Hi folks,

One of my staff has cataract issues (due to be sorted in a few months) but, for boring work reasons, needs to regularly change the screen resolution setttings on her PC. However, she is one of the less technologically savvy generation ;) and struggles to do this. Does anyone know of an app that can accomodate a simple click to toggle type interface. In other words; 800x600 *click* 1024x768.

And please don't start going on about how easy it is or what terrible screen res that is. :rolleyes: This is for someone with a genuine need to try and make their working life a bit simpler.

I use a simple Choice .bat file for our agents... just add the .bat to users start menu, they run the bat and pick a number, press enter... works a treat...

All you need is an app called Qres.exe (google it) on your DC or file server share to point to in the bat...


@echo off
:start
echo.
Echo Select Resolution...
echo.
echo Press 1 = High Res 1280/1024
echo.
echo Press 2 = Low Res 800/600
echo.
echo.
echo Press 0 = Exit
echo.
set choice=
set /p choice= Select a Choice:
if '%choice%'=='1' goto :choicew1
if '%choice%'=='2' goto :choicew2
if '%choice%'=='0' goto :exit
echo.
echo "%choice%" is not a valid entry Please try again.
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 2 >nul
CLS
goto start

:choicew1
\\ServerShareLocation\qres.exe /x 1280 /y 1024
CLS
goto start

:choicew2
\\ServerShareLocation\qres.exe /x 800 /y 600
CLS
goto start
:exit
exit
