Doesn't Work

Neither approach works. If you type a value less than 100%, Vista changes it back to 100%. If you change the value of HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\AppliedDPI to less than 96 DPI, Vista changes it back to 96 DPI when you log on.

It's incredibly stupid that I can no longer change my custom font DPI to the actual DPI of my monitor. I like to have a 10-point font actually display in 10-point size on my monitor. I could do it on XP, but it's impossible in Vista.
