Hotkey Primary Displays RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Ok this should be simple but its proven to be a really annoying task

    I have a 21in computer monitor and I also have a 47 HDTV hooked up to my computer with a Radeon HD 6950

    I want to be able to change the primary display while keeping the other one as extended without having to go through all those pesky menus.

    No Win+P is not what I'm looking for

    I would also not have to use some third party program to do this

    on another note I did find this program called DisMon which was part of a set of tools called DualMonitorTools-1.8 and I can set it to a hotkey and it will do what I want it to but once I close the program it reverts the settings it has changed. Maybe it could be made as part of a service?

  • Edit: I've found out how to do this perfect! 

    Ok first you need to need to get that program DisMon


    Now you can set your own parameters with the program their explained in the link.

    so I made a shotcut with the parameters -1p -x    this set the primary monitor to the 1st monitor then exits the program while keeping the settings. then I used the Catalyst Control Center hotkey options to set it to my hotkey!

    I also did -2p -x to set my HDTV as primary and exit while saving the setting and hotkeyed the same way

    Hope this helps others!
