    How do I fix burry fonts or very small fonts


    When I connect to an external monitor (LG 34 inch Ultra via HDMI), my laptop folder fonts (only when attaching a file to email, uploading files etc.) are VERY small. To get them the right size, I have to make the laptop the main monitor and that makes the external monitors font blurry AND pointer etc. unusable big...


    My settings:


    extended desktop
    laptop = 3840x2160 (this is the recommended setting)


    External = 2560x1080 (recommended)


    Any ideas on how to fix?

    Have you tried changing the scaling under Settings - Display?

    I have. it makes all fonts/icons etc. larger yet the file folders and desktop icons stay tiny and illegible.

    For the files that would be when you right click it will give you the option to go size and pick large or something else. Other than that I am not sure what else to say to do.

    That does make the icons bigger but unfortunately, the font is still very, very small and doesn't change. Interestingly, when I connect 2 monitors, I don't have the problem. It's only when I use the laptop monitor and connect 1 external (LG ultra).

    Looks like an LG ultra-specific problem. Any LG monitor management app available on their website?
