    Just wondering if anyone else has an issue with changing the display setting to "smaller" and it not sticking after a reboot, or even in between sleep sessions. It's really the only naggling issue I've been having with Windows 8.1 that I can't figure out how to make stick!

    It's in Settings>Change PC Settings>PC&Devices>Display and it's the drop-down under "More Options" in case you didn't know already...

    I'm guessing its a Beta Bug. As far as display scaling is concerned it seems the MS has the same top men on the job as they had studying the Ark of the Covenant at the end of Raiders.

    It is grayed out on the TPT2.

    Ha... Well thanks anyway guys. This forum is always the first place I look for answers to any issues. Hopefully something this simple will be fixed soon.

    Well, between this and the horrid wifi issues I was having, I finally restored my SP to it's former glory. I hope 8.1 will be fully baked when it finally releases because as it stands all the naggling headaches offset the nifty stuff it does for the SP.
