|Format:||MONITOR [/= /AP:x:y /AS:x:y /B:n /C:n /D:Color:n /FC /FD /G:Color:n /N:n /S /T:n]|
MONITOR can display or change monitor capabilities, including:
Display area position
Display area size
Reset factory color defaults
Reset factory defaults
Save to nonvolatile storage
Not all settings are supported by all monitors. If you don't enter any arguments, MONITOR will display the current configuration of all physical monitors. Depending on the options and the monitor hardware, MONITOR can take several hundred milliseconds to return.
The MONITOR command will fail if the monitor does not support DDC/CI.
Set the second monitor to a brightness of 90 and a contrast of 75:
monitor /n:1 /b:90 /c:75
|/=||Display the MONITOR command dialog to help you set the command line options. The /= option can be anywhere on the line; additional options will set the appropriate fields in the command dialog.|
|/AP:x:y||Set the horizontal (x=0) or vertical (x=1) position of the monitor's display area. y is the new width or height. Increasing the horizontal position moves the display area to the right; decreasing it moves the display area to the left. Increasing the vertical position moves the display area up, decreasing it moves the display area down.|
|/D:Color:n||Sets a monitor's red, green, or blue drive value. Drive settings are used to adjust the monitor's white point (drive is also called black level). Color is either RED, GREEN, or BLUE; n is the drive value (usually 0-100). You can have multiple /Drive arguments in a single MONITOR command.|
|/G:Color:n||Sets a monitor's red, green, or blue gain value. Gain settings are generally used to adjust the monitor's white point. Color is either RED, GREEN, or BLUE; n is the gain value (usually 0-100). Changing the gain settings can change the color temperature. You can have multiple /Gain arguments in a single MONITOR command.|
