Multi Display - IE-Resolution


New Member
Hello, hope anyone can help me with my Display Resolution Problem.

I have a Surface pro 4 with 2 external Display connected by using the Microsoft Docking Station with 2 Mini DP Port.

Surface Display: 2736 x 1824
LG Ultra-Wide: 2560 x 1080
Samsung Curve: 1920 x 1080

Now my Problem:
If I open Internet Explorer 11 and also the "snippingTool" on Surface screen, It has a good size of Menue and Link Bar on the top of the window, but if I open the Programm on external Screen or if I slide it from Surface Screen to an external Screen the size of menua Bar is very very large.

If I put e.g. Excel or Outlook from Surface Screen to external Display then I see that the size of the Menue Bar is chanching in the Moment when it slide from one to an other Display.

So, the size Problem is not a General Problem, it depends on Software ... but IE11 and Snipping Tool are Microsoft products.

I hope I explained good enaught (I'm german and not so good in english language) so that I can get help from you...

Snipping Tool is an older program (works great) but still uses older style scaling, IE still has some legacy code as well, does Edge behave the same?

I just try edge (I did not know this browser before)
Edge is working fine, so it seems to be a Problem with older Programms
