- You have a Windows 8.1-based computer that has multiple display monitors in an extended configuration.
- These monitors use different DPI scaling levels.
- The Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays check box is not selected in the Display item in Control Panel.
When you move application windows from one monitor to the other, the window is resized correctly to reflect the scaling factor of each display. However, desktop icons and the taskbar icons are not scaled independently for each display. They are scaled to match the DPI scaling of the display that is selected as the primary display monitor. Therefore, they appear larger or smaller than usual on any secondary display monitors.
If you reduce the display scaling, or you use the Display item in Control Panel to select a different monitor as the primary display monitor (by using the Make this my main display check box), the taskbar icons are reduced correctly. However, the taskbar itself remains larger unexpectedly.
This issue is a known design limitation in Windows 8.1. The taskbar and desktop items are not independently scaled for each monitor when the monitors use different DPI scaling settings.
Cause of issue 2
This is a known problem in Windows 8.1.
