Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro - external monitor resolution

I have my Yoga 2 Pro on 3200x1800 and DELL 24inch monitor at 1920x1200 - both native resolution.
When I set the text to 'smaller' I get the correct scaling on the DELL, BUT the Yoga is tiny! When I change it to look right on the Yoga the DELL is huge.

I read somewhere that Windows 8.1 (which I have) allows individual settings/scaling. But I haven't found a way to adjust it individually.

Can someone please give me a step-by-step?

Right click on the Desktop and select Display Settings. At the bottom, click on Advanced Display settings, and down at the bottom you can set text size. This is pretty close to the Windows 8 settings.

Sorry John. Every setting affects BOTH monitors. So I have either very small on one OR very large on the other!
Not a user of windows 8 rather windows 7 but my initial thoughts is how you have setup the two screens. are using extend my desktop or dual modes or clone modes?

So that the monitors run independently of your desktop try using a different display method such as dual mode if it is applicable, look in your control panel displays or on the video card if you have an nvidia in control panel Nvidia control panel.
Since the screens vary in size using the one desktop spanned over two or extend your desktop to the two may explain the variation since the monitors have a big difference in size but the desktop is one size.
There's some really nice tips here you may not  know of, such as different wallpaper for the different screens

I read that individual scaling is fixed in Windows 10 (I could be wrong).
However, I'm working round (in Windows 8.1) by setting my Lenovo display to 1920x1080. Although that's not the native resolution it does the job for me.
