    Display Setting "Change the size of all items" menu

    Hey guys i got a surface pro and i hooked it up to my dell u2311hm monitor. Now when its not hooked up, i like to have the display setting size to Medium - 125% or Large - 150% (default) but once i hook my mini display in, the dell u2311 looks like ass at Large. so i gotta bring it down to Small - 100%. Is it possible to have different settings for different display. Its kind of annoying having to switch back and forth every time, cuz i have to log in and out every time.

    no. Windows 8.1 (Blue) is going to address the problem. but that's not until the fall.

    did you play around with the "change only the text size" option as well as the custom sizing option?
