As its name suggests,
Dual Monitor Tools
comprises a collection of productivity features designed for multi-monitor systems. Nevertheless, some of its features can come in handy to users that only have a single monitor connected to their PC.
Enclosing various functions previously associated with individual executables, the main application in the package is automatically sent to the system tray upon launch. The right-click menu enables users to access all its functions and options.
With its help, you can control the cursor movement between different monitors, block cursor inside a specific screen, move it to another, or even set it to resist movement between screens, all by using custom hotkeys.
Dual Monitor Tools provides you with full control over the position of windows on connected monitors. You can quickly move a window to another screen and move it around, switch focus to specific screen areas, rotate screens, or toggle a specific desktop.
The package also comprises an application launcher, ready to help you open specific applications using so-called ‘magic words’, which you can either define manually or import.
Each magic word is associated with a program (EXE, PIF, COM, BAT, or CMD) or to an internal module of Dual Monitor Tools. Giving you full control over the launcher, Dual Monitor Tools enables you to define additional paramters and customize the on-screen coordinates and window type.
Dual Monitor Tools also features desktop capturing capabilities, enabling you to take screenshots of the primary monitor and display them on the secondary ones.
Most of the actions you can perform with Dual Monitor Tools are triggered by custom hotkeys, so you can create your own working system. Furthermore, you have magic words at your disposal for launching external programs and running files, so things should get even more easier.
Aside from the main DMT executable, Dual Monitor Tools also comes with a utility for managing wallpapers on more than one screen, named Dual Wallpaper. With its help, you can spread a single image across multiple monitors or configure different wallpapers on each screen, your choice.
