MultiMonitorTool v2.05

A small tool that allows you to do some actions related to working with multiple monitors.

With MultiMonitorTool, you can disable/enable monitors, set the primary monitor, save and load the configuration of all monitors, and move windows from one monitor to another. You can do these actions from the user interface or from command-line, without displaying user interface. MultiMonitorTool also provides a preview window, which allows you to watch a preview of every monitor on your system.




System Requirements and Limitations
• This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows XP and up to Windows 11. Both 32-bit and x64 systems are supported.
• When you disable a monitor on a system with 3 monitors or more, and then later enable back the monitor, the operating system may put the monitor in another position. In order to avoid this problem, use the 'Save Monitors Configuration' option to save your monitors configuration into a file and then load it later using the 'Load Monitors Configuration' option.
• This utility is only useful if your desktop is extended to multiple monitors. If you have multiple monitors that display the same content, then MultiMonitorTool is useless for you.

Changes
Version 2.05
Added drop-down menu to the toolbar for opening the recent config files.
The serial number of the monitor is now stored inside the monitor config file.
Added 'Use Serial Number In Load Config' option. If it's turned on, MultiMonitorTool uses the serial number of the monitor when loading the monitor configuration file.

Using MultiMonitorTool
MultiMonitorTool doesn't require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable file - MultiMonitorTool.exe

The main window of MultiMonitorTool contains 2 panes: The upper pane displays the list of all monitors detected on your system. When you select a monitor in the upper pane, the lower pane displays the details of all visible windows on the selected monitor.

You can select one or more monitors in the upper pane, and then use the following options: Disable Selected Monitors (Ctrl+F6), Enable Selected Monitors (Ctrl+F7), Disable/Enable Switch (Ctrl+F8), or Set As Primary Monitor (Ctrl+F9)
You can also select one or more Windows in the lower pane, and then use the 'Move Window To Next Monitor' and 'Move Window To Primary Monitor' options in order to easily move Windows from one monitor to the other.

Save/Load Monitors Configuration
MultiMonitorTool allows you to save the current configuration of all monitors on your system, including the screen resolution, colors depth, and monitor position of every monitor, by using the 'Save Monitors Configuration' option (Ctrl+Shift+S).
You can restore back the saved monitors configuration by using the 'Load Monitors Configuration' option (Ctrl+Shift+L).
You can also save/load the monitors configuration from command-line, by using the /SaveConfig and /LoadConfig command-line options.

Preview Window
The preview window shows you a preview of the monitor you select in the upper pane. It might be useful if non-primary monitors are turned off and you want to view the windows displayed in the other monitors. In order to enable/disable the monitor preview window, simply press F2. You can also resize the preview window to any size you like.

Command-Line Options
You can use the following command-line options to change the monitor configuration or to move windows automatically without displaying any user interface.
The <Monitor> parameter in all command-line options may contain the following values:
• Primary - Specifies that you want to do the action on the primary monitor.
• Monitor Name, as it appears in the 'Name' column, for example: \\.\DISPLAY1 , \\.\DISPLAY2, \\.\DISPLAY3
• Monitor Number - The number that appears in the monitor name. (1 for \\.\DISPLAY1, 2 for \\.\DISPLAY2, and so on...)
• Monitor ID, as it appears in the 'Monitor ID' column, for example: MONITOR\GSM59A4\{4d36e96e-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0008
• The serial number of the monitor, as it appears in the 'Monitor Serial Number' column.

/SetMonitors <Monitor 1 Config> <Monitor 2 Config> <Monitor 3 Config>...

Allows you to set the desired settings of multiple monitors at once, without using an external config file, for example:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetMonitors "Name=\\.\DISPLAY1 Primary=1 BitsPerPixel=32 Width=1920 Height=1080 DisplayFlags=0 DisplayFrequency=60 DisplayOrientation=0 PositionX=0 PositionY=0" "Name=\\.\DISPLAY2 BitsPerPixel=32 Width=1600 Height=900 DisplayFlags=0 DisplayFrequency=60 DisplayOrientation=0 PositionX=1920 PositionY=0"

In order to generate the /SetMonitors command for your current monitors configuration, simply select all monitors in the main window (Ctrl+A), and then use the 'Copy /SetMonitors Command' option (Under the Edit menu). The generated /SetMonitors command will be copied to the clipboard. By default, the /SetMonitors command is generated using the Monitor ID as name, but you can change it to monitor name or serial number from Options -> Copy /SetMonitors Command Mode.

Optionally, you can remove some of the variables from the generated /SetMonitors command, if you usually don't change them on your system. For example, if you don't change the monitor resolution and orientation, and you only need to change the monitor positions, you can remove all variables except of the Name, PositionX, and PositionY:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetMonitors "Name=\\.\DISPLAY1 PositionX=0 PositionY=0" "Name=\\.\DISPLAY2 PositionX=1920 PositionY=0"

You can also use the /SetMonitors command to set only specific display settings of specific monitor. For example, the following command sets the monitor with the specified serial number to 1920 X 1080 resolution:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetMonitors "Name=334DFRGV451 Width=1920 Height=1080"

/disable <Monitors> Disables the specified monitors. You can specify a single monitor or multiple monitors.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /disable 1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /disable \\.\DISPLAY3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /disable 1 2 3

/enable <Monitors> Enables the specified monitors.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /enable 3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /enable \\.\DISPLAY1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /enable 3 2

/switch <Monitors> Switches the specified monitors between enabled and disabled state.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /switch 3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /switch \\.\DISPLAY1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /switch \\.\DISPLAY2 \\.\DISPLAY3

/setmax <Monitors> Set the maximum resolution on the specified monitors.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /setmax 3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /setmax \\.\DISPLAY2 \\.\DISPLAY3

/SetOrientation <Monitor> <Orientation [0, 90, 180, 270] > Set the orientation of the specified monitor.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetOrientation 2 270
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetOrientation \\.\DISPLAY2 180 \\.\DISPLAY3 90
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetOrientation 1 0 2 0

/SetPrimary <Monitor> Set the primary monitor.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetPrimary 2
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SetPrimary \\.\DISPLAY2

/SetNextPrimary Set the next available monitor as the primary monitor. For example, if you have a system with 3 monitors and the first monitor is the primary, running this command will set the second monitor as the primary. running this command again will set the third monitor as the primary. And... running this command again will set (again) the first monitor as the primary.

/TurnOff <Monitors> Turns off the specified monitors. This feature works only if you have Windows Vista or later and the hardware supports DDC/CI.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOff 1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOff \\.\DISPLAY3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOff 1 2 3

/TurnOn <Monitors> Turns on the specified monitors. This feature works only if you have Windows Vista or later and the hardware supports DDC/CI.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOn 3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOn \\.\DISPLAY1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /TurnOn 3 2

/SwitchOffOn <Monitors> Switches the specified monitors between on and off state. This feature works only if you have Windows Vista or later and the hardware supports DDC/CI.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SwitchOffOn 3
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SwitchOffOn \\.\DISPLAY1
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SwitchOffOn \\.\DISPLAY2 \\.\DISPLAY3

/PreviewOnly <Monitor> {x} {y} {width} {height} Allows you to run MultiMonitorTool in monitor preview only mode. In this mode, only the monitor preview window is displayed.
You must specify the monitor name to display in the preview window. Optionally, you can also specify the position and size to set the preview window.
Examples:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /PreviewOnly \\.\DISPLAY2
MultiMonitorTool.exe /PreviewOnly \\.\DISPLAY1 10 10 300 200

/SaveConfig <Filename> Saves the current configuration of all your monitors into the specified filename, including the screen resolution, colors depth, and monitor position.
You can load the saved configuration back into the system by using the /LoadConfig command-line option.
Example:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /SaveConfig "c:\temp\monitors1.cfg"

/LoadConfig <Filename> Loads the monitors configuration that you previouly saved with /SaveConfig
Example:
MultiMonitorTool.exe /LoadConfig "c:\temp\monitors1.cfg"
