Load Monitor Profile on Computer Shutdown/Restart?

One problem Ive noticed with switching monitors is the different scales mess up. For example if I watch Youtube on my 4K TV with 200% scale before bed then shut down my computer and go back on my 1080p monitor at 100% scale in the morning then some of the icon sizes and spacing are messed up etc. So then I have to restart or log out to fix it which is a bit of a pain!

I realise this is the fault of Windows not Displayfusion.
I know you can load a profile on start up but this doesnt fix the scaling issues. So I thought one possible way to fix this would be to load the default monitor profile before shutting down or restarting the computer. I have Windows 10 Pro and know you can trigger certain tasks but would appreciate some guidance on how to do this please. Basically it just needs to run a shortcut linked to a monitor profile.

Thanks

When you boot back up in the morning, is the 4K TV still connected? Or is it only the 1080p monitor?

Hello Keith. Thanks for the reply - sorry I didnt realised you had.

Yeh all the monitors are still connected. I just thought it would make more sense to load a profile on shutdown rather than on startup to avoid any potential scaling issues

Ah gotcha. What you could do is have a DisplayFusion Scripted Function that loads the profile, then initiates a shutdown. If you think that would work for you, I can write up a quick example script that does that.
