Windows 7 Screen resolution of one user also applied for other users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 Bit:
    I am using a second user on my computer for screenrecording purposes. For these recordings I usually  work with a lower resolution then what the screen would allow.
    Changing these settings under one user does also apply the same settings for the other user.
    Is this a correct behaviour or is it a bug?

  • Hi ufrei,

     

    The screen resolution is designed per operating system. Therefore, we cannot assign different screen resolution to each user. However, I found a similar thread mentioned certain third party software may achieve this. Please refer to Screen resolution per user.

     

    Thank you very much for your understanding.

     

    Regards,

  • As far as most people know, there is not a way to do different resolutions per user accounts. I have heard somewhere of a program that separates the user accounts for different settings, but I do not remember where or what it was. So to answer your question, it is correct behavior.
