Dual Monitor Tools ------------------ Dual Monitor Tools is a collection of tools for users running multiple monitor setups on Windows. Currently the tools available are SwapScreen, DualWallpaper, DisMon and DualSnap. Dual Monitor Tools is free and has been released under the GPLv3 license. For further information on usage of the tools, visit http://dualmonitortool.sourceforge.net Release 1.5 ----------- The release consists of the following files: SwapScreen.exe The swap screen tool DualWallpaper.exe The wallpaper setting tool DisMon.exe Disables secondary monitors. DualSnap.exe The screen capture tool CHANGES.txt List of changes COPYING.txt GPLv3 license README.txt This file Requirements ------------ Dual Monitor Tools should run on any implementation of Windows that has .NET 2.0 installed. Obviously you should have two or more monitors attached to the computer. Installation ------------ There is currently no installer, so you need to copy the files yourself to a suitable directory. SwapScreen ---------- This is a small tool that when started resides in the System Tray. It allows you to assign hotkeys for various actions. The main hotkey allows you to move the active window to the next screen. This will also work if the active window is a maximised window. There are also some hotkeys to emulate functionality that is built into Windows 7, such as minimising and maximising the active window, so users of XP and Vista can also use these. Further hotkeys allow all windows on a particular monitor to be minimised and to rotate the contents of the monitors. This tool also allows you to restrict mouse movement between screens. DualWallpaper ------------- Dual Wallpaper simplifies the process of using images as wallpaper on multiple monitor setups You can have a single image which is spread across all of your monitors, or you can have different images on each monitor, or if you have enough monitors, you could say have an image spread across 2 of your monitors with another image displayed on the third monitor. It also correctly sets the wallpaper when your primary monitor is not your leftmost or topmost monitor. DisMon ------ This allows you to change the enabled monitors and/or to change the primary monitor while an application is run, with the monitor state being restored when the application has finished running. The application to run is specified as the first parameter to DisMon. Any further parameters are passed onto the application. Remember to enclose any paths or parameters within double quotes if they contain spaces. There is also a GUI to disable monitors and/or change the primary monitor manually. DualSnap -------- This is a small tool that when started resides in the System Tray. It allows you to assign a hotkey which when pressed will capture the image on the primary screen and (optionally) display it on the secondary screen. It remembers previous screen captures (up to a configurable number) and these may be reviewed later on and either copied to the clipboard or saved as PNG files. Uninstall --------- To uninstall the programs, you will need to remove any shortcuts you manually added, remove the files you unzipped and remove the configuration and data files. The configuration and data files for the tools may be found under: %LOCALDATA%\GNE. Typically this directory is something like C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Local. If you have nothing else in %LOCALAPPDATA%\GNE that you want to keep, then it should be safe to delete this directory. Known problems -------------- If you wish SwapScreen to fully work when you have windows from applications that have been 'Run as Administartor', then you will also need to start SwapScreen with 'Run as Administrator'. DisMon has problems on Windows 7 when the (initial) primary monitor is disabled. Also on Windows XP, the task bar does not move with the primary monitor.
