Monitor Resolution change tools?
« on: March 31, 2007, 10:43:29 PM »
Hi,
Can anyone recommend a tool for quickly changing video settings?  I have an Nvidia setup and their latest software - which includes some desktop utilities for doing this.  But I stopped loading that because it seemed unwieldy.  And I usually can usually find some free/donationware that works better.

I plan to try Reso from bcheck.net when their server is back online.
I tried http://www.southbaypc.com/FastRes/ but it lists every setting (see image) - and I'd prefer a smaller list of resolution optoins - maybe just a few I choose to display.

Update.... I just found ToggleRes which looks good for me - it toggles between 2 res settings you predefine  http://users.forthne...grams/toggleres.html

Also found WIRM2.  http://www.prometheu...uk/noshok/index2.htm

Thanks for any other recommendations

I use ATI Tray Tools myself, I don't have an nvidia card but RivaTuner may let you change resolution from the tray icon if it's similar.
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

PowerPro can change resolutions, and toggle between them...

That's strange they don't have a decent app like ATI Tray Tools for nvidia cards.

if you're into command-line, try using Qres

Yeah, QRes you could setup to work on a dock or with SlickRun or FARR.

(gotta keep mentioning FARR or Mouser gets angry!)
