using excel to generate charts, the appearance changes depending on which monitor I am using.

I have created a number of charts in Excel and discovered that the formatting is corrupted if I try to view the chart on a different monitor. If I create it on the PC monitor all the labels, plot sizes are too small when viewed on a larger format extended monitor.  If I create it on the large monitor, it is all scrunched up when viewed on the PC monitor.  How can this be frozen so the appearance is not corrupted every time a change the viewing device?

Hello @Jeffrey-Lynn , try a different Display Setting. When Excel is open on the secondary monitor, look at the bottom of the Excel Window.
