Monitor Scaling Problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys! How you been? So there's this problem that I've had for quite a while now. My desktop icons keep switching places every time I play a game or use software that goes into fullscreen. I have a 4K display and most of the games that I play are in 1080p. Let's say I Alt Tab, when I go to my desktop, all of the desktop icons are jumbled and I have to put them into their places everytime. What seems to be the problem?

This may be one of those “is this a bug or a feature?” Issues.

You keep switching monitor resolutions from 4k to 1080p and back, so every time you do it windows rearranges the icons.  You’d need some kind of secondary software to remember where your icons are in 4k I think.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

I use 4k monitors and play at 4k,1440p and test at 1080p.

My icons don't move.

 

I play all none 4k games at full screen but I do go out of them to put "prints screens" into photoshop. 

I use a LG OLED TV and a 32" LG VA monitor.

 

I did have the issue when I used Windows 7 and fixed it by installing a monitor driver.
