Manage your monitors, change resolution and more
Select your monitor resolution easily
Click on Displays icon in the upper-right corner of your screen and choose your monitor resolution among all supported resolutions.
You’d like to set other resolution than those offered by macOS? No problem at all! Displays is listing even hidden resolutions.
Displays supports all active monitors attached to your Mac, including AirPlay monitor. With one click, you can enable or disable mirroring mode.
To easily identify a resolution, you can set a custom label instead of resolution width/height.
Group by Retina
You may choose or not to group Retina resolutions, and even hide too-small resolutions.
Rest your eyes with our Night mode
Light at night is part of the reason so many people don’t get enough sleep (learn more in our blog). When night is coming, you can enable a night mode to rest your eyes and avoid unwanted of lights, especially blue light.
With just one click, or with a keyboard shortcut, you can switch to macOS Dark theme (10.9 or later), lower screen brightness, reduce blue light emitted by your display, enable grayscale mode or even set another wallpaper. If your screen does not support brightness control, Displays will simulate screen dimming.
And night mode can be scheduled, either in a user-defined period or based on sunset/sunrise. You can even automatically switch to night mode when you launch any app of your choice!
Virtual mouse pointer highlighter for your presentations
Displays can act like a virtual laser pointer. All screen will be dimmed, except the part where your mouse cursor is. Clicks can also be visually highlighted and a sound can be played. Last but not least, everything is customizable (screen color, opacity, highlight radius…).
If you want to watch what your secondary monitor is displaying (for example, if this monitor is in another room, or not visible), Displays can enable a Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode overlay, that you can move everywhere. And PiP can be enabled for more than one monitor.
Take screenshots and upload them automatically to Dropbox or CloudApp. Many settings are available: timer, mouse pointer hiding/showing…
Hide your desktop
With one click, hide all your desktop icons, without loosing drag & drop support of your desktop. You may also use a keyboard shortcut.
Show a Test Card to help in monitor or video-projector calibration. Displays supports all screen ratios (4:3, 16:10 or 16:9).
Set customizable keyboard shortcuts to activate all functions, like changing resolution, enabling night mode or locating mouse pointer.
Get notifications when a monitor is plugged-in or plugged-out or when resolution is changed (other events are supported too).
