If you want to change directly the form files (without opening it in Visual Studio), I suggest to you to download any "Grep" software. For example, WinGrep.

You can do a search for the string
Me.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font
... because this is the string defining the AutoScaleMode in Windows Forms (you can find it in the Form.Designer.vb file). And once the files have been found, you can do a Replace with the string
Me.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Dpi

Hope that helps.
