Default Allow users to change DPI...

The environment I work in requires that all users be restricted users. This then means that we have to adjust settings to allow for them to perform certain tasks. One of the settings that I have to figure out is allowing them to change the DPI setting from the advanced section of display properties.

I have been tracing folder and registry security restrictions all over the machine, and have run into a dead end. I'm hoping someone will be able to assist me in finding a solution.

and that has anything to do with what I asked? I'm not looking for a security solution. We have one. I'm looking for the settings to allow a normal user to change the DPI settings of the machine. This is a machine function, and so they need to have access to protected areas. Specifically the Fonts folder, the system.ini file and some registry keys, but as of yet, I have not been able to get it to work. I'm looking for help on that, not a suggestion of another product.

Thank you.
