So basically I just purchases a second display. its an Asus 1080p 240-280hz monitor. my other display is a 1440p Pixio 165hz display. anyways when I try to drag a file to a different screen it's a different size. I don't know what to do because there both on 100% scaling. I think it has to do with them being different resolutions. I just don"t know how to fix it

Try both recommended resolution and scaling...

... some portions of some apps, however, may still behave improperly.

To check the screen res, set them both to the same screen resolution as a test, then set them back

You have to set the resolution and refresh Rate need to be the same on both screens. which may mean lowering the Resolution on the Pixio monitor. If this is unsatisfactory, return the Asus monitor and get another 1440P monitor as your second monitor, or live with them being different.
