  • Win7 Performance Options | Visual Effects is a per-user setting!

    The Performance Options | Visual Effects settings are purely user-based and, when set, do not apply to all users of the respective server/workstation (2008/Win7).

    I noticed this when one of the OS builders kept setting this option to "Let Windows Choose...." but kept complaining that when other users logged on the setting would reset.

    I advised him that this was a user-based setting, as the changes are saved back to the user hive in the registry, and he asked how can we set this option for ALL users.

    All I can offer him is a group Policy based solution but is there a tweak that can be done in the OS so that when we deploy the image it is already set for all users? Thanks.

    You say "deploy the image" which suggests to me you're pushing out a customised installation rather than a "standard" one - is that right?

    In any case, if you've found a Group Policy setting to do this, that would probably be the easiest method.

      Thanks. We're using a combination of SCCM and VMware templates to deploy workstations and servers respectively. Would I assume that if I set this option via group policy for ALL users then it will increase the performance of a server? Thanks.
