Both gnome-tweak-tool and Display settings tools seem to offer a way to change the scaling of the display (See screenshot below), however it is not clear to me how they are related and which controls what. Also, they don't seem to be in sync.

Do you know What is the difference between these two tools?


Gnome Tweaks and Gnome Display Settings


Gnome-Tweaks -- Font Scaling.. means size of the Font is Increased..

Fonts Scaling Factor set to 2 enter image description here

Fonts Scaling Factor set to 3 enter image description here

Display Settings.. is the scaling of all elements..

Displays Scale set to 100% enter image description here

Displays Scale set to 200% enter image description here

Based on your needs and resources both the cases are used..
