Windows 7 DPI settings

Where can I find DPI settings within a Windows 7 Pro operating system?  I've got some "BS" answer from vendor tech support and so I have to ensure DPI settings are correct for the client to run correctly.  Below is the steps they want you to take in XP Pro, but in Windows 7, the path isn't identical.

This can be caused by customer using custom DPI settings in the display settings for the desktop.  To change the display properties back to normal setting:
1) Right click on the Windows desktop and choose properties
2) Click Advanced on the settings tab
3) Under DPI setting use the drop down box to choose Normal Size and save your settings
4) Reboot when prompted

Mines' set to normal as the vendor stated it should be, client still doesn't load properly.  Thanks for the detailed steps.  New to Windows 7 so everything is different to me.
