I wish to connect to a server running Terminal Service ( Remote admin only ) however I want each client that connects to be provided with a specific font size
( Usually set on the server via Display/properties/advanced ).  My question is:  Is it possible to change this property uniquely for each user of Terminal Services and how would this be achieved?

Have you checked to see if the setting you're trying to manipulate is an option in group policies?

I would create a "Scheme" in display properties | Advanced and save it.  Then modify the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL|APPEARANCE|CURRENT key to point to the Scheme you just created.  I haven't tested this so be sure to back up the key before modifying it.

This would change any user who has NOT logged into the server before, so if you want the change to affect everyone, then you will need to delete their profiles or modify them individually.

I don't think it will work:

Q186558:
The system setting for font size affects all clients connected to Terminal
Server. To ensure that data is displayed correctly on lower resolution monitors,
set the font size to small.
