    Connect to projector resolution

    Hey All,

    Have any of you hit the issue where you connect a laptop to a projector and the primary display resolution shrinks. I know its easy to adjust but I want to force the resolution to its highest when a projector is plugged in.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ross

    You on DVI or VGA? I know normally DVI will set the laptop to a smaller res, just because the projector can't support that high a res. Whats the cap on the projector?

    I agree with @Steve21, the native resolution of the projector is usually the limiting factor...if you set the laptop above that then at best the image will be poor quality and at worst the projector will refuse to display...

    had the same problem spent agaes trying different things but never found a solution for it, so we have just left it to shrink when staff connect their laptops.
