Windows 7: Create batch file that will switch to a particular screen resolution?

Create batch file that will switch to a particular screen resolution?

So, hey Brink, I guess there's no way to create a batch file which will switch to a particular resolution?

I find myself switching back and forth from 720p to 1080p frequently. Separate 1080.bat and 720.bat command files would be peachy for me. Or I should quit kvetching, and be a mench about the two extra clicks, huh?

Of course if all software vendors realized we were using such high resolutions and adapted accordingly, I wouldn't be changing my resolution at all.

Cheers, as always.

I think if you get nircmd you can do it relatively easy.

I use nircmd myself to open and close my old dvd drive because the button broke, it seems to work well.
After you have it it's just a matter of making a shortcut using the formula they provide on that page.

Thanks, Maguscreed. Works a charm. BTW in W7 you can input a command line into the "location" bar of the add new shortcut wizard. But you knew that, I'll bet.

That's all shortcuts really are, icons that perform a command line/DOS command.
