|I think you are going to be out of luck. These settings are contained in the registry ("registry" restores I have made prove this). That is, unless somebody can point you to the exact areas in the registry. I once tried and failed due to information overload.|
Swapping the whole registry to another machine would be a disaster. Doing so after re-install on the same machine would be almost as bad because often a messed up registry is part of the reason for re-install. The registry would also contain confusing entries to missing third party programs at the outset.
There is a possible workaround and that is to install the freebie "Autosizer". You would have to set it to keep your current settings. I use it because sometimes WIndows loses its settings. It's something of a black art but it works well once you get the hang of it.
You can then save it's data file (targets.dat) and re-install the program after the system was back running, replacing the new empty targets.dat file with the one you saved. Obviously if the screen size was different you would not get exactly the same results.
