Changing Screen Resolution

3 posts in this topic

I would like to change the screen resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 before running a Windows program, then change it back once that program stops running. Is AutoIt capable of doing this?

One reason I can think of is that there are some kids games out there that won't run if the desktop screen is not set at a particular resolution regardless of whether or not you are running at a higher res. Maybe he wants to create a quick launcher for a program like that.

Another reason I can think of is for graphing. He may have a graph that is best seen at a minimum of 1024 * 768. Also some websites recommend a minimum res of 1024 * 768 so he may want to temporarily change res for that purpose.

I guess the list of reasons is huge but they are the common ones I can think of off the top of my head at this time.
