    Forget the downscale thing, it's ugly as your favorite pest. Usable only for Metro apps, which are a pest as well.

    DUDE, it is there :D it was there in all of the Win 8 versions & it's there in the RTM search the registry properly or even better do a manual search taking help from the article u posted above...I also thought that MS had removed this hack but,it's there :eek:

    contact Dell as this is not ok. The driver, even W7 version should be ok until an 8 version comes out one day. When using the 7 driver from Dell u should be able to do the downscale procedure. Not sure it is available with the generic version

    Hmm...apparently I found 2 registry keys which were unique to my netbook & was not present in my desktop (that's weird I have the same version of Windows installed on both PCs :eek:)...here's the registry entry which contained the key Display1_DownScalingSupported it was :- Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Video\{23D768E9-57CA-45CE-AB4C-14EBE0A60599}\0000
