When Windows (XP pro) is installed you always start with a dpi of 96, the problem is I run a resolution of 1280*960 (crt screen) and I find it more relaxed for my eyes when I us dpi 120, its not a lot of work to change but it would be nice if I can start after the unattended with dpi 120. Does any one of you know how it must be done I thought a reg tweak so I have readied the reg tweak topic but it couldn’t help me.
I hope one of you can.

You can put your resolution into a winnt.sif file. The dpi is fixed for a monitor?

I think you get 120dpi by enabling ClearType Font in the Display Property. Right?

Here is my tweak:

;Enable ClearType for ALL Users
[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
"FontSmoothing"="2"
"FontSmoothingType"="2"

Unfortunately your tweak didn’t work, I still started with a dpi of 96 instate of 120

Maybe this one :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI]"LogPixels"=dword:00000078

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"Courier 10,12,15 (8514a res)"="COURF.FON"
"MS Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24 (8514a res)"="SERIFF.FON"
"MS Sans Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24 (8514a res)"="SSERIFF.FON"
"Small Fonts (8514a res)"="SMALLF.FON"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\GRE_Initialize]
"FIXEDFON.FON"="8514fix.fon"
"FONTS.FON"="8514sys.fon"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\Software\Fonts]

humm sorry about that. I didn't understand your question correctly!

I tought you where talking about enhanced resolution... in fact you want to have BIGGER text?

One way of doing it is to go into Display Property where you can ajust the Wallpaper, Screensaver and you can specify FONT SIZE: LARGE FONT.
Return to the Theme tab and select Save as...

Next, put this custom .theme file in \$OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes

Next you'll add this to your Winnt.sif
[Shell]
    CustomDefaultThemeFile="%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\xxx.theme"

Hope this help!

So if I copy and paste the following into my registry tweaks, the DPI will be set to 120? That's also what I'm looking for too...

I'm just skeptical because there are quite a bit of registry tweaks needed to get 120DPI.

Just FYI, you can use the above said reg tweaks to set any DPI. For example, I prefer 125 DPI. All you have to do is change the ["LogPixels"=dword:] value to the hex number of your DPI. Ex: mine is 0000007d=125. It's just the DPI in hexadecimel. I believe that the rest of the setting changes stay the same as for above said DPI changes.

I just put this registry tweak in and it doesn't work like you claim. I don't get 120DPI with this registry setting:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI]
"LogPixels"=dword:00000078

Are you sure that I don't need to use the other registry settings that the previous poster gave?

This setting sets the DPI to 125% or (120 dpi). I checked it myself to make sure it worked.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontDPI]
"LogPixels"=dword:00000078

It doesn't work for me. In case someone said that my registry tweak file isn't placed in the right place, all other registry tweaks work besides this one and the remove links folder tweak.
