I have a triple monitor set up that I have configured through my NVidia card to display as one giant 5760x1080 screen. However for some tasks I find it best to let the 2 side monitors go to sleep and use 1 monitor at 1920x1080; especially for programs that don't work well with my widescreen setup.
For example, some programs I use default to full screen on initialization which stretches everything out, which results in a dizzying, awkward look. Luckily, some programs can be configured to run in a set resolution, but there are a handful of programs I use regularly that don't have such resolution options natively.
Question: To find a robust solution to this problem, I want to find the fastest way to change the resolution of the windows 10 OS itself. That way no matter which program I run, it will work as expected. The question is how do I do that? I'm hoping there is a command prompt line I can run or something else that is very fast. Currently I'm pointing and clicking as fast as I can in this manner:
Desktop > Display Settings > Resolution > 1920 x 1080 (then I have to click "Keep Changes")
Over a while, the time I spend pointing and clicking is adding up. That's why I would like to find a hot key or other fast method.
