Allow terminal service user (thin client) to change display settings

I have thin clients running of the Windows 2003 server and I would like for the users to be able to adjust their screen resolution.

So far in the group policy editer, under administrative templates, control panel, display, I cannot find a way to enable this.

Any advise would be helpfu

You can't change the resolution on a terminal services connection once you are connected. It can only be set prior to starting the connection.

This is something you would need to configure on the thin client. I don't know if your have the option, but the thin clients I have can store multiple connections, so I make connections for different resolutions so the user can choose which works for them.
