    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.

    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
