Use shortcut for switch main screens on windows login

Avatar from
1 discussion post

I have my PC connected to a Monitor and also to a TV in the living room using a 5meter hdmi cable through the wall.

Currently, everytime I boot the PC, windows 10 sticks to the previously used screen. If I want to use the TV and the last used screen was the monitor, I have to blindly switch to the TV with the Windows+P keys, which, for some reason doesn't always work.

I've enabled some monitor profiles to set up each one as the main one with a shortcut, but I can't get it to work before logging on my windows account.

Is there any way to enable the shortcuts to switch between main screens on the windows login?

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately DisplayFusion can't change Monitor Profiles before logging in, no. The Monitor Config and Global HotKey APIs don't become available until after logging in :(
