Question Start menu and other program resolutions/scaling change when playing games

Hello,

I got this weird problem - so basically my main monitor is 2k 60fps but I also have a second one that's a 1k 60fps monitor (not sure if this is relevant since I leave my second monitor off while gaming), and when I play a game (I don't think this happens with all games), whether I either alt-tab out of the game or just quit, the resolution, or perhaps scaling, of the start menu and some software such as Uplay, Skype and Discord (doesn't seem to happen with Steam) appears to be lower than the actual resolution/scaling of my screen and becomes tiny to read. Then I have to go into the task manager and restart explorer to fix this.

When the problem occurs:

How it should be:

Hello

Please correct me if I misunderstood the issue correctly.

The screen resolution stays to that of the games' even after you exit.

A quick fix could be to check for any graphics driver updates, Windows updates, and also BIOS updates.

If the issue is still there after all the updates, you can Running the SFC /SCANNOW Command and see if it helps.

Feel free to report back for any further assistance.

Cheers!!
