Windows 7: Enlarge Password window on welcome screen

Enlarge Password window on welcome screen

Anyone know if one can enlarge the window for entering a password on the welcome screen?

Possibly due to my screen resolution settings, the login area for my password is quite small. Once the password is entered and the system finishes booting - everything is the size I like - which is on the larger side since I tend to sit relaxed and away from the 20" screen.

It is either the default user or Admin account resolution. TweakUI had an option to copy the settings over. I can find almost every setting except resolution.

You could try activating the Administrator account, log on, set a low resolution, log out. Log in as yourself to test. And no matter the result, de-activate the Admin account.

And please, do not even think about keeping the Admin account active. It is inactive for a reason.

I just tested my approach, and I think it worked. The problem is, I bypass the logon screen with auto log in, so I don't know what it should look like. But the user account picture was freakin' huge.

Now, I just need to determine if delprof will cleanup the Admin folders in C:\Users.

Hi rpmstl

You could use the Ease of access button on welcome screen, bottom left hand corner.

Antman,
Doesn't appear to work. When I adjust the res settings on myself or the new admin user they transfer over to each other. When I log off admin and back into myself to reset the res settings, they change in the admin account as well.

Of course I have UAC turned all the way down and I have myself set up as the admin - are your settings different?

Theog,
That magnifier on Ease of Access would be just fine if I was near blind I do know someone with very poor vision that could use that feature to read emails and such.

Thanks for the help guys!

We may not be communicating effectively. Please see the link that Brink added to my earlier post.
Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

Do you mean that you are a user with the admin account setting?

1. Activate Administrator Account.
2. Log Off.
3. Log in under the Administrator account.
4. Set low res.
5. Boot.
6. Log in as SELF
7. De-Activate Administrator Account.
8. Set preferred res.
9. Boot.

Thanks for the response.

I did set up a new admin account per the link but did not do everything exactly as you just stated.

I will try again later today and see if I can do it properly this time.
