  1 Screenshot
newrez is a free and open source script designed especially for the Nautilus file manager to allow users to easily and quickly change a netbook’s screen resolution using the xrandr command-line tool found on many Linux operating systems that use the X.Org display server.

With newrez you can change your screen’s resolution on the fly, and you can also specify a resolution that is higher than your display's factory dimensions, which makes it the perfect tool for changing the screen resolution of a netbook, from 1024x600 to a scaled 1280x800, or higher.

To use it, just run the script and it will immediately display the current setting and default resolution of your screen. You can choose a new horizontal size and the script will automatically adjust the resolution, while keeping the aspect ratio untouched.
