Do anyone know where these setting are placed in the Windows Registry or where ever they are recorded at.
What i did was to open:

Control Panel
Display
Setting
Custom Font Size
Others
Than I Scale Fonts to be 150%

Than you have to re-boot the Machine.

So now i am trying to find out where those setting are made at. I thought they were in HKEY_CURRENT_USE\Control Panel\ but they are not it seems.

Also would you know how to change the Custom Font size programally.

Thanks in advance

Cmax,
After doing some tracing of the 'display configuration'. I found two places
in the system registry were they are stored. They are called 'LogPixels'.
However, I only have Windows/2K so the values will differ on other versions
of windows.

.Registry
Assumed compatible with Windows/NT/2K/XP:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI\LogPixels
Assumed compatible with Windows/9x:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\FontDPI\LogPixels

Assumed compatible with Windows/9x/NT/2K/XP:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\Current\Software\Fonts\LogPixels

Other then the above registry entries I dont know how you can change it. And I dont know
if it will work to only change those values. But I tried to do it with 'ChangeDisplaySettings'
wich use the 'DEVMODE' struct, wich then include a setting for 'LogPixels'. This was done
without sucess. Well thats all I know a.t.m.

I know this was a hard one because i searched the Registry for years from time to time and never found nothing. I am really suprize that someone could respond to this question. It was a Trip, Now i know that something is in there somewhere for sure. I'll go through Win 95 again but like you said 9 out of 10 it's under something that is not so ovious or don't make no since once founded.



Thanks natas
