Hyper-V Program Manager
I have a deep, dark secret to confess.
I run Windows in high DPI mode (this is where Windows displays larger text / icons). I do not know why, but as a “tech guy” I sense some deep shame over this. However, I just find my computer screens *so* much more readable in a high DPI mode.
It is because of this that I know that setting up high DPI inside Windows XP mode can be a bit tricky. The problem is that Windows XP mode uses Remote Desktop technology for integrated mode – and Remote Desktop does not allow you to change the DPI settings.
The way that you get this to work is:
At this stage you will be prompted to reboot the virtual machine. When it comes back up it should boot into integrated mode automatically – but now with high DPI enabled.
use high DPI too - so you're not alone ;)
Do I understand you right that with high DPI mode I'm not able to enable Integration Features for Windows XP mode if I would need it?
Hi Bjoern -
Not quite. You need to momentarily disable integration features in order to change the DPI - but once you have done that you can re-enable integration mode (it should re-enable automatically) and you will have the alternate DPI settings.
I've noticed that there's no way to have clipboard redirection when integration features are disabled. I'd sure like to have *JUST* clipboard redirection if possible.
Cool thanks! That is a quick way to install things that do not like RDP too!
Now, how do I get my 32bit color back!!! :)
You can get 32bit color with the Integration Components disabled.
