How to switch monitor ? (hard)

45 minutes ago, Hardquestions said:

I have 2 monitors and 2 keyboards.

When i am at monitor No2 i cannot see monitor No1.

On display settings i have selected show only No1.

When i want to watch at No2 i go over to monitor No1 and turn it off.

How can i do that without having to go to monitor No1 and turn it off?

I am assuming you mean software switching?  Like a macro key or something (I've run into a situation where I need to switch between different monitors and always opening up the software to do it feels slow and clunky).

 

The solution I used was create .bat files with the commands

displayPrimary.bat

Inside the file put

DisplaySwitch.exe /internal

 

displaySecondary.bat

The text being

DisplaySwitch.exe /External

 

You can do the same for extend and clone.

so wait... you have two monitors, but you only use one at a time? so you turn monitor 1 off to watch on monitor 2? that doesn't even make sense to have 2 monitors then...

 

what yo should do is have them together, so then you can use both of them, otherwise its pointless to have 2

th first thing to do is to try and find a remote for that monitor so you can use it like a tv

Ye it does i have one for my bed and one for my desk.

the second thing would be to rig up a system that would press the power button when you pull a peice of fishing line or something, other than that idk how you could do that other than sell the other monitor and buy a tv

It is a TV. I just said monitor to simplify the problem.

saying monitor actually misleads the answers, since tvs and monitor are actually vastly diferent
