right now I'm hooking up my laptop to an external monitor, and basiclly i want to mirror the view for both my laptop and my monitor. However, when I do this option, it does not let me change the resolution of the monitor, and I was wondering if there is anyway I can change this. Thanks

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you're mirroring displays, the two monitors are displaying the exact same thing. Therefore, they can't display the exact same thing in two resolutions.

Sorry.
