Per-User Display Settings 2k8 Std AD, Win7 Clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to have display settings change based on who is logged in on a group of Windows 7 clients. One user account needs to be at 800x600, another at 1024x768. Both accounts are heavily locked down, so they cannot change the resolution themselves (and they're small children so we don't want them messing with it anyway).

    Our AD is running on Windows Server 2008 Standard. The clients are all running Windows 7.

     

    Is there a login script or GPO option I can use to do this? I can't find it...

     

    Thanks!

  • Try using QRes and use a login kixtart script like :

    IF InGroup("Res_800x600")

        shell "qres.exe /x:800 /y:600"

    EndIF

    Use GPP Files to push the Qres.exe file locally on the computers to %Windir%\System32 and create a Res_800x600 AD group for this to work.
