    Screen Resolution (XP Pro, sp3)

    Is there a way to set individual screen resolutions for each user?


    Thanks

    There's a free utility that provides this capability: XP Keep per User Display Settings.

    Just out of interest, Doug Knox has a relatively tiny program (19 KB vs. nearly 1 MB) XP User Display Settings, but it doesn't cope with the resolutions of wide screens and some laptops...

    Also, Doug Knox's utility doesn't handle Fast User Switching, while the one I mentioned does.

    (I'm aware that Fast User Switching is frowned upon, I just wanted to note it)

    This utility seems to be doing the trick. Has an annoying flash just after the desktop displays. I can deal with this to have the dual resolution.


    Thanks for the help
