    Ok, this means from version 1709 (any build) and beyond one will need to use reg files except for custom scaling?

    Hey Mike, :)

    Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, you would see the "Advanced scaling settings" link instead of the "Custom scaling" link.
    hi, i just upgrade to windows verion 1709 and only see custom scaling link
    keep in mind i dont have admin account so cannot change registry, how to fix this?
    oh and i dont want to sign out everytime dock/undock, that's why i tried to upgrade

    Hello brits,

    Unfortunately, it's required to sign out and sign in to fully apply DPI scaling changes.

    You might see if changing your screen resolution instead when you dock/undock to see if that may work better for you.
