Setting Terminal Server Font Sizes
By bhlackey on Feb 08, 2007
Some users may want a larger overall font experience, unfortunately setting each of the fonts bigger under windows is kind of a pin. Additionally there is no nice way of making scroll bars, widgets, etc. bigger.
When you set the DPI, Windows calculates the relative sizes of the graphic elements so that not only the fonts are bigger, but scroll bars, etc as well.
Lately I have had several complaints about "the fonts are too small". This is likely due to the fact that the DTUs pick the optimal monitor timings, when the user originally had a lower resolution when it was hooked up to their PC. This is compounded by thy fact that in a "Windows on SRSS or SGD" setup, there is not always an easy way to set the resolution of the display.
After some hunting and some trial and error, I have created a couple of Registry files which make all of the necessary settings.
Please find HERE a zip file with 3 registry files.
This will set the Windows effective DPI accordingly.
Double click on the registry file, accept the warning, logout, login, and you're all set.
