Windows 7: Set default menu size and font for new users?

15 Jun 2010   #11


Thank you Chev, and the rest of the Forum community:

I apologize for taking so much of your time on this problem.

I decided to try a test using a 32 bit Windows 7 Pro OS on a similar, but different, HW platform. The default theme was easily set by the group policy editor. I then replaced the 32 bit OS with a fresh Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS build, and voila, the default theme was easily set using the group policy editor.

Clearly, the OS is not to blame for the trouble, and I should have performed a more though test suite, including more than one target, before casting blame on MSFT

Humbly yours,

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I knew it should work but it seemed like something was blocking it. When in doubt reinstall the Op system and try again. Always a good stradigy for these types of problems.

Did you need to set the path on both tabs? Glad you got it working.
