Alright, try:
- HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\Software\Fonts - LogPixels to a larger value (check above link)
but also:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop - LogPixels to 96 (decimal) or anything else you want

See login screen DPI settings different where I got the idea.
Thanks. After searching the registry, these were the settings I found to make the default login screen DPI different than my user account:

LogPixels 120

LogPixels 120
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI

AppliedDPI 120
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

LogPixels 96
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

AppliedDPI 96
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
