newrez is a free, single-file, graphical and open source software designed especially for GNU/Linux operating systems, allowing users to easily and quickly change a netbook’s screen resolution in real time.

Based on the xrandr command-line tool

The newrez script it actuallty a single file tool based on the well known xrandr command-line tool found on many Linux kernel-based operating systems that use the X.Org (X Window System) display server.

Change the screen resolution on the fly

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.

Getting started with newrez

First, you will have to download the latest release form either the project’s website (see the homepage link at the end of the article) or via Softpedia, save the archive on your Home directory and uncompress it using any archive manager utility.

Right click on the ‘newrez’ file, go to Preferences, access the Permission tab, and make sure the the ‘Allow executing file as program’ option is checked. Then, simply double click the script to open it.

A dialog will be displayed, showing the current settings, as well as the default resolution of your monitor. You can choose a new horizontal size and the script will automatically adjust the resolution, while keeping the aspect ratio untouched.
