    windows 8.1 scaling issues with 4 k display


    got a 15 inch 4 k display on my laptop and im having some issues with some programs. for example, the steam login screen is extremely small, same with battle.net client login screen. ive turned off dpi for both, if it would be on, id have to deal with them being too big and blurry. anyone know what to do here ?

    thanks in advance

    Seems like Windows 8.1 doesn't have support with 4K monitors yet.
    Wait until Windows 10, or else research it.
    Hope it helps!

So I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on my Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200 laptop. I was previously running Windows 8, 64 bit and primarily just using the Desktop mode. I immediately noticed that the 1920x1080 resolution on Windows 8.1 made everything 10-15% smaller. Ultimately I decided to refresh back to...
I use Windows 8 on a rMBP, but frequently use an external monitor that's 1080p. Since it scales 200% for the HiDPI of the rMBP, it's way too big on the external. Is there a way I can have it scale only the internal monitor, and leave the external one at 100%?
