Any way of changing the login screen DPI, as mine is locked at 125% and I would like it to be 100%.

Open Regedit (Start, run then type regedit) then navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop and add a DWORD value (right click, new, DWORD Value). Call it LogPixels and set the base to decimal.

Now, You can insert a DPI (96=+) into the value field for the corresponding DPI. The DPI is not a percentage. As reference: 96 DPI is 100% 120 DPI is 125% 144 DPI is 150%

It is best to use one of those DPI settings since Windows is tailored to work best with them.

My HP Envy 17 was annoyingly set at 100 DPI for this setting. Thanks for the tip! –  PureForm Jan 27 '13 at 2:19
