Changing DPI settings without restarting or logging off
Is there anyway to change the dpi / magnification settings in Windows 7 without having to log off and back on or restart the machine?
I'm looking at a 15.6" laptop as a desktop replacement with a 1080p (1920 X 1080) screen which makes the text and icons quite small. I can easily change the DPI to 120 (125%) or 144 (150%) and make everything readable which is great however when it's at a desk it's going to be connected to two 20 inch plus monitors and these require the normal 96dpi (100%).
The problem is it gets connected and disconnected frequently and having to close and reopen all apps to shut the machine down properly is a real pain.
Windows XP used to warn you about having to restart but if you didn't things were still resized. With Win 7 nothing happens until you do.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
