In Vista when I select Control Panel> Adjust screen resolution I get the Display Setting Dialog box that allows me to select my monitors and then select the Resolution and/or if I want to make the monitor my main monitor/Extend the desktop onto this monitor and to Drag the icons to match the physical location of my monitors. All of this works fine... Except when I want to accept what I have done. I do this with the OK or the Apply buttons.

When either of these buttons are pressed the screen goes blank, there is a pause and one sees another screen that asks that you confirm these setting. For a time prior to a recent Microsoft Vista update, I had about 5 seconds to confirm my settings, but recently the time needed to complete this procedure has expanded and I now only get this screen for less than a second and I cannot press the necessary button fast enough to accept the new settings and the operation is defeated and the screen goes back to its original settings. Is there any way to extend this timeout or any other way to configure my multiple (three) monitors????

Thanks
