Hello again,

Running XP Home w/ SP1 - having an issue with user settings. Have two different profiles set up, one for myself and one for my wife both with admin privileges.

Her and I like our monitor resolutions set differently but when we change it Windows changes it for both of our profiles. I am using a Samsung 172X LCD.

How do I get Windows to remember our preferences?

You can't. The display resolution isn't something you can save as a setting.

There might be an application that will change it based on who's logged in (something that runs in your personal startup folder), but I haven't researched it.

I solved this same problem by giving my wife her own computer ;)

I guess that's one solution - but, wouldn't work for me (at leat not at the moment). The worst part is I just finished building the machine and I can't even enjoy the fruits of my labor, my wife won't stop using it!

What about powerstrip - doesn't that allow you to set up different profiles based on how you want to overclock certain games etc. - any possible eye relief there?

The only app that I can think of is Ultramon, but I'm not at home right now to look at it to tell you if it has that functionality.

I suppose at worst, you can use something like quickres to make it more convient.

Weird...

I've got an Optiquest Q95 19" CRT.

In my profile, resolution is 1280x1024.

In my wife's, 1024x768.

Neither of us log out. We just switch users. And there's nary a problem.
