    Creating a Shortcut for Display Settings


    I am looking for a way to create a Keyboard Shortcut that switches my display setup for Windows 10 So essentially I am looking for a command/macro/shortcut/bat file that when it's run Screen A becomes the Primary Screen and Screen B becomes the Secondary screen, and an opposite command/macro/shortcut/bat file that when it's run Screen B becomes Primary and Screen A becomes the main Do you know of a way to do this without installing additional programs?

    :)

    Creating a Shortcut for Display Settings

    Hi, this tenforums tutorial includes an option to create a shortcut which appears to meet your need.
    Create Display Switch shortcut in Windows 10

    (I searched the tutorials section for you).

    Having created a shortcut you can assign a hotkey.

    Hope that's what you're looking for.
     
  3. Display Settings Shortcuts Needed

    Because of my vision I need to quickly change display setting between 125, 150, and 175 as well shifting between portrait and landscape orientation -- all without having to call up the Display Settings page.

    Example. I need 175% to clearly see the file tree but that is too much for web browsing. There I use 125 or 150%.

    Some web pages do not adjust for portrait. Clipping from the right and left is common. The only solution is to turn the monitor, a 23 or so inch HP that pivots on a stand, and change the orientation in the Display panel settings. This is a BIG pain. Reducing Firefox magnification restores the edges, but the letters are too small to read easily.

    I have not been able to find a method for creating such shortcuts on the web.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    All comments and suggestions will be welcome.

    Creating Shortcuts with Batch File

    I've created a Batch file which calls on the following VB Script to be able to create a shortcut to my desktop:

    VB Script (named createLink.vbs):
    Code: set objWSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") set objFso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") ' command line arguments ' TODO: error checking sShortcut = objWSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(WScript.Arguments.Item(0)) sTargetPath = objWSHShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(WScript.Arguments.Item(1)) sWorkingDirectory = objFso.GetAbsolutePathName(sShortcut) set objSC = objWSHShell.CreateShortcut(sShortcut) objSC.TargetPath = sTargetPath objSC.WorkingDirectory = sWorkingDirectory objSC.Save[/quote] Batch File Example (for Windows Notepad):
    Code: @Echo off cscript createLink.vbs "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\Notepad.lnk" "C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe"[/quote] But after creating the shortcut using this method, I'm not able to assign a custom icon for the shortcut. I get the following error message when trying to do so:

    Any help and ideas on what I need to put into the VB Script and/or Batch File to be able to do this would be greatly appreciated! *Big Grin Creating a Shortcut for Display Settings :D

    Also, I know that I can simply do this by going to Start Menu\All Programs\Accessories\ right-clicking on Notepad and selecting Send to\Desktop (create shortcut). Easy enough for creating a single shortcut. But I need to create several multiple shortcuts and using this Batch/VBS method would really save me a lot of time in doing so.
