Windows 7: login screen DPI settings different

login screen DPI settings different

I had a question about different DPI settings for different user accounts. I got a new laptop and when the windows login screen come up where you would enter in your user account and password it looks like the Display DPI settings are set at 125%. After I login however my Display DPI settings of 100% are applied. Is there a way to change the default Display DPI settings of the login screen? I am not sure if this would be a different registry settings under a different branch. Thanks.

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
