Display Changer X Now Available

Display Changer X has been published to the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 and 11. Display Changer X supersedes the Display Changer and Display Changer II applications.

Display Changer X creates a configuration file from your existing settings. The user then double-clicks a configuration file and Display Changer X configures your display(s) to match that pre-defined setup (single monitor, extended monitors, and cloned/duplicated monitors). Display Changer X changes your monitors’ width, height, color depth, refresh rate (v-sync), rotation, and scaling. Display Changer X can also modify the positions of your monitors in a multiple-monitor setup.

Display Changer X includes advanced options for more experienced users. You can tick a check box and Display Changer X will prompt you to specify an application (or document) to open after applying the configuration. Optionally, you can specify another configuration for Display Changer X to apply after that application exits. For example, you can use a configuration file to configure your monitors with a specific resolution and refresh rate, open a video-editing application, and then restore the original configuration when you exit the video editor.

Display Changer X is great for enterprise IT administrators who need to configure machines in corporate or educational organizations, gamers, home-theater users, and anyone who needs to easily change their computer’s display setup. Unlike Display Changer and Display Changer II, the configuration files created by Display Changer X on one machine can be copied to other machines with the same model of monitors.

You can find more details on the Microsoft Store. When you purchase a license through the Microsoft Store, you can install Display Changer X on up to ten computers, and you will receive free updates.
