Windows 10: Need to get this new DPI value from the registry (Windows 10)

    Need to get this new DPI value from the registry (Windows 10)


    Hello,
    How can I get this value:
    http://prntscr.com/8ck5rg

    From the registry?

    I know that in this case I need also to know what is the primary display or how to get only the primary display value because I want to get the value that set only for the primary display..


    The key "LogPixels" in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    Is no longer relevant for me in Windows 10.


    Thank you!

    Thank you,
    I saw that AppliedDPI changed to 96 after I changed it to 100 in this GUI after I re-logged in to my user.

    I will keep testing this.. I hope that this Key is only about the main screen otherwise it will cause a mess

    EDIT:
    After several tests, I confirm it - it's only about the display that set to be the main display - which is good for me.

    Yes, changing any of the display metrics seems to require a sign out/sign in.

    Glad it worked out for you...
