    Screen resolution

    Does any body know how to change the windows XP screen resolution using shell command. Is there any command which we could change or any parameter which need to be changed in any file under windows directory.

    The only way I can think of doing it was with microsoft's SCRIPTIT utility. It used to come with windows NT 4 Server, or was downloaded separately. Can't recall. But since it was basically a type of sendkeys scripting utility, it may work with windows xp.

    I don't think windows shell commands allows you to do that.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
