  1. IF 2nd screen present THEN automatically change resolution of one of the screens


    I sometimes run two screens lets call them screen 1 and screen 2. I want my setup to automatically change the resolution of screen 2 IF it detects two screens are present, otherwise I'd like screen 2 to be on a different resolution when used on its own. I do not want the resolution of screen 1 to change at any point.


    Any ideas?

    :)
