No way in the GUI to reset the per-VM scale factor to follow the global one.

If you set (even once) the per-VM scale factor in VM Settings > Display > Screen > Scale Factor, then an ExtraData item is inserted in the .vbox configuration file:
<ExtraDataItem name="GUI/ScaleFactor" value="1.5"/>
Once that setting is there, there's no way to reset it back to follow the global scale factor from the GUI, only from the CLI:
VBoxManage setextradata <uuid|vmname> "GUI/ScaleFactor"
A mechanism is needed, such as a "
Reset to Defaults" or "
Reset to Global" button, where the ExtraData item is removed, and the VM follows the global settings.
