There are softwares which help us to do the same things. Although, doing it manually is a great way to learn how the things work in our operating system.

You are right Neeraj! There are plenty of software's these days to change / optimize display settings, but the real joy is trying to do it our self and to learn the new tricks... But still, software will make the work more easier for those who don't have much idea about the OS administration / configuration.
