Editors' review

When one monitor isn't enough, you may appreciate the monitor management options this free utility provides.

DisplayFusion installs an icon in your system tray that holds a menu for configuring a multimonitor setup for your system. The tabbed menus are well organized and clearly designed for ease of use and reading.

This application performed well in our tests, responding quickly to our commands. We liked that we could configure hot key combinations for a number of tasks, such as moving a window to the center of a monitor, resizing a window, or spanning a window across all monitors. Other favorites include the capability to customize how items are dragged from one screen to another and synchronizing wallpaper across multiple monitors. Editing options was a simple process, and accessing a variety of controls was a snap, including resetting all hot keys with one click. We also appreciated how the developers allowed for support in German and Spanish, as well as English.

Any user who works with multiple monitors should give this top-notch freeware a try.

    "Really good, but it's a system hog"

    October 09, 2012   |   By ravells

    Version: DisplayFusion 4.1

    Pros

    I run three monitors. The features I love are:
    1. being able to have different wall paper on each monitor
    2. A screensaver that runs different pictures from my photo directory on all three monitors with each showing a different picture.
    3. Separate quicklaunch bars on each monitor.

    Cons

    My system briefly pauses every few seconds. I also found it impossible to exit the program. Even after I exited it, it kept running. I uninstalled the program, restarted my computer and I still have 3 different wallpapers on 3 monitors.

    Summary

    Great if you don't mind your system slowing a lot, Otherwise it's not for you. Your best bet is to download the free trial and see how it gets on with your system. It's such a pity it's a system hog - it would have been a great addition.

    "Very useful for multiple monitors"

    December 20, 2011   |   By mwilders

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.4

    Pros

    If you have 3 monitors like me then you need this program. I also have a huge TV attached to my system and I would be very frustrated if I did not have this software.

    - I can control all my backgrounds including random changes
    - I can see my windows start button on all my monitors - great for not having to run back and forth from my PC to my TV
    - I can change my windows login image
    - I can control all my keyboard shortcuts

    Cons

    Software continuously tries to access the developer's website until you buy the product but well worth the money.

    Summary

    Must have for multiple monitors.

    "Nice program very easy to figure out"

    October 06, 2011   |   By lookyloo6943more

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.4

    Pros

    It's done everything that windows wasn't able to do with 2 screens ... two different images , one image stretched, two task bars ( trial version ) I don't think I've even scratched the surface lol

    Cons

    You have to buy the real version to do some of the cool things

    Summary

    Overall its a great program and it does what it says it'll do ... was very hard to settle for free version when some of the options belonged in the pay side so I bought the program ... I think both options a re very good but if you would like more functionality you may buy the pro version too

    "Caused my screens to shift sideways and wrap around."

    July 23, 2011

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.3.1

    Pros

    Nothing good to say.

    Cons

    This program caused my screens to shift, moving the edges of the viewing to wrap around and meet in the middle of the monitor.

    Summary

    This program sucked for me, others may have good things to say, but I don't.

    "not totally free"

    June 14, 2011   |   By even0dds

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.3.1

    Pros

    none at all

    Cons

    I already use a FREE program to switch and stretch my wallpaper. I want a program to stretch screensaver. This "free" program offers it only for pro (paid) users

    Summary

    Getting pretty tired of these "free" programs.Just be honest, it is free with limited function.

    "Simply a polished, excellent program"

    May 25, 2011   |   By az85251

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.3.1

    Pros

    Works as intended.

    Cons

    None......

    Summary

    I don't write reviews often, but after using DisplayFusion daily for nearly two years, I can state unequivocally that this is an excellent product.

    Despite having to coexist with Windows 7 (I'm no fan of Microsoft), DisplayFusion works flawlessly on my five monitor Windows 7 64-bit system. The developer seems very committed to this program and frequently releases updates with innovative new features.

    Just my two cents here, and I have no relationship whatsoever with either DisplayFusion or its developer.

    "Not bad but the free version is very limited"

    February 03, 2011   |   By volderdash

    Version: DisplayFusion 3.2

    Pros

    Allows me to stretch one wallpaper across two screens very easily

    Cons

    Lots of features not available unless using the PRO (paid for) version.

    Summary

    CNET should really have an extra category other than the free, free to try and buy category which allows users to see that your only getting half the product. A little disapointed overall with that amount of things that are locked in the free version. Would recommend splitting a large wallpaper in two and then just setting each up individually on each screen instead of installing this.
