How do I use this thing?

You must pass arguments to this program in order to use it. You may not double click on it, it will simply throw an error.

There are five arguments that are valid commands. You must use at least one, but ALL ARGUMENTS ARE OPTIONAL.

-batterycheck
-w
-h
-f
-d

-batterycheck

  • Basic command. Built to be simple for laptops with 144hz displays. If the program receives this, it will check if the computer is on battery power. If the computer is on battery power, it will set the refresh rate to 60hz. If it's connected to a charger, it will set the refresh rate to 144hz.

-w

  • Short for width. This allows you to specify a specific width to set the monitor to. This must be paired with a compatible height with the argument below.

-h

  • Short for height. This allows you to specify a specific height to set the monitor to. This must be paired with a compatible width with the argument above.

-f

  • Short for frequency. This allows you to set a refresh rate for the monitor. Standard high refresh rates are 144, 165, or 240.

-d

  • Short for display. This allows you to specify a specific display to manipulate. Pair with other arguments to set the monitor you want. Monitors start at 1 and are (as far as I know) reflected in the Windows settings (as shown below)

Examples

Setting all monitors to 144hz.

frequencyswitcher -f 144

Setting monitor 1 to 144hz.

frequencyswitcher -f 144 -d 1

Setting all monitors to 1920x1080 at 60hz.

frequencyswitcher -w 1920 -h 1080 -f 60

Suggestions For Use

I pair this with Task Scheduler to set my Razer Laptop's refresh rate to 60hz when it's not plugged in and 144 when it is automatically. See my blog post HERE for details on setting something like this up.
