When I say OK I mean it! lol

so when I am changing my displays from one to the other, like extending the display or setting it to display on only display number 1 or whatever, how can i get it to stop asking me if I am sure I want to keep the settings

when I say OK I mean it!

Hello leftkidney,

This was designed to do that on purpose. This way if you were to not see anything on your display after applying, you would just need to wait the default 15 seconds before it automatically reverted back to your previous settings.

It could be a real screen saver.

Leftkidney, I believe Brink meant to say "This way if you were not to see anything on your display after applying....

True that and helped me a couple of times when tv-out didn't.

Oops. Thank you Wordsworth.

A bit of a mind, hand, and keyboard coordination error there.

No problem. It's said to err is human, and it works for me as I err a lot.

I dont care if I mess up and its not showing anything, how hard is it to just plug into a different port, or switch to another display - I dont care if I set it to the wrong resolution or refresh rate - I dont care if I have to reinstall windows, I just want it to do what I say when I press OK

if I press Apply then it can ask me no problem, but if I press OK thats what I want

is there something in the registry I can change to stop it from asking me this question?

I can have the recycle bin just delete things and not even ask me to confirm so why not this?

There's no known way that I'm aware of to do this.

Essenbe, then we have proof that Aliens may err as well.

Leftkidney, sorry but as Brink said a way to do this may not be found though I tried many different Internet searches.
