Display Menu shows a status item in your menu bar that lets you change your display settings with a single click.
Depending on your display setup, you can set the screen resolution, toggle mirroring, and adjust the refresh rates.
You can enable additional features like Retina resolutions (on Retina Displays), AppleScript support, and resolution bookmarks as a paid upgrade.

------- 2.0 ---------

With version 2.0 we have added a number of great new features to our Display Menu software! From the large collection of emails we have received from you over the last year, we have distilled the three most wanted and, hopefully, most useful bits of added functionality and implemented them. While we are pretty happy how the new features have turned out, it was still a lot of work: apart from solving a number of technical difficulties, we went through a long design process to include the new functionality but, at the same time, keep Display Menu's UI streamlined and uncluttered. This is also the reason why we decided to bundle the *new* features only with the new 'Pro' version of Display Menu. The basic free version of version 2.0 still contains all the features from version 1.4; the Pro version is a paid upgrade that you can purchase from within the App.

almost fantastic

This is incredibly useful. I am running a mac mini for music only; headlessly off an old ipad as a VCN monitor and controller. So, I need to see an option for low resolution. I only upgraded from 10.6.6 in order that this machine would recognise a newer ipod, and there wee no options for low res until this wonderful app. The only issue is that every time I reboot or wake up te Mac, the icon for this app has gone and I have to recover itcfrom the app store. Any thoughts Id be really grateful. Gladly upgrade to the paid version if it resolves this issue.

No Support

App does exactly what is advertised, allowing greater control of screen resolution - Retina and non-Retina settings - from the Menu Bar on payment of small 'Pro' upgrade, (£1.99 in UK). However, don't expect any support from the Developer. He doesn’t reply to emails. So, use the app as it stands or don't use it - no advice available as far as I can see.

Exactly what I needed

I just needed a simple app that gave me control of the resolution of my Mac mini for screen sharing. I recently updated the OS, in doing so I lost all but one of the scaled screen options, leaving me with just 1280 x 1024. I downloaded this free app that gave me a range to choose from including 1920 x 1080 which was ideal for my 16:9 monitor… amazing how such small things in life can make you happy :)
