher would make me loose more of what can fit on a screen compared to 1080p resolution monitor, as 2K & 4K can fit more on screen.
    Example of what i meant.
