Hello Experts

Im using win2k with multiple user accounts on it. While one user preferes 800x600 another one prefers 1280x768. As far as I know changing the resultion in windows changes it for all the users. How can I select multiple resoluton settings for different users?


Respect, Rudy

Don't think you can do that Rudy.

I've not seen this anyway

I searched for a long time to find out how to do this, and as far as I know there is no way....let me know if you can figure out how.

As long as you're looking, little utilities like TweakUI won't do it. I left off at trying to write something myself....I'll let you know if I get it working :)
