bat file to change between monitors

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i have a monitor and a tv connected to my pc
normally its set only to show on the monitor
but when i go to watch a film i change it to only on the tv
to do this i have to right click on desktop go screen resolution pick which display i want then click ok then click ok again when i brings up the little window
i would like to do all that with just one click on a bat file
does anyone know how?

I don't know about the bat file, but couldn't you just enable the second display (your TV) and then use whatever program you use to watch movies? When i had a setup like that with my 24" monitor and 42" TV I would use the Windows key and P to extend the desktop to my TV, then launch Media Center or PowerDVD to watch a movie. As long as you close the programs on that display, they will always launch there provided the secondary display is enabled first.

So in short, Windows Key + P to extend desktop, launch desired movie watching program, and either turn off your monitor, or have it go to sleep.

But you can just extend it when you want to watch something on your TV, then put it back the same way.

You can do that do I think with the Windows key + P. Mine would be between the Projector or Computer. Not sure why it says projector other than maybe the type of connection it uses, but those were the two options for my connected monitors at that time.
