I shuffle my laptop from work and home everyday, when i am at work it plugs into a docking station with two monitors, and at home i use the laptop screen and a second screen attached to the vga port of the laptop. I almost everytime i turn the computer on have to go into my display settings and switch the location of the screens for an extended desktop, this really drives me nuts. is their a batch file that can be written to do this with one click.
