Administration, Group Policy Preferences, Registry

Modify Performance Options and Visual Effects via Registry

Had a situation where I needed to modify the Visual Effects, under Performance Options, for a customer.

Create a Registry Item in Group Policy Preference under the User Configuration.


You have a number of options for the data value:

VisualFXSetting=dword:00000000 = Let Windows choose what’s best

VisualFXSetting=dword:00000001 = Adjust for best apperance

VisualFXSetting=dword:00000002 = Adjust for best performance

VisualFXSetting=dword:00000003 = Custom

Add the Apply once option and the end user can modify as required.
