Problem - Office pc

In april 2019, I have a similar problem with my Office pc. Whenever the pc restarts, the display is wrong (too high). For this problem, the SetScreenResolution.ps1 script works as desired.

I made an OsSetDisplay.ps1 script that calls the SetScreenResolution.ps1 twice, once setting the resolution to 1440x900, then back to 1680x1050, and added a shortcut to this script to the Startup folder:

C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command "& { . C:\Tools\OS\SetScreenResolution.ps1; Set-ScreenResolution -Width 1440 -Height 900 }"
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command "& { . C:\Tools\OS\SetScreenResolution.ps1; Set-ScreenResolution -Width 1680 -Height 1050 }"

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 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!
