How Can I Automate Settings Changes?
In my man cave, my PC is right beside me and (2 feet away) to my right, is its 24" Monitor which I darken using the "blank" .scr and put into standby after 5 min to make watching the 65" DLP (10' in front of me) more pleasing.
That said, when I use my PC to play video on the HT system, I have to go through a bunch of settings to switch and switch back. I cannot blank or sleep the monitor because it would affect the 65" as well. I always use solid black as a desktop background with no icons on it.
I'd like to automate the following:
1) Change sound output default to Digital (from Speakers)
2) Invoke Catalyst Control Center Preset (to extend Desktop to the DLP)
3) End "Sidebar" task
4) Set Task bar to "Auto Hide"
The above accomplishes making the monitor as dark as possible without turning it off. (same as "blank" screensaver)
I need to be able to do these tasks and undo them with a simple click. I'm sure I could write a batch file using "echo|y abc123.reg" to auto-enter registry changes. What I need to know is what registry keys to export.
Any help would be most appreciated.
