Second Screen and 16:10 screens

I wanted to use the Second Screen feature of my Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 with my laptop. Both have 16:10 displays but the Tab S7 reports itself as a 16:9 FHD screen. The image sent to my tablet is then squashed, while showing black bars. Does anyone know any workaround for this issue until Samsung fixes this (hopefully)? Thanks.

Hi HedgehogEngine,
If you are trying to connect your tablet with your PC by using the DeX mode, please follow the steps below and check if it works fine.
