  • I use a little batch file to turn off my secondary monitor, which is really the big-screen TV in the adjacent room, but I don't necessarily link it to another program.  The line is:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Dual Monitor Tools\DisMon.exe" -1p -2d -x

    How do I go about starting that second monitor up again?

    DisMon can only re-enable a monitor that the same instance of DisMon disabled.  If you run DisMon with the -x option, then this causes it to exit and not restore the monitor states.

    So in short, in your case you cannot use DisMon to re-enable the second monitor.  This is something I will address when I rewrite DisMon.
