Turn off and on monitor

Hi,
is there a way to set the shortcut keys to turn off a monitor and then with the same shortcut key to turn it back on?

For example i have 3 monitors, the main is already on, other 3 are off and I want only one of the other two that are off to be turned on. And if i decide to turn off only one of them (even if it's the main monitor) to turn it off.
By off i mean disable or to put it in stand by.

It's not possible to put individual monitors in sleep mode, but you could disable them by creating Monitor Profiles for each setup and then assigning key combinations to each one.

Hope that helps!

Disable them is good and I already know how to do that. What i want is if I press ctrl+1 to disable monitor 1, when I press again ctrl+1 enables it.

Right, there isn't currently a way to do that directly, but you can with Monitor Profiles. For example, if you setup these profiles:

  • All 4 enabled
  • 1 disabled, 2, 3, 4 enabled
  • 1 enabled, 2 disabled, 3, 4 enabled
  • 1, 2 enabled, 3 disabled, 4 enabled
  • 1, 2, 3 enabled, 4 disabled

That should cover the scenarios for each monitor being disabled. Then you can assign a key combination to each of those profiles and load whichever one you want disabled.

That works. It looks like a mess and I don't think I will remember all the shortcuts but I found a way to assign/bind keys to those shortcuts to use as a button. So..it's close to what I wanted, maybe I will find it more useful in the future, meanwile I will search for a script to do that. Oh, by the way, I have script in cmd that does just that and it worked in windows 8.1 prefectly but it creates a mess in win 10, maybe I will find a script in C# (CSharp).

So thank you, you've done a great job with this software, that's why I payed for it. I really hope you will change what we discussed but if I will find a script I will post it if it's ok.

No worries, thanks for the kind words! I've added a feature request to our list for adding DF scripting functions that can enable/disable monitors.

Thanks!
