Tweak Registry to Get More Resolution

Registry Tweak
Our limited screen resolution is annoying sometimes, moreover if we use Windows 8 that needs 1024x768 of screen resolution to run Metro Style Application. I haven't found the way to force run Metro Style in low resolution, but I know how to increase the system resolution:

  1. Open Registry Editor
  2. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / Current Control Set / Control / Class / {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} / 0000
    Open DWORD : Display1_DownScalingSupported change value to 1

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / Current Control Set / Control / Class / {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} / 0001
    Open DWORD : Display1_DownScalingSupported  change value to  1

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / Current Control Set / Control / Class / {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} / 0002
    Open DWORD : Display1_DownScalingSupported  change value to  1

    (Ignore if the keys is not available, or you can make it yourself)
  3. Restart your computer
  4. Check the screen resolution
This method is depending on the Graphic Card you are using and can lead to broken components, I am not responsible for any damage :D

  2. Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
