Vista Display Settings Shortcut

Leave a comment

I have a Lenovo w500 and it loves to have display driver issues but it also likes to change display settings whenever anything changes in the environment, like when I connect a monitor or projector, dock my computer, or look at it wrong. So the fact that I had to click through several menus to get to display settings every time really kind of peeved me.

I decided that it is too much hassle to try to fix the root problem (windows) and I made a desktop shortcut instead.

Here is how you can make your own or you can download it here:
Display Settings

Right Click on the Desktop
Left Click on New >
Left Click on Shortcut
Type the following in the text box that says Type the location of the item:

control.exe desk.cpl,@0,3

Click [Next]
Type the following in the text box that says Type a Name for this shortcut:

Display Settings

Click [Finish]
And you are done.
