Description

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.

If you like the program say thanks by clicking the Donation link in the menu!

    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.

    Does what it says it should. I only wish it would also switch sound device like Windows 7's built in display switcher does.
