Windows 10 – Unified Write Filter – Quick tip for the monitor resolution

Hi everyone

Today I wanted to share a quick tip if you want to allow your users to set their own resolution.

By default the unified write filter allow some registry key, but when a user set a resolution, that setting currently impact all users sessions, so that specific setting is inside the HKLM.

As the seeting can change depending on the terminal you use, I would give you the tip to find the correct keys.

I used process monitor, and I log what SystemSettings do in the registry when you click to change the resolution, in example;

As you can see, the registry key might be long, you can select to easilly copy it;

Inside the terminal after, add the exception for that registry key hive;

That will allow you user to set the resolution they want, and it will not come back to the default’s one.

Thanks for the reading
