My netbook running Windows 7 Starter seems to know when I attach or remove my external monitor. But I'm wondering if there is some way to attach a script or action when these events are detected by the OS.

I'd like to try to automate a few settings changes when switching between the 10.1" screen and the 22" screen, for instance making the task bar autohide on the small screen.

You could probably cook something up with Autohotkey. For example, this thread seems to be a good starting point.

Thanks Craig. While AutoHotKey doesn't have an event I can hook it does have the SetTimer command which lets me do polling and it has the SysGet command which retrieves multi-monitor info. I'll definitely be experimenting with this. – hippietrail May 13 '11 at 3:53
