Set-DisplayResolution

Changes the display resolution for a Server Core server.

Syntax

Set-DisplayResolution
   [-Width] <Object>
   [-Height] <Object>
   [-Force]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-DisplayResolution cmdlet changes the display resolution for Windows ServerĀ® 2012 in Server Core mode. Specify both the width and the height in pixels. Unless you use the Force parameter, the cmdlet prompts you before it changes the settings. You can use the Get-DisplayResolution cmdlet to view the current resolution.

For more information about Server Core mode, see Configure and Manage Server Core Installations.

Examples

Example 1: Set resolution

PS C:\> Set-DisplayResolution -Width 1920 -Height 1200
setres will now attempt to apply the following display settings: 
  Width:          1920
  Height:         1200
Your screen may go blank for a moment. If your screen remains blank, press N
or restart your computer to revert the display settings. 
Do you want to save the display settings? 
[Y,N]?_

This command sets the display resolution to a width of 1920 pixels and a height of 1200 pixels. The system prompts you for confirmation.

Example 2: Set resolution without confirmation

PS C:\>Set-DisplayResolution -Width 1024 -Height 768 -Force
setres will now attempt to apply the following display settings: 
  Width:          1024
  Height:         768
The new display settings have been saved.

This command sets the display resolution to a width of 1024 pixels and a height of 768 pixels. Because the command uses the Force parameter, it makes the change without prompting you.
