Dual Monitor Tools is a software package for Windows users with dual or multiple monitor setups.

All the tools are open source and free, and each tool is independent so you only need to install or run what you want.

Current status

The latest release of Dual Monitor Tools is 2.0 and is available for downloading from SourceForge.

The major change between this version and the 1.* versions is that the functionality of the old Swap Screen, Dual Launcher, Dual Wallpaper Changer and Dual Snap tools has been integrated into a single tool.

The tools/modules currently available are:


This is now the main tool in the system with support for multiple modules. It runs in the notification area and double clicking on it's icon will bring up the options for all of the modules it supports.

DMT - Cursor

This is a module within DMT which allows you to restrict cursor movement between monitors. You can lock the cursor to the current monitor, or make it sticky so that extra effort is required to move it between monitors or the cursor can be completely free to move between monitors.

DMT - Launcher

This is a module within DMT which allows you to launch your favourite applications with a few key strokes and to position them at pre-configured positions on any of your monitors. You can also use it to launch your favourite websites and to run any of the functionality provided by the modules in DMT.

DMT - Snap

This is a module within DMT which allows you to take a snapshot of primary monitor and show it on the secondary monitor. Previous snapshots can be viewed, saved to a file or copied to the clipboard.

DMT - Swap Screen

This is a module within DMT which provides hotkeys for performing common operations on the windows on your monitors. This includes operations like moving the active application window to the next monitor or to a pre-configured position, minimising all windows on a single monitor only and rotating the contents of all monitors.

DMT - Wallpaper Changer

This is a module within DMT which changes the wallpaper at regular intervals and/or at start up. Offers similar support for multiple monitors as to that provided by Dual Wallpaper. Images for wallpaper may come from multiple sources.

Dual Wallpaper

Standalone tool that simplifies the process of using existing images as wallpaper on your monitors. You can either specify a different image on each monitor, or spread an image across two or more monitors or if you have enough monitors, a combination of these.
