DPI setting is not user specific
I recently came acrossed an issue where in Vista, if you change the DPI
settings for the administrator, the DPI changes fo all users. I was unable to
solve the problem for allowing the DPI setting to be user-specific. Any
solutions?

Thanks,
Nick

Hi,

DPI settings, just like display adaptor resolutions, are system-wide, not
per user settings.

Re: DPI setting is not user specific
I used XP Keep per User Display Settings in XP (of course).

After going to Vista, I installed it with the hopes that it would work with
all the Vista changes.

To my delight, it works great.
