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.

    I've been using this program for a while now and have come to love it. I use it every day. I have run into one problem though. With Windows 10 it seems to not be able to re-load a profile if the display is off. This always worked on Windows 8 for me. I'm not sure if it's a Windows thing or the program though.

    So simple and easy to use. I looked around all over for a software to switch from my one monitor set up to another since I have a TV and a second monitor hooked up at the same time to my PC. All the other programs required installations and were rather bulky applications. This is currently taking up ~9MB of RAM and does exactly what I need it to.

    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.
