    I assume you mean programmatically, rather than the obvious "click and drag" the arrow?
    If so, which API would you like?
    Win32, DirectX, ....
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If win32 (like many of your other threads) than you may look into:

    EnumDisplaySettings
    ChangeDisplaySettings

    You have to define a DEVMODE structure, not really define it but set the values of it's members. Then you will have a handle on it and pass that as the first argument. Then just pass any flags you want. DEVMODE structure

    Visual Basic example of changing resolution with the API. Just for concept at least.
