PC multiple monitor display

Hey!

 

I know that when using multiple monitors, you can set each individual monitor to a different resolution, but is there a way to set the display size of the text (under control panel > appearance and personalization > display) to a different size for each monitor? I've been told that it is not possible. Are there any ways around this? 

 

 

Thanks!

I'm currently running Windows 7. 

 

Good to know that Windows 10 can achieve that though.

Yes, you most certainly can set independent display resolutions of a multiple monitor setup in Win 7.

I'm no computer expert, but I don't think that you can set different font size on 2 different monitors using the same video card.

Any changes to font size will affect both monitors when using a single video card output.

I hope @Computers_Mike can confirm this .

Can we interest you in a 2nd. computer @BBYTerence ? Smiley Wink

Hey team,

For Windows 7 as far as I know you cannot set individual text sizes. As that is system controlled, only the resolution can be changed independently.

Okay... yes, text size on Win 7 a system-wide setting and cannot be changed.  You'll need to upgrade to Win 10.
