There was a schooladmin who was searching for a solution for his problem:
He wants to start a certain application in a certain resolution.
After terminating this application he wants to return to the original resolution.

This can be done like this:

Create a batch file with the following lines:

multires.exe /800,600,16 /exit
start /w iexplore.exe
multires.exe /restore /exit

If the original resolution was 1024x768 then multires will change to 800x600. After terminating Internet Explorer, multires will restore to the original resolution.

Download multires.exe
