Thanks ohadts! Your new fixed app shows 0% load on my processor and a mere 1.7mb of memory running your app. 2 thumbs up!

Windows 7 Pro SP-1 v. 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601 64 Bit w/all updates

I am using a TrendNet TK-407K KVM and Switching between an HP 8200 Elite Ultra Slim Desktop (Main Board is probably a Lap Top Board) and an HP dc5800 MicroTower. The dc5800 always remains at the set 1920 x 1080 But the 8200 would always revert back to 1024 x 768. Thanks a million for your latest fix ohadts as it now remains at the set 1920 x 1080 60 when switching between computers. Your latest fix did it. Jack

Multi-Screen Version

Hi Ohadts,

is it possible for you to add support for multi-screen setups.

I love your fixed screen resolution app however, I have two-monitor setup.
It seems only change my primary screen to a fixed resolution.

Thanks in advance

Fixed Resolution app: Failed to change the resolution

I hoped the Fixed Resolution app would solve my problem of W7 defaulting to low-res Generic Non-PnP monitor when using a KVM switch. However each time I switch to W7, an Information box pops up saying "Description: Failed To Change The Resolution" and the resolution is still low-res. The same box appears if I set the resolution manually, when the app runs to try and change it back.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong, or settings I need to change?

Thanks in advance

Windows 7 Premium 32bit

The resolution on my monitor keeps switching from the recommended one I've set but keeps switching to a lower one. No matter what I do this keeps happening whenever I try to open MS Outlook to check for emails. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you so much for Fixed Resoution App!

You have no idea how hard I was looking for something like this! I was using a little program called QRES which allowed me to reset the resolution with a single click but not having to do anything at all is wonderful. And yes, it uses zero resources in Windows 10 Pro X64.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Glad to hear its helping.
I recently got myself a dual monitor setup, so maybe I'll add a support to that soon.
Anyone who's having a problems, the first things to check is:
1. That the app has administrative permission.
2. That you are setting the right resolution (one that your setup support) in the config.cfg file.
It can't be that hard to troubleshoot. like i said before, the app is very very basic...

Wow..this is perfect for what I needed. Again involving a KVM. My office box would always change resolution when I switched back from my gaming PC.

Thanks. This is the SHIZZLE!
