    Hotkey for changing scaling level?

    Are there any way to create a hotkey or so to quickly change scaling level in Win10?

    I have my PC hooked up to a TV and sometimes I want to change the scaling quickly for some programs.

    Any chance of this happening?

    I have already accomplished this. What I hope to do is to have kind of a quick shortcut that actually sets eg. scaling 125% and another one that sets scaling 100%. Something like this. Is it at all possible? I'd even be happy to buy some third party program that could do this for me.

    You've now defined the question differently. Hope you get an answer..

    Meanwhile here's what I suggest in outline:
    Download and install Regshot (free) = just search for it.
    With your PC idle- as little activity as you can.. create a snapshot with Regshot.
    Now change your scaling.
    Create a second snapshot with Regshot.

    When finished, Compare.

    Inspect the result. By noting what change is made in the registry, you may with due caution be able to find the change made. Given the registry change, then create e.g. a bat file that does that.
    Then a shortcut and hot key to that file.

    Repeat for each scaling level you want.

    Hope it works out for you. Good luck.

    I seem to get nowhere with this actual issue, but I found a app that forces Win8 scaling (which work better for my purposes).
