Display Changer Information

Publisher's Description:

Change resolution temporarily or permanently with command line switches, run a program, or restore original settings.

Display Changer changes the display resolution, runs a program, then restores the original settings. It can also change the resolution permanently and rearrange the monitors in a multiple-monitor setup. This is useful for games and home theater computers. I originally wrote this application for my children because they had programs that required 640x480 with 256 colors or 800x600 with 32-bit color or some other combination. I didn't expect my (then) 4-year-old to be able to change Windows display settings, so I wrote this program to do it automatically.

Display Changer changes your desktop width, height, color depth, and refresh rate (frequency) temporarily or permanently (via command line switches). Display Changer can run another application in a specific display resolution and return to the previous resolution when the application finishes. Command line switches let you alter only certain settings and choose the best refresh rate (or a specific one).

Switches
-test Does not apply new settings. Reports if the settings are valid or not.
-quiet Eliminates any output the application would normally make.
-force Try applying the settings even though Windows doesn't list them as available.
-more Indicates there will be further calls to specify settings for additional monitors. That also means the settings will be permanent—stored in the Registry (until you change them again). You need to use this switch when repositioning multiple monitors.
-apply Indicates there are no further calls and that all settings should be committed.
-reset Discards any settings stored with -more (before -apply is used). This can be useful when you're experimenting and change your mind about some settings.
-listmonitors Display a list of your current monitors, including the monitor name (e.g., "Dell 2007FP (Digital)"), display name (e.g., "\\.\DISPLAY1"), and current resolution and position. You can use the friendly name as long as it's unique among your monitors, but if your monitors are all the same model, you will need to use the device name. It will also display the word "primary" if the monitor is the main display.
-monitor={name} Specify which monitor to operate on. (If none is specified, the primary monitor is used.) Please note that this switch cannot be used to control where the application appears—that's something only the application can decide.

These parameters apply to the monitor specified with the -monitor switch (or to the primary monitor if none is specified).
-listmodes Display all available resolutions (width, height, color depth, and frequency). You can use the -width, -height, -depth, and -refresh switches to constrain the list to only those resolutions that match the specified value.
-width={ # | max } Set the width of the specified monitor. If you don't specify a value, it uses the specified monitor's current value, so you almost always need to specify the height as well. If you pass "max" as the value, it will select the largest value that also matches the other settings you specify.
-height={ # | max } Set the height of the specified monitor. If you don't specify a value, it uses the specified monitor's current value, so you almost always need to specify the width as well. If you pass "max" as the value, it will select the largest value that also matches the other settings you specify.
-depth={ # | max } Set the color depth of the specified monitor. If you don't specify a value, it uses the specified monitor's current value. If you pass "max" as the value, it will select the largest value that also matches the other settings you specify.
-refresh={ # | max } Set the refresh rate (display frequency) of the specified monitor. If you don't specify a value, it uses the specified monitor's current value. If you pass "max" as the value, it will select the largest value that also matches the other settings you specify.
-rotate={ left | right | up | down } If your display supports this, it will rotate the display to the specified orientation. (Note: The specified orientation indicates which way you have to rotate your monitor for the display to be right-side up.)
-fixedoutput={ default | stretch | center } Specify how the monitor will display the image. (This setting may not be supported by all monitors or video cards.) Default tells the monitor to perform its default behavior (either stretch or center). Stretch tells the monitor to stretch the image to fill the screen. Center tells the monitor to center the image at the specified resolution.
-interlaced Set the monitor to use an interlaced resolution. (This switch may not work as Microsoft has labeled it "invalid.")
-detach Remove the specified monitor from the display configuration. (Add a new monitor to the configuration with the -primary or -secondary switches.)
-primary Make the specified monitor the primary monitor. (You will also need to use the -more switch to either detach the current primary monitor or re-position it.)
-secondary Make the specified monitor a secondary monitor. (A secondary monitor is one that isn't primary; even the third or fourth monitors are secondary.) When making a monitor secondary (i.e., not primary), you will almost certainly also have to specify its new position (relative to the new primary monitor), using one of the below switches.
-left | -right | -top | -bottom Position the specified monitor on the specified side of the primary monitor. (This is a faster and easier way to position a monitor.) Alternatively, you can use the -lx and -ty switches.
-lx=# Position the specified monitor so its left side is at this x-coordinate (relative to the primary monitor). (Note that at least one pixel must be adjacent to another monitor for this to work.)
-ty=# Position the specified monitor so its top side is at this y-coordinate (relative to the primary monitor). (Note that at least one pixel must be adjacent to another monitor for this to work.)
