    Screen PRESETS - Radeon Crimsion Driver - icon for Additional Settings


      With the new Radeon Crimson Drivers, the former icon which gave us the option of setting presets more easily is gone.


      But there is a way to get the icon back to more easily change presets without having to open Additional Settings app.


      The icon is a shortcut of CCC.exe - which should be located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\CNext\CCCSlim\CCC.exe" if you are using Windows 64-bit


      Just right-click on the file CCC.exe, choose to pin to the Task Bar.


      Now that the icon is there, you can right-click on the icon, and you will see the list of the presets that you have created, thus you can more easily change presets at will.


      I hope that helps.

          Good advice.  Thank you for sharing it.


          There is also a way to have the Radeon Additional Settings entry available via the right-click context menu on the desktop:




          You get the above by clicking the pin icon in the Radeon Additional Settings dialog:




          There actually is a way to pre-load particular Preset at logon, though you have to get a little bit geeky...  Code a small batch file like this, substitute the name of your Preset for "Preset Name" (keep the quotes) and make it run at logon by putting a shortcut to it in your start menu Startup folder:


          ::  Seems to be needed twice with a bit of a delay.
          "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\CNext\CCCSlim\CLI.exe" Start Load profilename="Preset Name"
          TIMEOUT 12
          "C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\CNext\CCCSlim\CLI.exe" Start Load profilename="Preset Name"
          TIMEOUT 2
          ::  Now kill the apps, as they don't seem to be needed for normal desktop operations.
          TASKKILL /F /IM CCC.exe
          TASKKILL /F /IM MOM.exe


          Lastly, as implied by the last two commands above, it is not actually necessary that the control panel components run all the time.  For example, cnext.exe does NOT need to be running in order for your desktop to work.  For those who prefer to minimize system impact and have the most resources available possible, one can use Autoruns and eliminate the auto-start of these programs.
