Monitor Scaling in Windows 10

I have a Microsoft Surface. When I am working as a standalone without monitors, I set the screen to 1920 x 1280 but the text is a bit small so I go into Windows 10 settings (System->Display) and under "Scale and layout" I change the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" to 125%.

When I go back to my desktop setup with multiple monitors, I have to manually go back into Windows 10 settings and set this back to 100%.

Could you add the ability to change scaling as a part of a Monitor Configuration profile? This way, I could have my single monitor profile to 1920 x 1280 with scaling of 125% but the desktop profile would be 1920 x 1280 with a scaling of 100%.

I hope this makes sense. I have attached a screenshot of the Windows 10 settings screen in case you do not understand what parameter I am changing.

Thank you,
Lloyd C

It does make sense, and we're actually planning to add this at some point :)

I've added your info to the ticket and we'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to get it implemented.

I second that request. In fact, it totally useful for anyone who uses 4k or 5k screens for different usage profiles (e.g. 4x 1080p with multiple apps (=scaling 1.0) vs. 1x 4k for hidpi website browsing (=scaling 1.5)). I'm actually kind of surprised that it's missing given the vast amount of functionality otherwise.

Hi Chris, I would also like to be able to save display scaling as part of monitor profiles - can you please add me to the update ticket to be notified if you're able to add this functionality? Thanks for your help.
