    Hey guys, I know there is a thread about this somewhere but I was unable to find it.

    I know the Surface Pro comes with scaling set to 150%, and I'd just like to set it back to 100%. I've typed scaling, scale, and zoom into search looking for the correct setting, but have been unable to find it. Google also was not helpful so I figured one of you guys would know right away.

    Thank you!

    Go into the Screen Resolution settings. Choose "Make text and other items larger or smaller." I've been using 125% scaling myself.

    Perfect! Thank you very much! Didn't realize it would be with resolution.

    For me the sweet spot is 140 on my monitor setup.

    also using 125. boosts it just enough to help w/o warping the text. then get a high-res external monitor that isn't too larger, like a 27" instead of 30" with 2560x1440. just got one and all looks lovely!
