Re: [XPHome] Display Settings Never Hold

Shutdown problems, maybe. Anything in the event log?

Do the settings hold across a logoff/logon (no shutdown) sequence? That would be a useful piece of diagnostic data to have. It might even "fix" the issue by saving the settings the way you want, so you don't notice they're not getting saved at shutdown (though if it were my PC I'd still want to know why).

Where in the event log should I look? Application or System?

You know, I never used the logon/logoff sequence since I'm the only user. I use no password, so if I try it will it automatically log me back on?

Both. But 'system' seems more likely. (It'll probably make it easier if you use the 'filter' mechanism to show only the non-informational events)

Nope, I think you'll have to select the only user. But it doesn't matter if it doesn't - the object is to go through a logoff sequence (which is when the 'saving' happens), not to remain logged off.
