I have a number of computers in my organization that duplicate the display to a mohnitor and projector. The problem is, when new users log on, the computer reverts back to single display.

Is there a reg key I can modify to force Duplicate Display at all times?

Well, you could use a command line tool like

run from a script loaded by the runonce key in the Default user's ntuser.dat file (you would have to Load Hive in regedit to edit that key).

Apparently, the asker never even considered, let-alone tried, my solution.

Your solution did not adress my question. My question clearly stated I was looking for a reg key to modify.

Yes... the key to modify is the Runonce key in the Default user's ntuser.dat, to run a script on intial logon (only).
