Finding Out Video Resolution

by Feb 25, 2011

You can use this function if you would like to check the current video resolution on a local or remote system:

function Get-Resolution {
$ComputerName = '.'

process {
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_VideoController -ComputerName $Computername |
Select-Object *resolution*, __SERVER

When you run Get-Resolution, you will retrieve your own video resolution. By adding a computer name, you will find the same information is returned from a remote system (provided you have sufficient privileges to access the remote system).
