XP - Help altering screen resolution, screen saver and more

Recommended Posts


I want to write an AutoIt script that will set screen resolution, screen saver, power options etc. To do this manually one can:

From Desktop -> Right mouse click -> From context menu select Properties.

So far I have discovered how to script 'getting to the desktop' and right-mouse clicking:


Unfortunately I do not know how to then select 'Properties' from the context menu that appears. I cannot use the AutoIt Window Info tool either to grab the menu.

Can anyone help?

Welcome to the autoit forum :)

If you make some searches, you will find that you can change de resolution and maybe for the other things you need ;)
