PA Desktop Screen selects incorrect items when changing Desktop Scale

I have a 3440x1440p monitor and I am constantly having to change the desktop scale on my computer when I screen share my applications in Microsoft Teams. I figured this should be the solution I should try to solve for my first flow. 


The problem I am facing is that everything works great when my flow runs from the desktop scale that it was created with but after changing the scale, I get the following error when the flow tries to select the scale dropdown (i.e. Combo Box 'Change the size of text, apps, and other items').

Robin.Core.ActionException: Failed to perform the requested operation on the drop down list (drop down list wasn't found)
at Robin.Modules.UIAutomation.Actions.SetDropDownListValueInWindow.Execute(ActionContext context)
at Robin.Runtime.Engine.ActionRunner.RunAction(String action, Dictionary`2 inputArguments, Dictionary`2 outputArguments, IActionStatement statement)


This is my main flow.

This is the main flow that calls the ChangeDesktopScale flowThis is the main flow that calls the ChangeDesktopScale flow

This is the ChangeDesktopScale flow. The error happens either on Step 6 or Step 7 usually.

This is what changes the Desktop scaleThis is what changes the Desktop scale


Any help would definitely be appreciated!
