    Automatically set text and scaling options when docked

    I have recently purchased a Surface Pro 3. Absolutely loving it.

    I am just having an issue where I have the Microsoft docking station and I want to have 100% text and icon scaling when docked (for my big LCD screen) and then when I undock and take the tablet to a meeting it reverts to 150%, then goes back to 100% when I come back from a meeting and dock it again.

    It is currently something I am doing manually and having to logout and back in is a bit frustrating when I have a lot of open applications.

    If there is no way around this. If not I am hoping Windows 10 might provide an option?

    I'm a happy Surface Pro 3 owner as well, but I don't believe there's any way around this, unfortunately. Hopefully, someone else will have an idea.

I went into my power options to change some of the advanced settings and most of them are missing? I am on windows 8.1 with a week old Surface Pro 3. I want to say I read somewhere that hyper-v can cause options to be missing, but I honestly don't even know what that is and I don't have it...
Icon shows on task bar but must manually touch. What was MS thinking - this is a giant step backward. And I am referring to popping up the keyboard in a text box when in desktop, not on Metro (where it does pop up). In Win 7 the keyboard always pops up but MS changed the setting for Win 8 -...
