Description

Save multi monitor configurations of Windows 7 and easily switch between them with a click in a popup menu of your taskbar.

The tool is designed for users with two or more monitors who in certain situations would like to quickly change their monitor setup for performing a certain tasks (e.g. enable/disable a TV which is attached to the HDMI port, make an attached TV the primary display to get rid of tearing problems, switch which monitor is on the left/right...). Along the monitor state and setup (right, left, extended, disabled) the resolution is also saved and restored.

The program works by saving a current monitor setup as configured using the windows control panel to an xml file. Once saved the configuration can be quickly restored at any time. Requires .NET 4.0 Framework to be installed.

The program is quite simple and in an early development stage. It is provided without any warranty. If you accidentally disable all your monitors boot into safe mode to fix the problem.

    My settings 1. Video card: Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile 2. 3 monitors: Main - Dell 24", Second - LG 27", Third Sharp 42" My video card does not support triple monitor. Dell -> DVI, LG -> VGA, and Sharp -> HDMI I want to work on my Dell & LG monitors, but sometimes I want to play games and watch videos on Dell & Sharp. This software help me switching between Dell + LG to Dell + Sharp in a click (actual 2 clicks). Without this software, I have to buy a cable splitter, or a HDMI switcher, or I have to go to PC settings... bla bla bla Thank you very much, I love it.

    Exactly what I was looking for. Now I can switch to a more manageable desktop resolution when I use remote desktop. Truly thank you. Please keep up the good work because this is invaluable.
