How to change resolution automatically
American Greetings requires a resolution of 1056X768 to operate correctly in "Create & Print". I had trouble until I went to this reduced resolution. The recommended resolution of this computer, Asus P53E, is 1366X768 which I like better.
I would like to create a shortcut that does this;

Shortcut start
change resolution to 1056X768
Ecards, Birthday Ecards, Printable Cards, Greeting Cards | American Greetings (
When AG closes change resolution back to 1366X768
Shortcut end.
I don't no how to do this. Any help?

you could try using q-res
with the following batch setup

::save as a .bat after posting to notepad, with all files selected

QRes.exe /x:1056 /y:786
::rename the next line to call whatever.exe(whatever being the name of the exe.)
call americangreetings.exe
::I believe by doing the call statement it should hang the batch file until american
::greatings (or whatever your programs .exe is )closes
QRes.exe /x:1366 /y:768

Thanks, Mike.
The batch file sounds reasonable.
Downloaded and extracted the file suggested. Now I don't know what to do with it.
Have you used it before? The author sure didn't make it user friendly..
