Resolution for user accounts

Hi,i'm wondering if I can change the resolution for my Windows XP Pro User account, but keep the other accounts the same? I've right clicked on desktop, then settings then changed my resolution, but when I log onto another account it stays the same, (I want my account to be 1024 x 768, whilst the other accounts 800x600)
Thanks for your help

Is possible

You can use a command line to change the resolution for each user account.

Download a utility

Write a BAT file as per requirement and put it in the Start Up folder of the respective user.

Hope this meets your requirement.
