IDEA: App to set monitor position/order
« on: September 28, 2011, 01:46:18 PM »
Ok, this is a crazy request but I need an app that can set my monitors (physical devices) to a predefined order and position.  Like you would do in the display properties settings window.
Background: I have a laptop + 19" + 19" (via usb) and they usually map/assign as [1][3][2]

Occassionally after rebooting the monitor position gets altered (never the same) today it was...
    [2]
[1][3]

Does anybody have any ideas on how to set this through AHK?

This is a very good idea, and your not the only one whose monitor positions get randomly messed up through rebooting.

Would be interesting to see if anybody has a fix/solutions!
