    Best way to set monitor scaling

    I have just bought the Acer Predator xb271hu monitor. It's resolution is much higher than the old one and its higher than my second monitor.

    I have tried using scaling to increase the text size as its a bit small for me. Unfortunately it changes the scaling on both monitors and since the second one has a lower resolution, it has increased the text by quite a bit and the text now looks jagged.

    What method can you guys recommend to only do one monitor.

    OK, sorry. I thought the whole idea of Option 1 in that tutorial was to allow you to select different scaling levels for individual monitors - 1 or 2 in your case. Are you not presented with 2 different displays to choose from so that you can choose which one you're changing the settings on, i.e., in the turorial: Option 1, Step 7, (sub-step) "2. Select display"?

Blurry 2nd Monitor when using different DPI scaling
My main monitor is 2560x1440 and my 2nd monitor is 1920x1080. When I set both to 100% or 125% scaling they both look fine. If I set my main monitor to 125% and my 2nd monitor to 100% the 2nd monitor is blurry. Is anyone else having this problem?...
