Make the settings, then export HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics from regedit.exe.

A little more info for you.

---------
To perform this in a login script or other batch file, use REG.EXE from Supplement 4 of the Server Resource Kit.

 The instructions to include are:

                      echo y| reg delete HKCR\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\="My Computer"
 reg add HKCR\CLSID\{00000000-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\="%"computername"% /%"username"%" REG_EXPAND_SZ

The echo y| pipes your confirmation of the delete. The interior quote marks around computername and username prevents   their immediate expansion.

I hope this helps !
