Disable Monitors
Is it possible (if not this is a feature-request ^^) to disable other monitors when opening a specific program?
My laptop is pretty weak when it comes to gaming - so when I start some hardware-intensive game, I disable my other monitors before - to reduce lag (even when the game is just on one monitor, it runs smoother if there are no other monitors)

You may be able to do this using Monitor Profiles and Window Location. If you setup a Monitor Profile for just the single monitor, then create a Window Location rule (Settings > Window Location) and select that Monitor Profile in the "Run Function on Window" section, it should try to load the profile when the game is detected. However, you may run into a timing issue, where it's not able to switch before the game launches.

If you get a chance to try it out, let us know how it goes, and if there are any issues, we'll see what we can do :)

Works wonderful! I can't say it enough how good your support is!

One thing though: for half of the games you will be brought back to desktop because of the approval-window what's pretty annoying.
For the other half of the games I tested you won't come back to desktop, but the configuration will be reverted after the few seconds you normally have.

An option to disable this approval-window would be awesome for a function like this

You can disable it in the Advanced Settings (button at the bottom of the normal DisplayFusion Settings window) :)

The option is in the Monitor Configuration section, and is called "Don't Show Confirm Prompt"

Thanks!

Great! - I hadn't even noticed the button ^^
Some interesting tweaks in there ;)

Thanks I've been looking for that option. I want to start a game that requires I turn off my other screens and it worked like a charm for 10 seconds then would revert back to the last monitor setup. The confirmation requesttor was hidden behind the game so I could never answer it.

Might I suggest you place that option in the "window locations settings or in a funtion under load Monitor profiles. Like "Load profile xtz and supress Resolution Confrim propmt"?

Thanks

PS
Is there away to auto go back to the monitor proflie I had after I exit the game? eampale: I start a game that switches to single monitor and then when I exit it switches back to Surround?

This would also be my last problem with this - it isn't too hard to change the profile back manually, but it would be nice to have something like this...

@pii: In the DisplayFusion Advanced Settings, you can use the "Monitor Configuration > Disable Confirm Prompt" to supress it.

@pii and HannesH: This is something we're hoping to add in a future version, so we'll be sure to post an update if/when we're able to.

Thanks!
