Loading a Monitor Profile on Startup

To load a Monitor Profile on Windows startup, you'll need to use the DisplayFusion command line utility. Follow the steps below to load a Monitor Profile automatically on Windows startup:

  1. Open Windows Explorer ("My Computer") and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\
  2. Right-click DisplayFusionCommand.exe (may just show as DisplayFusionCommand) and choose "Create Shortcut", when prompted to place it on the desktop, click Yes
  3. Right-click the DisplayFusionCommand shortcut that was created on the desktop, and choose "Properties"
  4. Add the following to the end of the target box (make sure to leave a space before the hyphen, and enter the exact name of the Monitor Profile in the quotes): -monitorloadprofile "monitor profile name"
  5. Click OK
  6. Optional: Rename the shortcut to something like "Load DF Monitor Profile"
  7. Click Start > All Programs, right-click Startup and choose "Open" to open the Startup folder in Windows Explorer
  8. Drag the DisplayFusionCommand shortcut from the desktop into the Startup folder
  9. Open the DisplayFusion Settings, click the Advanced Settings button, and enable the Monitor Configuration: Don't Show Confirm Prompt option

How do I get the monitors to show different items and to be stand alone?

On Windows 10 (Pro or Enterprise) can this load a monitor profile before the Windows Login appears?

I have a weird config where one monitor in a system isnt normally visible and I want to ensure that the User's monitor is primary before the windows login appears.

Hi Aaron,

Unfortunately this isn't possible.
