    Hi all!

    Not sure if I am in the right category on this forum.
    I am having issues with certain apps when it comes to scaling.
    For my 4K monitor I use the 1440p scaling, which means it's actually generating a 5K resolution.
    However, Photoshop thinks that I am using a 5K display, so when I create a 4K document and zoom in 100%, it doesn't show a 4K 1:1 pixel view but instead a zoomed out image, making pixel peeping harder. This problem goes away when using 1080p scaling or no scaling at all, which are both unpleasant on a 27'' monitor.
    Also, some games only let me select either 1440p or 5K resolutions, instead of 4K (doesn't really bother me but I still think it's odd).

    Is there something I can do to fix this? Is there a way to perform scaling like windows 10 does? Or is there something I am just not getting (could very well be the case :p).

    Thank you in advance!
    Regards

    I think 144Hz monitor is the best option for gaming. It provides unique, amazing and breathtaking gaming experience. It also provides better clarity then any other.
