Windows 7: User Account Picture on Logon Screen size "Windows 7 Ultimate x64"

User Account Picture on Logon Screen size (SOLVED)

Okay first hello and thanks for any info you could provide.

First my screen resolution is 1920x1200

The logon screen is this same resolution, thus the User Account Picture on Logon Screen size looks about 1 inch squared

Is there anyway to change this to make it larger

Note: I'm talking about the User Account Picture not the logon screen

If you're the only person that uses that pc, set a password and it will help make your pc more secure, plus you will have a bigger user account picture.

thanks mate, but seems like after I posted this, I found a workaround, but I thank you for the advice

Quote:
1. Click the Start button and type regedit in the Search box. In the Results, Right Click regedit and select the Run as Administrator option.
Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts

2. Backup the value you will be changing.

Right click the Fonts key in the left pane, select Export. In the Save As dialog, select the Desktop as the save in location. In the File Name box type LogonBackup. Click the Save button.

If anything goes wrong, you can go to the Desktop, right click the LogonBackup.reg file and select Merge to restore the registry value.

3. In the right side pane, Double Click the LogPixels value. In the Edit dialog box, change the 2 digit value using the following guide.


60 -(100% Font Size) -Default size
78 -(125% Font Size)
90 -(150% Font Size)
4. Exit the Registry editor and restart the computer to test the results.
