How to open vnc console with scaling already set to Local Scaling ?

Nov 17, 2019
I can use link like
to open a vnc connection to the VM, however it opens with the scrollbars on the edges of the screen. I can use the cog menu on the left to select scaling (which defaults to off) to Local Scaling, which shrinks the vm desktop to fit into the browser window.

I tried changing the link with resize=on, however this results in browser saying the serverr did not send any data.

How would I create a bookmark to the VM that would immediately open with the vnc set to local scaling?

Top right of the GUI, click on your username, then "My Settings". There's an option where you can specify the default scaling mode.
