Save monitor configurations of Windows 7 or 10 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 (e.g. enable/disable a TV which is attached to the HDMI port, make an attached TV the primary display to remove tearing switch which monitor is on the left/right...). Along the monitor state and setup 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.

Great program, fixes a problem I've been dealing with for years. However there seems to be an anomaly I'm dealing with. I use this program to switch between 2 monitor setups connected to 1 computer. 1 triple display array, and a dual monitor configuration for recording. I have a triple profile configured where the main display is the middle one, and a dual display with 2 separate monitors with the right one being the main display(5 monitors total), however when I attempt to switch between the 2 profiles nothing happens aside from the monitors in use going black for a few seconds, before returning to how there where prior. all in all though a serious piece of software, I only created an account to 1, thank you, and 2, let you know about this strange circumstance.
I've been looking for ages a program that allows me to switch my 2 monitors off and turn my TV (5 metres away) on with one click and back again. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! :DDDDDD
Your software has proven to be a reliable step-saver. Thanks!
Convenient! I like that the app saves almost all your video settings, not just your screen resolution. TIP: Make sure you label your profiles by which monitor they apply to. For some reason the screen settings are only valid on the specific monitor they are set on. So you will get an error message when you try to use the profiles on another monitor. The downside here is that you probably have to redo all of your profiles if you get a new monitor or video card. TIP 2: You can easily rename and reorder your profiles by simply renaming the .xml files in the folder: C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\MonitorSwitcher\Profiles\ No need to restart program. CONCLUSION: I put this on all of my family computers. I love it. It makes life so easy when you use your PC as both an entertainment center and a primary computer. It's also handy if you have poor eye-sight, or if you use multiple monitors.
