What operating system are you talking about?
What's wrong with the Lock Workstation command on Windows?
I'm sure all modern OS's have an equivalent.

I'm reasonably sure it wasn't changed intentionally & my guess would be it consist of just alphanumeric characters with length under 15.
So I would only try passwords in that range a a first pass ...

I don't know if this forum is against hacking tools but this is nothing I can't do myself - I just don't like reinventing the wheel.

I have made an Excel add-in with custom functions that I and many other ppl at my company use.
I gave myself full control & others read only access but IT changed permissions & somehow somebody else got in & changed the VBA password so now I can't edit & add new functions  :wallbash:
I don't have another unprotected copy so my only option is to get past the VBA password.

I've searched google but can only find commercial apps for $30-$50.
I'm not prepared to pay that for a once off thing.

Does anyone here know a good freeware solution?

Otherwise I think I can do this with brute force & an autohotkey script but that might take hours or days...
Has anyone made such a password generating script in AHK?
If so I could just modify for the VBA situation.

Yr best bet would be either AutoHotkey or AutoIt.
For once off things the approach you describe is fine 2 drag & resize controls.
If you use these tiny apps regularly then that's too tedious 2 do all the time.
Rather have a script made in these languages monitoring 4 yr badly designed apps & as soon as they appear the windows & controls are resized automatically.

I prefer AutoHotkey cos of mouse hook support but both the above apps will do wat you ant very elegantly.
If you're lost then just download, install & play around with AutoHotkey & we can assist you more from there.

I don't have the time 2 do it ryt now but this would be a small app in autohotkey that checks the size & position of the secondary monitor & overlays it with a black screen when you press yr hotkey.
Press again & the overlay wud go away - this wudn't turn off the monitor but give a similar effect.
If you wanna do a proper turn off that's a hardware thing (I think).
Maybe if yr secondary monitor is plugged into an X10 switch & then yr hotkey would use the X10 USB interface to toggle that monitor on/off.
But it's possible the Windows Power API's have some obscure method that allows you 2 turn individual monitors on/off rather than all monitors.
Think the AHK idea wud be the quickest to implement.
Maybe take skrommel's ghoster app & modify it a little.
