Size of the fonts and picture in login screen.

Hi.

I am installing a new desktop for my mother with win7. She is not seeing so well so I need to increase the font size and/or the picture size in the logon screen for her.

I know there is a way, changing some values in a .dll, but a need some step by step instructions.

Thanks.

No need to modify any dll. That screen adopts the values set for the hidden admin account.

Allow me to re-address.

Login as an admin.

Set resolution to a lower value.

Create new account.

Log out as admin, log in new account.

If necessary, modify new account's resolution.

Log on screen will retain the lower res.

Not sure how to change the size of the pic.

Without taking a photo of my log in screen, I cannot demonstrate that I have a working example of what you are asking for.
