Launch App and then Switch Monitor Profile

10 discussion posts
I want to change monitor profiles when particular apps are opened.
EXAMPLE- Open After Effects ... Load Profile 1

I assumed this would be possible using triggers but I am not clear on how to accomplish it. Can I get some suggestions?

If you head to the triggers section, you can create a new trigger. You'll want to use the "Window Created" event (this is set by default). You can then select the application you want in the "Process Filename" box. Finally, you can add the "Run Function" action, and select the monitor profile you would like to load when the application is run.

We also have a help guide found here if you would like to look into it a bit further:

Hope this helps!

Hmmm... this kind of works but I run into the issue of having my windows all messed up because the app opens essentially before the screens.

I think I need a custom script that loads the monitor profile then launches the app...

I am thinking...

1. Check if monitor profile loaded
2. load or dont need to load profile
3. launch app
4. maximize window of app

Then I would attach that to a shortcut and use the commandline interface to run the function....

I will try to make this and post here...
