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"
    (e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusionCommand.exe" -monitorloadprofile "Gaming")
  5. Target Profile
    Optional: Click the "General" tab and Rename the shortcut for clearer definition (e.g. "Load DF Monitor Profile.").
  6. Click OK.
  7. The procedure for adding programs to Windows Startup varies for different versions. All require the shortcut you've created to be added to the Startup folder.
  8. Open the Windows Run dialog box (Win + R). Type
    and select OK.
    Open Startup
  9. Drag the DisplayFusionCommand shortcut from the desktop location into the Startup folder.
  10. Open the DisplayFusion Settings, click the Advanced Settings button.
    Advanced Settings
  11. Search for and double-click "Don't Show Confirmation Prompt" Setting.
  12. Select "Confirmation prompts are not shown" and click OK.

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.
