How to Turn on Display Scaling in Windows 10


How to Turn on Display Scaling in Windows 10

To adjust Windows 10 display scaling requires that you choose a scaling percentage. Here's how.

  1. 1. Go to the Windows Start Menu.

    The Start button in Windows 10
  2. 2. Choose Settings.

    The Windows 10 Start menu with Settings highlighted
  3. 3. Select System.

    The System heading in Windows 10 settings
  4. 4. Select Display.

    The Display tab of System settings
  5. 5. Look for the Change the size of text, apps, and other items under Scale and layout. Select an option, such as 125% or 150%. Displayed items will appear larger as the scaling increases.

    The "Change the size of text, etc." menu
  6. 6. Your display will re-size.

How to Adjust Scaling for Multiple Displays or Custom Sizes

You can adjust display scaling for your main display and connected displays. Place your cursor and select the rectangle for the display you want to scale, such as display 1 or display 2, etc. You can adjust scaling for each display separately.

Select Advanced scaling settings to adjust scaling from the standard 100% to as much as 500%. In this setting screen, you may manually enter a custom scaling size. However, different scaling settings will work better on different displays. In some cases, you may see blurry characters, words that are cut off, or text too large or small for a specific space. Older programs, in particular, may not fully support modern Windows 10 display scaling features.

The Advanced scaling settings also give you access to an additional setting that will ”Let Windows try to fix apps so they’re not blurry.” However, this adjustment only applies to your main display, not any external displays.
