  • My laptop 2880x1620 screen is too high a resolution for many applications.  The next lower one offered is a miserable 2048x1152, a drop of 30%.  I need something in between.

    Control panel Screen Resolution does not allow that.  So I plan to run control.exe with parameter desk.cpl which in turn needs other parameters.

    Where can I find the parameters for desk.cpl?

    Would desk.cpl allow the setting of popular resolutions such as 2560x1440, or will it filter out anything that does not match its own list as seen on Screen Resolution?

    This will become a massive problem as 3K screens become popular.
