User should be able to scale view of window on Sims / Emus

Right now, visibility on emulators and simulators is limited to the size of screen it has and the screen of the user. It can be hard to view certain elements as a result of this. Users would like the ability to zoom in or scale the window of a simulator or emulator for better usability.

    Simulators are not resizeable, only scalable. You can scale them via the Window --> Scale menu. Emulators are only scalable by window dragging in Emulator 2.0, which we are currently implementing. 

    In either case, the maximum scale of the window should be defined by the resolution of the "desktop", if it's too large in manual testing, use the zoom functionality in simulators, and wait for emulator 2.0 for emulators.
