Windows 7: Help needed in creating a script to change certain Windows 7 settings

Help needed in creating a script to change certain Windows 7 settings

Morning, afternoon and or evening ladies and gentlemen.

Glad to be a part of the forums.

As the title of the thread implies, I would like some help in creating a script or scripts to change a few settings in windows instantaneously with a single keystroke, command or perhaps using specific program.

To elaborate, I am running my main monitor for my rig at my computer desk, and also have an additional 42'' HDTV at the end of my bed which is connected to my PC via a HDMI cable. After work for instance, if i'm not in the mood to game at my desk, I like to lay in bed with a wireless keyboard and mouse and chill out. However, what annoys me about this is that when I use this TV, to be able to see the screen properly I must change the resolution to 1280 x 800, also I have to change my sound output to the TV, and lastly I have to crank up the track speed of the built in track pad on my wireless keyboard or else it's really really slow and frustrating.

Essentially, what I want to know is, is there a way that I can set up a script or use some sort of program that will allow me to change all of these setting instantaneously with the press of a key? Is this possible?

Would appreciate some help on this, thank you in advance.

If it has all the settings then perhaps you can use Autohotkey to click what you need.

Welcome to the Seven Forums, Rancolin.

You can try this little tool for the display change...
Display Changer 12noon
...it will also start the game after changing the display resolution.

There is a contact form on that website. Perhaps the programmer could add some basic mouse stuff to the Display Changer or Display Changer II tools.

You are welcome.

Depending on how many items you keep on your Windows desktop, you might also like this tool:
Desktop Restore
It saves/restores the location of things on your desktop.
I sometimes have to use it after changing screen resolutions.
