    hi,

    under XP Pro how can i setup different screen resolution for different user.
    Eg; Guest having a resolution of 800X600 and Admin having a resolution of 1024X768 when they log.

    is this possible cause' i kept trying to change the res. but it changed it for every user! (not wat i want)
    :(
    or perhaps there is some command/prg i can run at startup or something !?

    help appreciated.
    :D

    oright i got it .... a lill prg

    Its called MULTIRES and can be found at http://www.entechtaiwan.com/
    What to do is, once you have installed it, place a shortcut to the program in the \Documents and Settings\USER\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folders of each user.
    In the properties of this shortcut, add statements to the target line to choose which res, colour depth etc. that you want.
    EXAMPLE:

    "D:\Program Files\MultiRes\MultiRes.exe" /1024,768,32,85
    problem solved !!!:D
