Probably an easy solution, Here's the situation: shared company computer, one guy is younger, likes the smaller icons, screen resolution of 1024 x 768, the other user older, cant see the smaller icons that well, likes it @ 800 x 600,
Problem when the older user logs in to his windows after younger has been logged into his own account, & changed resolution, the resolution has changed for the other accounts also!

Is there a way around this, without affecting both accounts??

I would leave the resolution at the larger size for both and customize each user's account by right-clicking on the Desktop, choose Properties then click the Appearance tab. Click Advanced button. Under Item: select Icon and change icon size to suit you. Click OK. When you log out from your account, it should save your settings for your account. Hope I got that right. Been wrong before! LOL
