Windows 7: Segou UI Font Size Keeps Changing After An RDP Session

Segou UI Font Size Keeps Changing After An RDP Session


For some reason I always discover the really weird GUI bugs. Here's one I'm hoping someone has figured out:

[Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1]
I set my Advanced Appearance settings as follows:
- Active Windows, Segoe UI=13pt
- Menu, Segoe UI=13pt
- Icon, Segoe UI=13pt
- Message Box, Segoe UI=13pt

Profile is maintained without any issues when I'm working locally. I then connect remotely using RDP with [-admin] console switch. Work as usual then logout. When returning to my physical desktop and logging in locally, all Segoe UI items listed above switch to 14pt. Any ideas?

Side Note
RDP has enough issues already such as not maintaining the DPI settings unless you lock an actual console session them remote in. How about the desktop icon displacement every time the RDP session resolution is changed. I know you can use "Iconoid" to fix this, but it's just plain silly that it cannot be tweaked within the RDP client.

Wow, I have no idea as I avoid Remote Desktop like a plague and never used it.

Perhaps Teamviewer as an alternate solution would work better for you?
