Editors' review

As the name implies, this simple executable lets you easily change your screen's resolution. Resolution Changer SX2 adds an icon to your system tray that has a menu with the program's options. You can instantly apply one of four preset resolutions or go to a secondary menu with more options, and the preset can be changed to whatever four suit your needs best. Resolution Changer SX2 lets you change the color depth as well, from 16 colors to 32 bit. There isn't a help file, but none is needed. This program is easy-to-understand and works quickly, removing a number of steps from the traditional Windows method. Anyone looking for a shortcut to changing screen resolution will be pleased with this freeware program.

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    See above.

    EDIT: 1st pre-set is null, use the second, third, and fourth options instead of 1, 2, 3, & 4.

    "Just what I needed!"

    September 23, 2009   |   By raylo

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    Simple. Does exactly what I need.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    My new laptop has a 1920x1080 widescreen display. I like to run it in this native resolution but some apps, like Photoshop Elements SE become unuseable since the menus and icons get too tiny. This app lets me *quickly* downshift to the next lowest resolution... without going through all the usual rigamarole. Good work, guys!

    "Small, simple, great freeware utility"

    September 21, 2009   |   By bubb1_3

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    Small, simple, easy to use and free ware.

    Cons

    No keyboard shortcuts. The menu stays up until you make a selection or select cancel from the menu.

    Summary

    The menu stays up until you make a selection or select cancel from the menu. I would rather the menu go away when you click anywhere on the screen, as well as when a selection is made. However, this is not a deal-breaker for me - I still like this program.

    "WELL DONE UTILITY"

    February 06, 2009   |   By GATOR-HATER

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    Does what it says, quickly and (in my experience) without a flaw.

    Cons

    None. Quite satisfied.

    Summary

    I don't know why I thought I needed this. Truth is, I seldom change resolution. BUT if you do, this is the cat's meow. No more haggling w/Control Panel, no more "You
    have 15 seconds before this tape self distructs". Super software, if you have the
    need to change resolution, GET THIS!

    "Great, but..."

    November 12, 2008   |   By Frungi

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    This is a fairly elegant program, you just run it and choose the desired resolution/color setting from the menu. I'm a college student, and I've used it on the lab computers at school since the Display Properties are restricted to administrators.

    Cons

    You can't use the arrow keys in the menu; If you want to scroll to the bottom of the list of resolutions, you have to hold the mouse button down.
    Also, it says version 1.0.8, but the download is actually 1.0.7.

    "Coolness!!!"

    June 09, 2008   |   By bighomer

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    Simple, easy, and it works great. Does what it says.

    I like programs I don't have to install, especially ones for simple tasks such as this.

    Cons

    It can't work from a hotkey (that I know of), but then, that's why I have AutoHotkey.

    "simple and easy"

    February 24, 2007   |   By lloydpowell23

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    It works! If you need a taskbar icon that you can click and then choose your resolution from the menu, this is do that perfectly.

    So this is a five star product. Does what it does great and no bloat.

    By the way, I am running it in Vista, works great!

    "Great Freeware Product!"

    September 14, 2006   |   By avidrpggamer

    Version: Resolution Changer SX2 1.0.8

    Pros

    Personally I don't know why download.com gave it such a low rating. Sure it a very simple program, but that is the point. It needs to be small and do what it does: change resolutions. Anything else would make it bulky. I give it 5 Stars, for each of use, ease of installation. And amazingly 'small' file-size after install. (It also take up almost nothing in memory.!)
