Windows 7: Can someone help me make a .bat file?

Thanks zay, that works for now. I still gotta figure out how to move the start menu to the top when I change orientation.

It's gonna mess with my winamp global hotkeys but I'll work around it. I was messing aroud on eee forums for my netbook and someone did something similar and assigned them to the user definable hardware keys on there.

Thanks. Yea I think the orientation changing is for laptop hardware, I don't recall seeing it on my desktop build.

If anyone knows a script to move the start bar it would be much appreciated!

Man you sure are picky, lol. When your orientation changes, just drag the task bar. Also, if you don't want to use hot keys, just use the tray icon to rotate the screen.

I think HP has a turning screen. Hook your laptop up to that and use it. It automagically fixes the orientation. It's right here: HP GW458AA#ABA HP w2207 22" Wide LCD Monitor

EDIT: After looking at it, I think I'll buy one! That's too cool!

Try this tool.

I have that option on my desktop - although I am not sure why as neither of my X213Ws have the ability to 'rotate', although I could theoretically *mount* them sideways.

Ummm, telling the poster to buy a new one is not really much of a solution to getting the current one working, it is?

Do I just throw that in a .vbs file and run it?

From my very shallow understanding of coding, that looks like it'll shift the taskbar for me?

I'll try it when I get home, thanks.

No problem. You may have to play around with the text, though.

You can put it in a .bat first, if that doesn't work, go with .vbs
