Description of the warning/error

A high-DPI display isn’t detected correctly in Windows 10.

Full message

Windows 10 allows scaling UI elements. My pc has the scaling size 125% and the resolution 1920x1080. But mmscan’t detect the monitor with these settings correctly:

>>> from mss import mss
>>> sct = mss()
>>> sct.monitors
[{'height': 864, 'left': 0, 'top': 0, 'width': 1536},
 {'height': 864, 'left': 0, 'top': 0, 'width': 1536}]

When I change the scaling size to 100%, mms works fine.

Hello I’ve just tested last mss version from dev On W10, with an upscaled UI at 125%, everything is fine, but if I set 150% or more, the bottom and right sides are still cropped 😦
