    Hello

    I use my SP3 with default 150% scaling in Tablet mode, but in the Dockingstation with 23" Monitor this is too much. Is there a way to switch the scaling automaticly?

    sadly, no. I hope this is something MS fixes soon. It's driving me nuts going from docked to undocked, etc. It's maddening.

    Microsoft did fix this, it just isn't what people where expecting. If you use XP Scaling you only get one size, if you use the Windows 8.x Default Slider it uses an algorithm to adjust based on Screen Size, Resolution and DPI, so on my SP3 while using an extended monitor I'm using approx. 150% but on my 24" 1080p I'm using approx. 100%.

    What people are wanting is impossible with Win32 Applications without abandoning backwards compatibility.

    The best thing I found was to download the intel video driver and create a 1440 x 960 resolution. After setting the surface to that my scaling looks great going between monitors and surface.
