Labels for icons are scalled up for LowDPI display.

Hi,

I read about support of HiDPI and LoDPI displays and how it works.

My setup is as follow:

  • Primary screen: 3840x2160 in 15,6" (scale 200%)
  • Secondary screen: 1920x1200 in 24" (scale 100%)

Most applications look fine. Problem what I found is that Windows itself has has some inconsistency when it's displaying a tip with name for an application in task bar. Like in attached image:

Where you can see that 'Skype' label is huge. (On the screen you can notice strange window with ConEmu program, it's not DPI aware hence it looks funny.)

Strange is that a label over windows search (first icon) has a normal size.

How I change settings so that labels of the icons like Skype in my case become normal?

An additional observation is that, when I change scaling of first (primary) display from 200% to 100% then after log-in every label on display 2 has a right size.

I cannot stay with this settings, because then primary screen is unreadable.

--- Update

Icons are equally sized up on the secondary screen

Can somebody confirm if this is a buggy behavior in Windows 10, or I do have something very wrong in my configuration.

Cheers,

Piotr

When I changed in settings that my attached monitor (low dpi) is a primary monitor then this situation has been mirrored.

You can see it over here:

- LowDPI: Primary monitor is set to 100% and everything looks fine on it.

- HighDPI: Secondary monitor (from laptop) is set to 200%, desktop icons and labels are scaled down.

It looks like DPI scale per monitor doesn't work fully in my case somehow, although when I move window between monitors then every application gets readjusted.
