Dual Monitor Tools 1.9
Dual Monitor Tools is a software package for Windows users with dual or multiple monitor setups. All the tools are open source and free, and each tool is independent so you only need to install or run what you want.
Swap Screen Swap Screen
Provides hotkeys for performing common operations on the windows on your monitors. This includes operations like moving the active application window to the next monitor or to a pre-configured position, minimising all windows on a single monitor only and rotating the contents of all monitors. It also allows you to restrict mouse movement between monitors.
Dual Launcher Dual Launcher
This allows you to launch your favourite applications with a few key strokes and to position them at pre-configured positions on any of your monitors.
Dual Wallpaper Dual Wallpaper
This simplifies the process of using existing images as wallpaper on your monitors. You can either specify a different image on each monitor, or spread an image across two or more monitors or if you have enough monitors, a combination of these.
This can disable all secondary monitors while another application is run, or it can disable individual monitors and/or change the primary monitor and will restore the original state of these monitors when the application has finished. This can be quite handy when running certain games which don't scroll correctly if you have more than 1 monitor enabled.
Dual Snap Dual Snap
Allows you to capture the current image on the primary monitor and display it on your secondary monitor.
