How to switch to next display device with hotkeys? (just like with nView)

Laptop Windows 7 32-Bit , GeForce 8600M-GS, Display Fusion Pro 3.3

Hi, I just switched operating systems from XP to Win7 on my laptop which has an Nvidia 8600M-GS video card. Before with Nvidia XP drivers for my video card I was able to activate nView (Nvidia Desktop Manager) and so was able to set up hotkeys for switching between display devices (so to be able to use either my internal laptop monitor, external 20" LCD monitor or projector one at a time very easily by just pressing a few buttons on my keyboard).

Now with Win7, drivers for my same Nvidia video card does not come with nview anymore (as I'm sure you know) so I have to use the laptop's function key + F3 to switch between the display devices which is inconvenient for me due to the laptop's location. I have two external displays hooked up to my laptop; an external 20" LCD monitor via the VGA port and a projector via the HDMI port. Using the Windows key + P only switches on/off my external LCD monitor on the VGA port, it does not allow me to switch to my projector via the HDMI port (only allows to switch to one device and not the other). And using my laptop's Function + F3 keys are inconvenient for me due to the laptop's location (I use external keyboard). So I have decided to try Display Fusion...

So I installed Display Fusion but now what? I don't see hotkeys that match Nvidia's "Switch To Next Display Device". To reiterate, all I want to do is switch display devices, one at a time, to show the desktop (or whatever I am currently viewing), either on my laptop's internal screen, my external 20" video monitor via VGA port, or my projector via HDMI. . Please help me set up keyboard hotkeys for that.

Thank you... Andy

Have you tried Win+P?

Hmmm, I explained in my original post already about my problem with Win+P. Can the software developer please provide some guidance please? Thank you...

Sorry, I read your post twice, saw F3 a couple of times, but completely missed your mention of Win+P.

Monitor configuration profiles will be coming in one of the 3.4.0 Beta versions, and I believe we'll also add some hotkeys to switch between the profiles. So hang tight, and you'll have the ability to do what you need in a few weeks :)

Thanks!

Oh okay, so the current version doesn't have the ability to do what I need? I will hang tight for 3.4.0 Beta. I really hope these "Monitor Configuration Profiles" and their hotkeys that you mentioned will allow me to do as I described in my query...

Correct, the current version doesn't sport this feature, but you should be able to do what you're describing in one of the later 3.4.0 Betas.

Thanks!
