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.

Thanks!

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.

I also need this feature. I use a 55" 4k screen as my external monitor with my laptop when I have it docked. To best utilize the screen real estate, I've split it into four monitors with DisplayFusion, with scaling set to 150% in Windows 10 display settings, and all works well while I'm sitting on my desk and working. However, when I move back a few feek away to my bed, I need to switch to a different profile that's a single monitor, along with changing the scaling to 300% from Windows 10 display settings in order to actually be able to see things on the screens from such distance. Having scaling options as part of DisplayFusion monitor profiles would mean I'd need to change only the DisplayFusion profile each time I need to make the switch, rather than having to change both the DisplayFusion profile AND windows scaling from display settings.

Same here. Please add Scaling to the Monitor Profile options.
