Windows 7: Do not resize icons while changing dpi ?

Do not resize icons while changing dpi ?

Hello,

I want to keep same(original) size icons while increasing dpi.
Possible ?

Why: I always increased dpi to change text size for windows property sheets. (I can change font sizes without dpi change for all fonts except property sheet font, so dpi is the only way). While changing dpi in XP, large icons changed it's size only at bigger dpi values (for example at 108dpi large icon sizes are the same as at 96dpi on my monitor). While in windows 7 icon sizes change immediately - doesn't matter how much you inclease dpi. As a result icons look not very good.

thanks
Vilius

Hello viliusum,

Have you tried changing the icon size? Hold down the Ctrl key and scroll with the mouse wheel.

See if that gives you the desired results.

Yes I did.
What I want to do is to get 32x32 size icons while using 108dpi.
Now icon size is about 35x35.
