You need to use the GetSystemMetrics, SystemParametersInfo API to handle all of these...

to retrieve all the info, use

GetSystemMetrics(CM_CXFULLSCREEN or CM_CYFULLSCREEN);

or

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_GETWORKAREA, 0, YourRect, SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE);

to set the work area etc...

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETWORKAREA, 0, YourRect, SPIF_UPDATEINIFILE or SPIF_SENDCHANGE);

Check the win32.hlp file for more info on this

Perhaps you should look at winAPI EnumDisplaySettings and ChangeDisplaySettings, too.
