    Shawn is da man. Every time I install a Geforce Driver update, it sets my screen to full 1920 by 1080, the actual size has to be scaled down to 1850 by 1035 or so, or else my taskbar can't be seen

    hi guys,

    Well although one can make the text smaller in the APPS section as mentionned above, after a reboot one has to change this AGAIN.

    Is there a way to change the DEFAULT setting in SMALLER permanent.


    thanks

    Hey Jeff,

    Odd, the setting should not reset like that. The smaller "Default" option is the default setting. This is a per user setting, so is this the same account that you had it set for this?

    That's why I asked if he were in some kind of Temporary Profile.

    Hello David,

    Sorry, but that would only apply for the desktop DPI. It has no affect on the modern UI (metro) screens DPI.

    no David, when doing it as mentionned above, i have the default, then i change it to smaller, there is no apply for it.

    BUT not only do i have this when rebooting, but also when coming out of the lockscreen this morning it went to "DEFAULT".

    This is strange, was not like that yesterday.......

    However, let's call this a but in the beta version.
