I'm desperate. I'm having to run my laptop through the tv, which will only recognise one resolution. I'm having to change the res without being able to see a damn thing. Basically, I need the most simple keystrokes to get me through the trial and error process until i find the right res! Did no one foresee this problem? Someone please help before I in mad!

Basically, you can create a batch file to change the resolution. After the file is created, you should create a shortcut to that file > then right click on the shortcut > click on the Shortcut tab > and then in Shortcut Key, hit the hotkey that you want.

I'm looking into how to create a batch file now.

Sorry it took so long:

Go here and download the file:
https://www.naughter.com/qres.html

Extract it to:
C:\Reschange

Don't worry, there won't be any files or program running in the background.

Which resolution do you want?

In one of my batch files to switch to 1366x768, the contents of the batch file look like this:
C:\Reschange\Release\resswitch.exe 1360 768 32 0

So, if you wanted 1024x768, it would like this:
C:\Reschange\Release\resswitch.exe 1024 768 32 0
