I have two monitors attached to my computer on 2 different desks. I also have two keyboards and two mice. I like to use only one monitor at a time, as I move between each desk several times during the day.


I have an nvidia graphics card, and In Windows XP, I use nview (a software from nvidia) to create a keyboard shortcut to switch from one monitor to the other.


But there is no nview for Vista :(


Switching the monitors manually in Vista is a big pain, with several steps of clicking on things - which is fine if you do it rarely but, I do it a lot.


Does anyone know a way to switch monitors in Vista like I did in XP with Nview? Like, some hidden windows thing, or some software out there? I've been looking and not finding.

http://www.nvidia.com/docs/IO/40049/nView_Display_tech.pdf, , do you have a Quadro graphics device?


If not, UltraMon is the alternative I see frequently suggested.
