users loose desktop resolution

By nsvarner ·
When a user changes their desktop resolution, logs off, and different users log on the previous users resolution remains in effect. How can i make it so that each user can have their individual desktop resolutions.

Set up desktop and other settings the way you want them, then go to settings-controlpanel-users. Create a new user, and select the settings you want to save, especially the first selection - desktop.

Reboot, and login as that user, and you will have the saved settings.

I do not have an option to save certian settings, just what type of user to make the new user. All aspects of the profile are saved (wallpaper, tastbar, desktop icons, etc.) except for the screen resolution. I am running Win2k Pro SP1.

It sounds to me as if the accessibility options are turned on for all users. Go into the control panel and click Accessibility Options. On the General tab you will see two options: 1. Apply all settings to logon desktop 2. Apply all settings to defaults for new users. Make sure both of these options are UN-checked.

Check the user profiles. In Control Panel, open System and go to the user profiles tab. Make sure that the profiles all appear there and that they are local profiles. Also, is this computer in a domain? Kind of shooting in the dark here, need more information to know what the problem is.
