Support multiple monitors at different resolutions on Windows

Support multiple monitors at different resolutions on Windows

New member | Level 2

Dropbox is one of the worst offenders in my experience for having poor support for multiple monitors that run at different resolutions. The Dropbox windows do not readjust themselves when moved between monitors, and if the Dropbox icon has a context-sensitive menu (as it used to), it never appears. Today's "You get new features for free" window is a case in point:

  • It is not resizeable
  • Its default size is too small both vertically and horixontally to display its content.

The main Dropbox window has the following problems.

  • The top left menu dropbox menu font is too small, as is the top right ... menu, as is the "Add" dropdown. But the view grid/large grid/List/large list menu is well-sized.

Can you please improve Dropbox's multiple-resolution support and at least do some testing?

 

My setup is:

  • Windows Version 10.0.18363.1016
  • 3 monitors running recommended resolutions
    • 1920x1080
    • 1680x1050
    • 1920x1200
  • Windows default "let Windows try to fix apps so they're not blurry"
  • Windows recommended 150% "size of text apps and other items"
  • Extend desktop to the display
