Powershell Change Screen Resoultion

In Server 2012 there is a install feature called Minimal GUI that removes Windows Explorer and Internet explorer.  You get a GUI but only server manager and a dos prompt.  In my case a new VM had too small of resolution, and in MinGui you cannot open control panel, or right click to change it.

PowerShell to the rescue:
  1. go to the DOS window
  2. Type PS to enter PowerShell
  3. Type Set-DisplayResolution -width 1440 -height 900 -force

All Done
