    In Blue: Automatic Desktop Display Scaling

    In yesterday’s brief overview of a newly-leaked build of Windows 8.1 “Blue,” I noted that Microsoft had added a new automatic desktop screen scaling feature that appears aimed at fixing a long-standing issue with Windows. Having tested this feature on a real PC with multiple displays, I now have a bit more to report.

    Read about this on another site, and after reading your version I still see little to no use for this add on/feature. . .

Separate Scaling for Each Display
I use Windows 8 on a rMBP, but frequently use an external monitor that's 1080p. Since it scales 200% for the HiDPI of the rMBP, it's way too big on the external. Is there a way I can have it scale only the internal monitor, and leave the external one at 100%?
