WS Display Settings
WS Display Settings is a command line tool with optional GUI to save and restore Windows display settings to and from file as well as adjust the monitor brightness/contrast/color settings itself. Quickly create multi-monitor setups. Make presets for laptop, tv, monitor and beamer and switch between different display configurations. It can save and restore the exact binary representation of the current Windows display settings. Included is a simple system tray menu that makes using the utility extra easy. One can also easily save and restore the arrangement (position, size and state) of all windows across displays.

WS Display Settings is useful for quick and easy automatic configuration of multiple monitors or display devices like beamers. You can create shortcuts for presets so users don't have to play with Windows display settings. All display settings can be saved to file including details like the monitor resolution, position and primary setting.
By ‘installing’ WsDisplaySettings a simple mouse click on a saved display settings file is enough to apply these settings. This makes it possible to create preset files (with file extension .dis) with different display configurations for end users so they can easily switch to the preferred display mode.
This is a small optional graphical utility that sits in the Windows System Tray to the right of the clock.
If the icon is hidden behind the 'Show hidden icons'-arrow you can simply drag it to a visible part of the systray.
