Switching 2nd monitor off with hot key or shortcut

Commodore
3 discussion posts
Hello,
I bought this software recently and was looking for a easy fast way to turn system to single display with push of a button or shortcut, like the option windows10 has with "extend display or second monitor only", but could not find anything like that on this displayfusion software, i looked around the guide also but could not see that option, could u please let me know if u have found a setting for this, im already using the useful fade option but still toggling to 1 display seems necessary option to have.

Greetings Commodore,

1) Create the different monitor profiles that you require (right click the tray icon, go to 'Monitor Profiles', and select 'Create/Edit Monitor Profiles'
2) In DisplayFusion Settings, go 'Functions' (on left), and scroll down until you see 'Load Next Monitor Profile (alphabetically)' and double click that entry
3) Select your hotkey to activate the command and then press OK to save, then OK on the main settings page
4) Try out your new hotkey!!!

A nice and elegant way to cycle through monitor profiles. Before I had Display Fusion I did the same with autoit/autohotkey/Display Changer II ... a bit more complex ... with DisplayFusion it is significantly easier!

Thanks for thorough explanation! so as i understand i have to create a new profile and make this custom setting to toggle between 1 or 2 display mode, will follow your instruction and hopefully i manage to make it

initially i thought there has to be like in menu setting made already for such a important function, as u mentioned windows 10 already has this with (WinKey + P) u can select between single display or extended display, but with this program i think it seems like mostly customer has to make his own settings as such with new profiles.
