Customer Question

I have a surface pro 4 with 3 monitors hooked up . the three monitors look good as far as display. I have all extended. I'm wanting my surface 4 to have larger title / address bar etc so I can see it. I now several ways to change it but it seems it always affects the monitors that are ok. I basically don't have perfectect vision but would love for surface to be able to be read easily with some one with 20/40 vision in both eyes. I would also like to see if you agree with the setting I have on the two verticle monitors ASUS PB298Q and the Samsung BN68. I am able to let someone remote access. I also want to know how to change display correctly when 4 monotors are extended

Hi Welcome to JustAnswer

Let me know whenever you are available for screen share. I will remotely connect to your machine and do this for you.

If you're using more than one monitor, you can identify the monitors that are plugged in, detect another monitor, change the screen orientation, choose what's displayed on each monitor, and choose which one is the main display.

Identify your monitors

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
  2. Tap or click PC and devices, then tap or click Display.
  3. Tap or click Identify.

Detect another monitor

If another monitor is plugged into your PC but Windows didn't detect it automatically, you can detect it manually in PC settings.

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
  2. Tap or click PC and devices, then tap or click Display.
  3. Tap or click Detect.

Change the screen orientation

    (If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
