Today I was testing some things in my virtual 2008 Server Core. When you are browing through regedit, it’s easy to have a bigger screen resolution. You can change the screen resolution in the register, using regedit.
– Log into Server Core with an admin account
– Run Regedit from the command prompt and modify the following reg keys:
– you will find one or more GUIDs. Expand each one to find the one with a VolatileSettings subkey under the 0000 subkey (usually the first GUID)
– Double-click the 0000 key and modify the DefaultSettings.XResolution and DefaultSettings.YResolution values to set your resolution
– Close Regedit
Logoff and log back on to receive the new resolution settings.
