Win10 1709

No longer needed, since I bought a new monitor - no longer a tv, used as a monitor (SilverCrest HOME TECH LCD-TV 60cm schermdiagonaal, serienr. F47012000248), but a plain vanilla pc monitor: LG 27MP38VQ!

Solution [solved] - win10 1703

rem Use %SendKeys% to send keys to the keyboard buffer
set SendKeys=CScript //nologo //E:JScript "%~F0"
%windir%\System32\DisplaySwitch.exe /clone
REM ping -n 5 -w 1 > NUL
ping -n 2 -w 1 > NUL
%SendKeys% "echo off{ENTER}"
%windir%\System32\DisplaySwitch.exe /external
REM ping -n 5 -w 1 > NUL
ping -n 2 -w 1 > NUL
%SendKeys% "echo off{ENTER}"

Solution [solved] - win10 1607

Create the following shortcut in Windows 10:
%windir%\System32\DisplaySwitch.exe /external

This results in the "Second screen only" projection, but as side effect, the right display settings are detected!

Solution [not ok]


Copy the following PowerShell -script to a folder of your choice (e.g. C:\Windows\System32):

Create a shortcut to that PowerShell -script:
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command "& { . C:\Windows\System32\SetScreenResolution.ps1; Set-ScreenResolution -Width 1920 -Height 1080 }"
  • display
  • detect
  • advanced display settings
  • resolution
  • 1920
  • 1080
  • FullHD
