I have a laptop and I am using a 42" flat screen as a second monitor. Everything is so huge on this 2nd monitor but I would like it to be scaled down to be about the same size as the laptop. I already tried changing the resolution and it didn't do anything.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A lot of this depends on the resolution options of your graphics card and you tv. If you have it at the max setting now, that is the best you are going to get. Check to see what resolution are they both set at and make sure they are compatible. Some tv’s will only go up to 1024 x 768 and some HD tv’s go 1920 by 1080 4K may go even higher..

    What OS is there ? OS is an important for reply. You said you tried to change resolution, but have you tried Advanced Scaling Settings? Have you updated the system recently?

    Whenever you go for update, it prompts you to buy it hasn't recently, what did I mean? What your system asks for buy? Is it asked for hardware? Have you added any other hardware with your system? Have you tried Live version Windows 8.1? Please link here and read this article carefully and you will get some good idea. https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2013/07/15/windows-8-1-dpi-scaling-enhancements/
