Issue with display of icon size
I attached my laptop to a 40" 1080p TV with an HDMI cable. I have a problem with the display.
With some trial and error I succeeded to duplicate the problem at will. The setting on the laptop is to duplicate the laptop screen on an external display.
When I start the MS program - (while the HDMI cable is disconnected from the TV) - the icons are normal size on the laptop. I then connect the HDMI cable and all is well. The icons are normal size on both laptop and TV
When I open MS program while the HDMI cable is already connected to the TV the icons are tiny on both the laptop and the TV. Please see attached pix.
If I were to buy a 4K TV would I still have that problem?
If I were to buy a 4K computer monitor, would I still have that problem?
Is there really a difference between, (and if so what is it), an external computer monitor and using a TV as an external monitor if both support 4K resolution.
Thank you in advance for your help.
